My feelings on turning 28

my birthday

For the past two years I have written a post on turning another year older and although a little late on this one I didn’t want to miss this year. 

This year I turned 28 and I feel really settled and content. I’m at a really good place. A place where I feel strong enough to be wise with my choices of friends and people who I share my time with. And I have learned I really like my own company too.

I don’t need to apologise all the time, or to people please. Which I think we can all be guilty of. I know I am.

My children are at such a wonderful age I’m enjoying them so much they are so independent yet still want my cuddles. It’s a nice feeling. 

Me and Daniel, we feel stronger then ever, it will be 9 years this year since we met and it honestly doesn’t feel a day over a year. Our relationship has always been equal parts with love and appreciation but every year our love has grown.

I definitely put that down to having children and getting married. Going through those experiences with someone (the right one) makes your relationship stronger and more satisfying then ever. Daniel is really attentive and appreciative of me. He always supports me and understands me and I’m really grateful for that. It is because of him I feel so content and happy. He adds to my life in so many ways. 

I’m just genuinely really happy we have more then enough and we have each other which is the most important thing in the world. I really believe that. 

I’m also feeling so excited to be growing our family again this year. I genuinely didn’t think we would have anymore children. But the dream was always there in my mind. I love being a mum so much.

my birthday

I think it was a mix of two things, the realisation that Archie was off to big school next September and that this really was a now or never decision for us. And it feels like it almost happened overnight. It was so quick. 

I do feel each year makes you a little wiser, in the sense that you realise what is important to you and its okay to be who you are. I really love that about getting older.

On my birthday we had a really quiet one, family over for dinner (a bbq) and some M&S cake. And then the following day which was fathers day we went for a lovely picnic. It was a lovely weekend. I wont forget it.

Life is wonderful. Here is to anther wonderful year. Lots more love and happiness for all of us.

    Sounds like you had a lovely day, It nice to know that you feel happy and content, I think that your 20’s are the hardest years of your life, as it is when you’re deciding what and who you want in your life, and the age most people have children. Can’t wait to watch your family grow, your such a wonderful parent alreadyww. xx
