We are Wanderers // Turning Twenty Six

My apologies for my two week hiatus; things have been a bit crazy here, between arriving home from our trip, my birthday, and more.  I try very hard to keep ahead on this blog, but sometimes there just are
not enough hours or free days in the week. But there are lots of exciting things I have to share with you ahead, I promise.

Last week I had my twenty-sixth birthday.  I don't know how you're supposed to feel when you turn twenty six, but I still feel like I'm twenty three.  I often find myself forgetting my age and telling people I'm 3-5 years younger than I am — completely by mistake.  I'm not trying to pull wool over people's eyes or anything, I just genuinely forget.  And then I have to be like, no wait that's actually not true… I'm actually four years older than that…?

It might be because I work with a lot of young people, or it could be because I took an early interest in home furnishings and entertaining guests (let's flashback to 18 year old lindsay hosting a sit down dinner party, shall we?).  Whatever the reason, I guess its not so bad a thing.  One thing that is relatively new in my adult life though, is this travel bug I've been bit by in the past year or so.  Who knew?  I'd always thought travel didn't really appeal to me, and now here we are, a wanderer at heart.

Suddenly I want to see so much of the world, because its so different than what's in my own backyard. Now I  want to see what's around that next bend in the forest, or what this strange species of bug is.  I want to see all that the world has to offer, all the amazing creatures living in it, and all the strange formations the Earth takes on, from forests to mountains, to crab shacks by the ocean.

and I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings.
