I turn 31 tomorrow, I’m excited to be in another year and I can’t believe time is going by so fast. I fully accept this new age and hope it is a new and wonderful year. I generally don’t fear getting older, not at all but I do get a bit weepy nostalgic a lot these days. The last two years have been a lot of up and down and I praying for some new-found stability. I’m ready for whatever is coming regardless.
I also cut my hair off Wednesday night at two in the morning with safety scissors, (don’t do this-the safety scissor part.) because I couldn’t find my shears. So, there’s that. My hair had gotten so long and it is very thick, it feels like I’m wearing a blanket on my head always, I just got fed up trying to sleep and went to the bathroom and chopped it off. So, new birthday year, new birthday hair. It feels so much better even though this is pretty much the same haircut I had all of middle school. It’s nice and a throwback. I feel all Babysitter’s Club/ Sweet Valleyish.
The Doc Martens are back, it’s been cool enough for them and I got these last year for my birthday and couldn’t wear them throughout the pregnancy, but yay, they are back. They still need substantial breaking in. I wore these same shoes in burgundy all throughout high school. Doc Martens were my favorite, I had a mary jane pair and short black pair. So maybe I am getting all nostalgic and reverting to my Daria style from High School. I have listened to quite a bit of 90’s music recently and it has been such a strange comfort to me. Strange because we know how depressing 90’s rock was but I love the memories. Maybe I’ll share my 90’s rock Spotify mix at some point in the future. Right now, it’s a secret, but not really.
It is also a birthday or birth month rather for my blog, It’s been a year since I made the switch over to ellieeugenia.com and I want to thank all my friends and loyal readers. It really means a lot to me to have people who are investing in this with me. I love you guys. I always have a lot on my mind and having somewhere to let it out has been refreshing. Thank you for sticking with me, friends and subscribers.
I will be giving away one of my Geometry Bears screenprints as a birthday present to one person (pictured above). I try to only do give aways for things I really love or that mean something to me. This print is one I did that represents being a Mother, I have one hanging in my Living Room to remind me. If you’d like to enter just leave me a comment here telling me about your best birthday ever and also share the link to this post with someone. I’ll pick a winner at random next week.
I’m pretty sure my best birthday was a Rapunzel Birthday Party I had as a child, complete with Rapunzel Head Piñata and long braided hair. Yah, I liked Rapunzel before it was cool. So Hipster of me. ; ) Last year’s was also pretty great, spending time with good friends, good food and cake. Of course, cake, Cake is King.
Once again, thank you for meeting me here. It makes the lists as one of my Happy Things.
