am a fan of revamping and rebranding. just ordered new business cards! am pretty excited.
am a fan of writing down creative ideas that must await patiently on the back burner.

do tell, what do (did) you love about being in your twenties? please tell me the fun has just begun.

happy friday, everyone.

Jamie said...

I'm now a fan of a few more of these things, thanks for the heads up.

I loved my 20's, but honestly, they were nothing compared to the bliss I found in my 30's.

Lee Currie said...

My 20's were wonderful, but nothing beats being in my mid-40s. Gets better and better each year! The best is (indeed) yet to come :) Enjoy!

Twenties were fine, but once you get to your 30s? You become much more aware and yourself. It's a crazy phenomenon that actually holds true.

Hannah said...

Love your fan lists. So many pretty things in one place. Your cookies look heavenly.

Am nervous about entering my thirties as well. Must enjoy my last 2 years.

Kate @ Our Best Bites said...

Awww, thanks for the shout out. And I found a few new things to be a fan of from your list. :)

Kathleen said...

I was nervous about entering my 30s, but woke up on my 30th birthday thrilled and elated. The 20s are about finding yourself and your way in the world. The 30s are about knowing yourself and celebrating that! (and growing still, of course). Have no hesitation nor fear-- the 30s are wonderful!!!

Thanks for the shout out Mart!

Hope your b-day is fabulous.

I have to agree with the Boden autumn collection. I just bought two great shirts from them.

summer said...

ooh la la. another marvelous list! these are always something i look forward to.

okay, that anchor song. already played like 10 times. love it. thank you, marta! i was listening to some of her stuff a few weeks ago, but i had never heard this perfect song before. yay.

and rummeybears! i was sucked in.

happy weekend with company, miss marta!

Johanna said...

I hope you have a fabulous birthday Marta. Did you know that we share the same birthday and the same age! That makes me like you even more (even though I would like you just the same no matter what).
So happy birthday to us and to Will Smith :O)

"Did you know that I share a birthday with Marta from Marta Writes? I think that makes my love for her that much more special. Oh and also I share a birthday with Will Smith, my childhood crush. Just thought I'd share that with you. "

i'm 27 and i'm wishing i could just fast forward to 30 where i will be set in a career and be able to build my family. right now, it's a lot of education and bills. i just want to start my career, create our family and build a home. but to answer the question, i love that they're almost over. i love that during my educational experiences i have been able to make some amazing friends and learn several life lessons. undergrad is also where i met my fiance and grad school is where we started dating. i wouldnt trade those years for the life of me, but i'd like to fast forward to the point in life where we have a house, job and little one.

You are just starting the fun---I didn't even have you until I was 32!

Phoenix Peacock said...

mmm. chocolate chip cookies. cutest thing = today I had to "teach" my 30 year old friend how to make them, she had NEVER made cookies from scratch in her life - hard to believe, I know. She was so proud of herself!

alli/hooray said...

Oh yes, chocolate chip cookies and the latest Boden catalog - love!

PS. thanks for your sweet message yesterday + for including my little blog in your list. Nice to meet you!

mandiegirl said...

I still have a little less than 2 years left, & though I certainly don't want to wish time away, I'm not against turning 30. ;) I know that there will be a lot of exciting things in the next decade of my life- babies, buying our first home, my hubby finishing 3 degrees & I'll (hopefully) get to stay home with those future babes! Until then, I'll find & make my own joy. Happy birthday Marta!

Manda said...

I'm a fan of your blog! And your mom's! You've inspired me to organize my craft room. I recently turned 29; I think I'll be fine with turning 30. Forty sounds a lot older, though.

Lisa from Toronto said...

Oh Marta -- I don't think I've ever commented, but have to say, your 30s will be amazing. It's been my favorite decade so far! Thanks for all the joy you've brought to my life with your writing and your optimism.
