My 2011 Birthday Wish List

So, I'm turning 29 on Friday. Yay! I cannot believe that I'm celebrating the last birthday of my twenties this year! Usually, I get a bit stressed over these types of things, but that feels ridiculous this year. My thirties are going to be AMAZING. There's nothing to fear!

I don't have much of a birthday wish list this year. I have felt so blessed this past year, and I've gotten to do quite a bit of shopping over the last few months... so I'm really not chomping at the bit for any special birthday presents. Obviously, there's always something pretty that I've got my eye on, but I just feel really content with my possessions lately (and I'm MUCH more content with my life as a whole right now too). I have plenty of pretty clothes and nice shoes. I get to go to Portland at the end of the month and to San Francisco TWICE before the year is over. So... I'm good.

With that in mind, this is my wish list for my 29th birthday:

1. excellent health
2. opportunity
3. drive
4. success
5. increased intimacy with everyone i love

For myself, my husband, my family, and my friends.

And maybe a nice pair of yoga pants.


  1. super sweet.

    humbling really.

    best wishes!

  2. Happy birthday! I think five is a good way to say an elusive thing :)

  3. Love your list and hope that 29 is as fun and full of life as you are! Happy Early Birthday!!!

    Liesl :)

  4. i knew i liked you. 1982 was the BEST birth year EVER! i'll be turning the choice age of 29 this fall.

    enjoy the last year of twenties my dear!

  5. Oh! Happy Birthday in advance (I'll probably send you another message on Friday) I hope 29 is the best year yet, and wouldn't it be fun if you got to share your birthday with your little nephew? Cuuteee!
