Oh hey, loves! Had to catch y’all before March got out of here. Better late than never right? But this month has been superrrrr busy for me, but I’m so thankful! If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know that I always do a reflective blog post before/after my birthday to share my thoughts and heart as I go into a new age. This year is the big 2-9, yep I’m a whole 29 years old. Don’t worry, I can’t believe it myself. I’m officially in my last year of my 20’s, WHERE does the time go?! But I haven’t felt this different in a new age in a very long time. I’m preparing myself for everything that it headed my way and all that 29 will bring forth! And don’t worry, I’ll be taking you guys along for the ride! 29 is about to be everything, though. I feel it and I’m claiming it! You’re looking at a preview of my glow up! So here’s to 29 and being fine as wine!! *raises invisible champagne glass*
And can we get into me trying to model okay? LOL. Nah but if you know me, you know that being behind my own camera comes with ease. Getting behind someone else’s? Not my fav. It’s the weirdest thing, I know. But my girl Alaina [@southlumephoto on IG] brought it out of ya girl! I had so much fun shooting with her this day, she captured the simplicity of my style in such cute areas. She really captured my glow, and brought THE best vibes okay! She’s super sweet so book her for your lifestyle shoots, birthday shoots, baby shoots, everything! She’s trying to get her feet wet in these Dallas streets!
I remember how fearful of the unknown I was last year turning 28. This year, I have so much more confidence in both who AND where I am in life. Ever just feel a shift in everything around you? Usually new seasons really do that for me. I just have a different kind of peace and contentment, getting better with accepting where things are and knowing that it’s all a part of God’s plan. His timing, not mine. And don’t get me wrong, the journey is still trying and I definitely have my days. But I can look back and see how I have evolved the last year. The number one thing I told myself this time last year, was that I would not be in the same place mentally, physically, spiritually or financially a year from then. I see the growth and change in every single area, and I can only thank God. And I’m constantly evolving, continuously growing and improving to become the best version of myself.
I have so many things to be grateful for this year. 2021 is on the move, but I’ll never be too busy to stop and recognize my blessings. I’ve survived an entire year of a pandemic, and never had the virus thankfully. I was blessed to see another birthday, and celebrate it in an amazing way. My business is picking back up, my family is safe and healthy, I’m just beyond thankful. This birthday is pretty simple and straight to the point! What’s meant for me will always be just that and I’m just trusting in the journey that God has me on, all while wearing stylish outfits and cute shoes!
At this place in my life, I’m at peace because I trust God. I know that if something doesn’t work out, it’s because He has something even better. I’ve talked before about my ages feeling as though they have themes. 29 is about to be the year of implementation and execution. It’s the year things are put into motion and I reach my full potential. He’s been preparing me this far for so much, and I feel that for 29 it’s all about to blossom and bloom! I’m claiming all of these things over myself, and I pray you’re doing the same for yourself this year despite how it looks right now. God is so faithful!
Thank you all for the support and love, and embarking on this crazy journey with me. I’m walking into 29 like…
