Get ready for post overload this week....Summer had me busy and I've once again, been neglecting to post.....sigh.

I turned 33 the end of July.

I'm posting a bunch of photos from that weekend but this post isn't going to be about that this year. I'm sure you can see by the photos that we had a great time. Polo match, dinner, drinks and friends. 

So much has changed in the last few years of my life. I've grown tremendously and I've found strength inside myself that I didn't know I had. Always growing stronger and wiser. We've had real, good and just happy days. We've had some of the biggest trials yet. And it's all been part of the journey. We've watched the kids grow and I've made new friends. We've tried new things and traveled to new places.

People always ask, "what has been your favorite age so far?"
For me, that was 25.
I was coming out of my crazy, wild years and learning who I was and what I was made of. 25 was a year of nothing but happy memories. And also the year that I met Ty which, if you didn't already know, was life changing.

But 8 years have gone by since then. A move to New York, 2 kids, a marriage, 4 houses and a lot of love I am at Chapter 33.

And still I have so much that I want to accomplish. Quite a few things that have been sitting on that back burner waiting for the day that I say, I'm ready. And I'm ready to mark some things off of my life list. I started a notebook of things I want to do and also things that are important to me. I also made a list of all the things that I have accomplished from 32-33. When I write it all down, it becomes so much more meaningful and purposeful. But that's how I am. If you ask me to speak about something, it comes out all sorts of nonsense and rambling. Let me put it down in words and it's all clear to me.

I am so thankful for another chapter to add to my life. So many people get sad or down about turning another year older. I have to honestly say that it doesn't bother me. I am relishing in the fact that my 30's are some of my best years yet. Of course it's not as stress-free as when I was 8 but hey, what can you do? Ive been asked a lot if we want more children or if they are in the future for us. Here's my answer to that. We are a perfect family of four and we seem to be content with all of that. Since I was a little girl, I have always wanted to adopt a baby. I feel that if we ever decided to expand our family, we would explore this option. Scarlett is adamant that our family isn't finished so who knows....

We never know what the future will bring, right? All I know is that I am enjoying every second of this new year. I have a happy, healthy kids, a loving husband and lots of to-do's to check off.....what more could I want? Hey 33, you're not so bad. Here's to another chapter in the book of Lauren Rebecca!!
