Last of the Twenties
I remember when I started my twenties. I decided to say, "In my twenties" to the question of age. I don't think I ever really did that. It was just a joke to handle losing teenager status. I loved being a teenager. I was dumb, selfish, foolish, irresponsible, giddy and lame. But, I was just a teenager, so it was ok. Twenty meant responsibility.
Today is my last day of twenties and I'm going to miss it. The twenties have been good to me. I've loved being in my twenties.
Quick recap of my twenties:
21-22: Mission to Guatemala
24: Married, Graduated from BYU
24-26: Worked at L3 Communications
26: Had Elle, Moved to NY, Ran a Marathon
27: Had Bryn
29: Had Wade, Moved to PA, Ran a 1/2 Marathon
Ok, this list is very lame. It's hard to think of what to include in a recap list spanning a decade. And since it is late, this is what you get :). I only have a couple hours of the twenties left!
I realized last week that it is time for me to move into the thirties. At playgroup, one of my friends saw my socks and said, "Where did you get those socks? Can I buy them from you? My daughter would love them!" Her daughter is in Primary. Yikes! These were my lucky frog socks I would wear on test days in college. Really, no one (including me) should be wearing them. Both soles have holes. But for some reason, those were the socks I grabbed in the morning. I understand that turning thirty does not mean you have to throw out all your cool socks. But, I should be able to put to rest socks that have been dead for many years. Give up the frogs Jodie. Welcome to 30.
Bonus points for those who can identify what year the pictures is from.
