I'm 28 today! Not to get all sappy or morbid, but last year for my 27th birthday post, I was crying in the photo. You obviously couldn't tell since the photo was of my backside with balloons, but yep... I had tears streaming. I took the photo a couple days before my birthday, like I usually do, and I was in just such a bad place during this time, last year (or pretty much all of 2018,) that when I was posing for the photos and thinking about everything that was going on at the time, my eyes just started to fill up with tears. Anyway, not going to get too deep here, but a full year from then has gone by, and I'm truly MUCH happier than I was then... which I didn't think was possible. I literally looked forward to a day where I could smile and actually mean it. Thankfully, the smile in the photos above are genuine. Each year brings different phases of life, and I'm excited to begin this new one.
