twenty already?

Sunglasses: Target earrings: gift wrap: Target belt: thrifted bottoms: Lauren Conrad via Kohl's shoes: Frock Candy
I still can't wrap my head around the fact that it's September 10th! With my mans birthday passed, I guess that means my birthday is next up on the list. With it only two days away, it feels surreal and almost like I'm not ready for it to happen. I asked Jared the other night if he felt like he was the age he was (22); old enough to be that age, wise enough to be two years into his twenties. Of course he said he did, but I'm not so sure.

Twenty feels so old to me. Go ahead and laugh, but sometimes I don't feel like I am old enough to feel twenty. Not that I don't feel old enough to act my age, but somewhere between 17 and 20 flew by. Like all the years meshed together and I don't know how I got to this point. 

However unsure I may feel, I do feel very blessed to have been given this time. God has a purpose for me and He is the reason why I made it these twenty years. So here I go to embrace the old/new me. No longer a teen, and a double digit with a two involved. I guess I can live up these teen years for the next two days.

side note: would you believe that this wrap was in the maternity section at Target? Not that I need it for that purpose, but I needed it for it's pure cuteness. Since when did all maternity clothes look like regular clothes? I guess I should prepare myself for the awkward stares since I will be shopping there now.

Anyone else feel like their age came way too fast?

I'm 22 and I still have to stop myself referring to me and my friends as teenagers! It takes a while to get used to.

Happy early birthday!!! It's always a hurdle going into a new age group I think! But you're still so young! And you look beautiful :) Enjoy your day!

Happy of happiest birthdays! =)
Yes, time does fly and age becomes nothing more than a number the older you get. OH boy...I'm aging myself by saying that...but it does get better as you get older...even if it doesn't feel like it sometimes =)

xo,

I certainly feel that way. I'm over half-way through being 23 and it feels totally surreal and just not quite possible. Wishing you a happy early birthday!
