We Are of Age

It is official -- we are of that age, the age where people start taking their careers seriously, start thinking about buying homes and start getting engaged! A close friend (who shall remain un-named so that I don't unintentionally steal her thunder) just called to tell me her big news. Well, first she said she had some good news, and after some hesitation I figured, "Ellen was just talking about your blog on her show!" was a bit of a long shot so I said the next thing that pops into my head whenever someone asks me to guess something.

"You're getting married?" I asked.
"Yes!" she said.

I was just about to say the second thing that always pops into my head ("You're pregnant!") when I digested what she said. Immediately there were chills and goosebumps, the good kind, even better than the R.L. Stine kind.

She is the first close friend of mine to be endowed with a left ring finger bauble, and I couldn't be happier for her. But what a novel feeling it is to realize that everyone is seriously growing up, these same people who I used to stay up late in college with, eating pie and watching marathon episodes of The Gilmore Girls.

Congratulations, my dear!

it's the law of universe.. imagine if you are forever young, and your friends are already 50++ and you still want to do all sorts of things.

me tooooo! Im new to your blog (Hi, Im lisa) so I dont know much about you yet....but Im 26 and this is what my life is all about right now. Realizing Im too old for certain things and places, watching my friends make their first, sometimes second mistake, everyone is procreating and getting commited....its going to be a crazy decade of love, heart ache, and crying babies.

I miss the Gilmore Girls. It is weird when you and your friends all start having families. Then try having two kids, then you really feel old and like one of the grown-up families out there.
