  1. #17, word. up. sister. I’m turning 30 this year, and am *not* really sad to say good bye to my 20’s yet. Although I hear it makes online dating a little tougher ;)

    Also: I love (lovelove!) this look. Those shorts are fab! Tried to snag a pair myself, but they’re sold out online.

  2. This year (my 27th) is officially the year of “never say never”…..I feel like I’ve learned the most about myself in the past 2-3 years. Currently training for a 1/2 marathon. I’m pretty sure that once in my life I said I would never run over a mile.
    Also, I do prefer flats to heels. They just make my aging feet feel so good!!!

  3. Love this! I just turned 28 (yesterday!), and I feel like I should write my own – good reminder to notice/appreciate the growth and maturity and change that comes with getting older when I’m feeling a little iffy about that new 28 number… (And my mom will love hearing that I now believe she was always right – especially as one of her favorite phrases to use on us was always “never say never”.)

  4. This is a great list and I can relate to it very well. When I was younger my grandmother used to tell me to be a lawyer. I said that sounded really boring. Now I’m 30 and work in the law field. Go figure. I love your shorts. In fact, it was YOU that inspired me to buy them. I wore them very recently, in fact, on Monday and did a post. Thanks!

  5. Thanks for admitting to finding grey hairs before you’re 30. I found some too, and I felt like the only one!

  6. Great post! I love 16 – my mom was right about regretting the tattoo I got when I was 18, but I’ll never tell her :-)

  7. I agree 100% with more of those points than I’d like to admit. {Whatever happened to Eric and Julie Season 1??}

    Those shorts. Exactly something I’ve been yearning for. Love this head to toe.
