it’s funny how when people stop asking you how old you are, how old you are stops being an issue. when you’re not dating, or trying to get into clubs, or making small talk with newly-met people your age never comes up.
i turned 29 three days ago and it was very much a non-event. i had a very lovely day with my wife but the ‘turning another year older’ thing was really not an issue. not that i’ve ever made a ‘by the time i’m 30 i want to be…’ list, but life is pretty much as perfect as it could be at 29. i have a wonderful wife, we have a fantastic home which we own, we have a great car, i have a career i love and in just 11 more weeks our home will welcome a little one and our family will be perfect. this was a great year and i look forward to the next.
