another year gone by

So yesterday I turned 17. It feels like a huge jump to go from 16 to 17. I don't know why. Maybe it is all the changes that are just around the corner. Graduation. College. Such things that I knew would happen, but didn't become a reality to me until a couple of month ago.

When I was little it seemed to take forever to get to my birthday. I so badly wanted to get another year under my belt so that I could be like to big kids. Now I am a big kid. It is funny to be on the other side of that now, and to look back and see what I was an who I am now. There is more change that you basic growing. I have changes. I have learned. I also know that I have a lot more to learn.

Life is flying by so fast now. I wish I had a button that could make things go in slow motion.

It was a wonderful day. I got to see an aunt that I have not seen in 5 years. and I played games with my family. Overall a very nice day. I now have a spray bottle that I can use when I cut hair.



  1. Oh sweetheart, you have no idea (yet) just how incredibly fast life flies. I could have sworn you were just born yesterday. I am so proud of the woman you are becoming!

  2. Happy Birthday! I hope that you had a lovely day :)

  3. Happy Belated 17th Birthday, Elizabeth!

    (sorry for the late comment, but I hope you've had a wonderful, blessed day!)
