Today I'm 27

Today I'm 27.

So, happy birthday to me!

Here's a fun fact: I share this day with my nephew, Liam and my second-cousin, Ara.  I'm pretty sure that by some point in the day, I will also share it with my friend Jayme's new baby boy, Coy.

It's weird to think that I am inching closer and closer to my 30's and further and further away from my 20's, but it doesn't really bother me.  This birthday is actually pretty special for two reasons.

[1] It's my last birthday as a non-Mama*.

*Some may argue that being pregnant makes me a Mama already, but for arguments sake - let's just go with it.

[2] I am turning the same age that my mom was when she had me.

Momma - Pregnant with me in 1985; Lou - Pregnant with baby boy in 2012

Pretty special, eh?

Mom put a sweet little diddy on Facebook about us being the same age with our first babies (amongst other wonderful things) and failed to warn me of it's tear-inducing contents.

Thanks, Mom.

I hope my 27th year will be as special as I think - full of love, laughter, new experiences (and challenges), and a deeper appreciation for the little things.

Take Luck,


  1. That's the sweetest thing ever! Happy Birthday, Lauren, mama-to-be! I'm guessing 27 will be your best year yet. <3

  2. Happy Birthday, Lauren! Your mom's FB tribute touched my heart, too. Exciting times are ahead of you and Ryan...make sure to treasure every moment!

  3. Happy Birthday, Lauren!

    We went to HS together, don't know if you remember me! :) It's such a weird feeling that we are almost 30.. I feel like I'm still in my early 20's lol.

    Congrats on Baby Peters :)

    Have a wonderful birthday, you deserve the best!
