Jennifer Blake: twenty-four.


May 27, 2013

Today I am 24.

Today I am writing this post curled up in bed while Aaron still sleeps, on my actual birthday.

Today I get to reflect on where I am, where we are and how far we have come since my 23rd birthday a year ago. So much has changed since last year.

Today I will soak up a relaxing day off with my amazing husband, I am so grateful for the days I get to spend with him.

Today I will ignore the mess around our apartment and really try to give myself a day off. Who cares there is laundry and dishes to be done, I say a birthday is a good day to forget about it.

Today I will plan, plot, dream, and cultivate some goals for my 24th year.

Today I will be thankful for my friends and family who have made my life amazing and special.

Today I will indulge in some cake, watch one too many episodes of Arrested Development, and take a trip to Target to wander.

Today I will focus on the here and now, this moment, this day.

Today I am happy to welcome 24 with open arms.


  1. Happy Birthday, Jennifer! Treat yourself to something nice for sure. I know it wont be hard at all to find some great girly stuff at Target.

  2. Happy Birthday! I hope you had a great day of relaxation!
