twenty six.

Today I turned 26. It's a number that is closer to 30 than 20. I had anticipated freaking out about that originally but that didn't end up being an issue. Sometimes I look back on all that we've done and been through and feel much older than 26. Not in a worn-out, overextended, where-did-my-life go kind of way but a wow, I feel accomplished way. It's been a pretty wonderful 26 years.

Last year, Ethan was kicking the ever-loving life out of my insides and sent my birthday dinner back up again and me to bed with a wicked case of heartburn. This year, he got to help me blow out the candles on my birthday cake. Lately things have really been falling into perspective in regards to how quickly time does pass. I'm already in the throws of planning his first birthday party and that seems unreal, especially when I remember this time last year.

One of my greatest birthday wishes was to get my hair cut. I'm not very good at following the instructions of my awesome stylist to come back every eight weeks for a trim. The last time I got my hair cut, I was pregnant. It's been closer to eight months and my Eddie Vedder-esque hair was only proof of my negligence. As much as I love the '90's, it was time to retire my hair with the grunge period and my stylist worked his magic to save my hair from it's state of apparent desperation.

My husband had taken the day off of work and the best part about that was that he could come to My Gym with us. My Gym is already Ethan's favorite place to be but he was loving it even more with his daddy there, too.

As for the rest of my day? I kept it classy by requesting take-out from Chipotle and a movie night. (We watched 500 Days Of Summer.)

Maybe it's closer to 30 than 20, but 26 is off to a fabulous start.
