another year gone by...


today...
this little girl turns 19.

i am still in disbelief of sorts that another year has gone by, and i can no longer say that i am eighteen. that whole chapter of my life is gone for good. i am trying to fully grasp the idea of being nineteen... one year older to legitimate, scary adulthood, and one year further away from that glorious childhood i cherish so much. i feel as if i have done so little in my nineteen years of life, but i suppose i (hopefully) have at least a good fifty years to make up for that-- i've gotta get going! and though i feel entirely too immature to be one year away from the big 2-0, i suppose it's okay to remain a child at heart. for one more year, at least!

¡feliz cumpleaños, a mi!

also to note: a little preview of how i spent the last weeks of my eighteenth year of life.
i love prague.
i love mi familia.
i love my friends.
i love life.

Happy birthday, you gorgeous girl. By the way, that picture of you as a kid is absolutely adorable.
You worded this rather well...it is sort of strange and intimidating to know that this time next year, we won't be teenagers anymore. Inching closer and closer to real "adulthood." Creepy thought. BUT, hang in there, and we'll all get through it together!
Glad you're having such a great time in Europe!! What a magical place to celebrate your birthday in.

I have to agree that you were a very cute baby! You share a birthday with my dad so I'll probably always remember it. Besides that I have facebook to remind me... :D Happy birthday, again!
