when I'll be 25

I know it's been forever. I admit my laptop and I are not having quality time lately, which is good (don't you think?). I am always out, living the life. It made me remember this conversation my mom and dad had while I was preparing to go out:

Dad to my mom: It's better if she'll (referring to me) marry young, maybe a year from now, so that we still have strong knees to run around with our grandchildren.

Mom to my dad: No. It's too young. Maybe when she's 25 (said in a way for me to hear)...

Me: *took my purse on my way out trying to ignore their ridiculous effort of deciding my marrying age for me*

Mom to me: Where are you going?

Me: Enjoying the remaining 2 years and 2 months of being single.

(at Central Park, chillin' with my friend)

There's just one thing I can say: 
I'm single, a guy should be pretty amazing to change that. :)

I love what you said. and i think single means fabulous. i always feel single tho i have amazing boyfriend now. relationships come and go -only one relationship is for the rest of the life and is with yourself. I think all of us need to cherish that relationship more.

very cute post about your parents having a conversation about you getting married. yup, enjoy the single life while you're still young. :)

i love, LOVE your cute floral dress. i like how you added the belt with the ruffles too. :)

thanks for the compliment on my son's pic. he probably must be talking to a client on the phone about money investments. hehe... all i know is that he was really enjoying the CEO look. lol. :D

followed the blog you and your friend made, btw. i'm really enjoying it and that guy at starbucks is really cute. wish we had more of him in california. ;D

take care. :)
