Birthday Portraits: Celebrating Life
I’m Not Adulting, I Only Just Turned 37!
If you read my post from last week I Am Not Adulting, I’m Only Turning 37, you already know my thoughts on adulting, and getting ‘young’. I never really thought about making my age public…like never! I used to think people would immediately judge me when their calculations made them realize that I was a teenage mom. People can be cruel, they can say things. But gone are the years when it even mattered to me! I’m proud of my age, of what I’m accomplishing as a mom and as a person. Being past 30 not only has given me more reasons to live life to the fullest, but years have also taught me that every day is a gift, and the good we do for others and how we react to life is really what matters most. As for me, I'll always be myself, young at heart, joyful, and as my youngest son calls me a ‘childish mom’!
Wekiva Springs Portrait Session
I celebrated this year with my first birthday portraits as a ‘young adult’ (Ja!) and they were the best thing I could’ve done. The reason being is that all these images were taken by my oldest son! Far from being just pretty pictures, these are wonderful, timeless memories. We laughed, had fun, and cherished every minute of it. Which is why this is so meaningful to me! Being a nature person, and being so lucky to have gorgeous nature spots near home, I chose to have the photoshoot at Wekiva Springs State Park. I love Wekiva Springs! It’s filled with all kinds of prettiness!
And with this, I say hello to another year of being my own geekiest self 🥂
p.s. If you look at my laughing shots, you’ll understand why you should never make me laugh while I’m driving! I won’t see anything 🙈 lol
