In Utah where most of the LDS girls get married by the age of 23, a few of my past birthdays haven't exactly felt like celebrations since I was single and the pressure to find my "someone" increasingly mounted. Birthdays usually seemed more like "reminders" - to get married sooner than later - than fun. I'm kinda excited about my birthday this year - not because of all the presents or the crown I will indefinitely wear all day, but because of what I already have in my life.
This year is different. Since I knocked out marriage and a baby in one year, I have no more anxiety about the future. Only excitement. Who knew I'd love being a parent or a wife so much? This year, I feel good about who I have become and where my life is headed. No more questions or pressure, just my birthday. It's about time, too!
