i’m the birthday girl!

today is my 24th birthday and i have my party pants[dress] on! life is so silly and weird because you just keep getting older but never really feel any differently. i still feel like i am 5 years old, although i live with my boyfriend and work to support myself and do all of the things that adults do. i think that “life” just happens so gradually that you hardly even notice the passage of time.
my grandpa david always used to say “IM 21 BABY” .. til the day he died. as i get a little older, i am beginning to understand the depth to his phrase. in my mind, i will never age!
party dress: for sale in my store
bag: won from icandy
shoe: swedish hasbeens
sunnies: my grandma’s
still feeling ick, but still going to play princess.. last night matt taught me how to take big pills πŸ™‚
