The First Day

     This was the first day of the rest of my life; just being a year older. It's funny, you always think that it will feel much different to turn "that age" but really, the difference is only you realizing the responsibility that you have now.
Huh, thinking about the possibilities of my future, the responsibilities, and the wonderful ways in which God will work has just got me very... thoughtful; prayerful. 
Whelp, later y'all:)



PS: I did an interview of sorts over at Erin's awesome blog: http://writedreamrunsing.blogspot.com/2013/05/tell-me-eli.html
Take a little look if you feel so inclined:)

I like your first sentence; it sorta made me look twice! I'll be doin' the same thing in a monthish. (getting older that is, not looking twice! =P)
Do you all really have that much snow still? =/

Oh Eli, your commments just make my day!! =D
Thanks for your critique; you were the only one that took the bait! I knew I liked the first window picture better, but I couldn't put my finger on WHY exactly...then BAM! The flowers DO seem to grow around it! =D
Oooh, just you wait, 'cause I'm posting Sunny pictures on Wed!
Furthermore, I love your new- erm, header, and your about me page: especially the picture of you with your camera (you are so cute!), and you with your sister (That is totally epic) aaaaand, your page is way more organized than mine and I just got ideas from it. =)

P.s. And, so as to not write a book on here, I replied on my blog.

When you are 50 you will still feel like you do now until you look in the mirror and you will wonder who that old woman is. :)

Irene said...
