My Twenties: By the Numbers.

If some of this post looks familiar, it should. I published this originally last year on my birthday, but wanted to run it again, with some appropriate updates:

When I was twenty, I graduated from The University of Texas with two degrees, the first person in my family to do so - it was a very proud day :) (less so for my hair...)

At twenty-one, I bought my first (and favorite) car on my own:

Twenty-two took me to NYC for a year, and was the year I bought my home, an accomplishment that still floors me to this day:

I lived on top of this bar (a dangerous idea for a 22-year-old!!)

And two blocks from Central Park, where you can find one of my favorite places, the Literary Walk:

My house, shiny and new! To this day, I adore this house :)

Twenty-three was the year I met David:

Twenty-four, we moved in together, and my house became OUR house:

Twenty-five, we gained another household member when we welcomed our sweet baby girl:

At twenty-six, I was surprised by a beautiful proposal one May evening:

At twenty-seven, I married the love of my life, and the father of my beautiful baby girl:

Twenty-eight brought our first anniversary together, which was also the day (technically one day before) we announced this little miracle:

As for twenty-nine, well, with a little luck that things keep going and growing, this will be the year that we welcome our second - and final - child, our son.


  1. This all made me a little teary. What a beautiful progression.

  2. LOVE this post!!!! So cool to look at a whole decade in fast forward.
