Twenty Seven

April 11, 2013

Today, I have entered my late twenties, and I couldn’t be happier. If I was so content on my last birthday, this one finds me even more so. The last year has been wonderful, full of adventure and everyday happiness and life-altering news. I fully expect the coming year to be just as rich; there is a major change on my horizon, a new adventure or two in store (I’m eyeing Ecuador, juggling calendars to make sure I can visit while the humpback whales winter off its Pacific coast), and in between there are sure to be lots of quiet, beautiful days to indulge my curiosities and cultivate my hobbies. I feel so lucky, leading such a charmed life, and the friends and connections I’ve made with other bloggers are an essential part of that. I’ve had so many thought-provoking and opinion-forming discussions over the years I’ve been blogging that have helped make me the woman I am today, a woman I’m quite fond of. Thank you all.

As the cherry on top, I’m once again an odd number! Twenty seven has a lovely ring to it, don’t you think?

P.S.: My hands have been having a bit more trouble this last week, which is why I haven’t been around much in comments or e-mails. I expect a few more days of rest will get them back to their usual selves, but until that happens I’ll continue to be scarce.

    happy birthday!!!! I turned 29 in December and I agree about the odd number. It’s got a nice ring to it. :)

    Oh Eva! Happy birthday to you. Mine was last week and we are the same age, well plus my additional ten ;-) Hope your birthday has been wonderful!

    Happy Birthday Eva! I’m a regular reader but don’t always comment. Ahhh, 27! You are so young. :) I will be turning 37 soon so I suppose I’m about to enter my “late 30’s”–yikes!. Keep up the good blogging work!

    Happy Birthday, Eva! I hope you have a fantastic day and 27th year!

    Happy birthday! I just entered the last year of my late twenties, and I have to say it’s been an eventful but positive period. Wishing you all the best as you begin to experience it!

    Happy birthday to you. I hope you’re feeling better soon, too.

    Happiest of birthdays!

    Welcome to 27! It has been a wonderful year (so far) for me, so I hope it will be amazing for you as well! :)

    Take care of yourself. At some point, I’d love to talk with you about your treatment. I know we’ve chatted about my RA before, but since the Lupus diagnosis, I’d love to talk to someone again. :)

    Happy birthday, Eva! I am finding 27 pretty darn wonderful and am sure it will be just as great an age for you – though no where near as good as all the years to come!

  12. April 11, 2013 9:03 pm

    Happy birthday dear Eva! May 27 be the best so far. Feel better!

  13. April 11, 2013 9:24 pm

    Happy birthday! 27 is a great age & I can’t wait to see what you do with it! Very excited to get a hint about your upcoming adventures, so I wish you a year full of great travel & great books! :D

    Wishing you the happiest of birthdays and a wonderful 27th year. I hardly recall what that was like but have a hazy memory of my late twenties as entirely wonderful ;) Glad to hear you have some exciting things to look forward to this year, too!

    Oh sweetie, what a truly lovely photo of you!!! I hope your birthday weekend continues to bring you lots of fun and relaxation! And I agree–27 does have a nice ring to it. (Though it’s been such I long time ago since I lived it that I don’t really remember how it felt. :P )

    Happy belated birthday!

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
