Seeing that I already went through the whole milestone birthday last year, this one feels way less special & comes with way less pressure. I like that. Honestly, & I know this is cliche, the older I get the less important the “number” becomes. I remember thinking that thirty(one) sounded really, really old & there are definitely times that I have a complete reality check on my age (like when I am watching reality tv & every single person is at least five years younger than me, most more than that). Yet most of the time, I love this age I am at, I love how much more life experience I have, & therefore how much less I care about the little things that don’t matter. And of course, most of all, I love that I get to have Waverly Maye as my birthay present year after year.
Since this weekend also marks Labor Day, we have accepted the fact that it’s now time to say good-bye to summer & hello to fall. It’s definitely a bittersweet feeling, we really are excited for the months to come but this summer babe is going to have some serious water withdrawal. We will forever remember this summer as one of our best ever, the one in which (among many other things), Waverly basically learned to swim, count to fifteen, fell in love with her babies, & also, that the sun turned her red hair strawberry-blonde. 😉 It’s crazy how many people have stopped to ask me where she gets her blonde hair from lately, I’m so anxious to see if it goes back red this fall & winter!
We are wishing you all the best holiday weekend, enjoy these last summer moments with those you love! XOXO
