I have to say even though I keep joking about being so old now (I turned 29 on Jan 19th), I actually feel better than I ever have and am even more excited about the years to come. I use to think that was something people said to make themselves feel better about “getting old” (LOL!), but now I’m realizing it’s actually true… A few nights ago me & two of my girlfriends, who I live with, climbed up on the roof of our house with blankets and a bottle of Rose’, and just sat together watching the sun set. Our house is downtown, on the east side of Santa Barbara, and from our roof you can see the Riviera, & all it’s beautiful homes adorning the hillside behind us, and in front, the whole city, harbor & ocean expanding out to the Channel Islands that frame the horizon. To say we are lucky is a gross understatement; We are beyond blessed to get to experience this beauty every day.
As my girlfriends & I sat there watching the sun set, painting bright orange & yellow across the sky, I realized this is it; It doesn’t get better than this. I get to share the best part of my life with two people I love. I wish this for everyone because this is what life is truly made of… And that’s honestly the best part about getting “old,” you begin to realize it really is the little things in life that matter most, and being able to appreciate them is what true happiness is all about.
