Carolyn Gets Older in New Zealand

Today is my 27th birthday, which I've been told bumps me from my fun and carefree "mid-20's" to my old and worrisome "late-20's". While living in a van in New Zealand hardly fills my life with anxiety, I still can't escape from the word "old" just based on the fact that I've been around since the early 80's...that's almost vintage!

So I hadn't exactly been looking forward to this day, but then I came across a touching letter that was written to me 23 years ago.
Well that proves it! I'm not old! If I were, I'd be living somewhere in Alabama married to my preschool boyfriend, Luke. Whew, that was a close one.

See ya tomorrow, I'm off to enjoy my youth!

Oh and before I go - it's my birthday so I can do whatever I want.

Age: older than you think

  3. Luke had excellent penmanship for such a young fellow.

  4. i think i might have slept with him last night??!?!?!?!? hahahahah happy birthday again!

  5. I don't actually think this letter was to you. Looks like little Lukey loved someone named "Carovn"
