Although this might be true I'm embracing 27 today with open arms and excitement for the year ahead. It's slightly scary to think I'm getting closer to 30 (typing that number was a little difficult), but age is really just a number. After receiving this quote in my inbox yesterday to "laugh like you're 10, party like you're 20, travel like you're 30, think like you're 40, advise like you're 50, care like you're 60, and love like you're 70" I realized it's important to embrace each stage of life regardless of where you are.




  1. yay for number 9! you should come again :)

    happy birthday, you are so amazing!

  2. Happy birthday! Sounds like a great year indeed, and I love that quote - definitely will refer back to that when I turn 29 this summer :)

  3. Happy Birthday!!! Don't stress about 30! I've been 30 since October and it's been the best year by far! :) And, you have a few years :)

  4. I'm so flattered The Urbaness made your list! Happy birthday, Sarah! I hope this year brings lots of love, happiness, and adventure. - Lizzie & The Urbaness
