my mom told me that when i was only a few weeks old, she handed me to her friend ralph and he looked at me and said "she's an old soul"  and every now and then i feel that way... and i just like the way it sounds.....

so it is the eve of my 29th birthday and i'm feeling quite introspective.
i think i have learned more about myself this past year than in the 28 years before that combined.

and this is what i think about getting older:
in my opinion, it sure as heck beats the alternative!!
why do people not want to get older???  if we're lucky, we will get really old.
so i am becoming quite okay with embracing every age and going with it. 
gray hairs and eye wrinkles, just proof of some seriously good livin' (yes i dye my hair and use eye cream, so what)

some Abbey stuff:
-i could eat asian food for the rest of my life and be okay with it
-i love natural remedies and i aspire to be more holistic everyday
-i have a strange obsession with buying magazines
-i love kimchi
-i don't watch much t.v.
-photography, sewing and writing are my passions
-i love to cook, but mostly when i have unlimited time and money to prepare a meal
-i don't like really sweet things (except chocolate cake)
-i have very strange toes
-i love the smell of nordstroms and pottery barn
-i love my family more than anything in the world
-i love talking
-i need to listen more
-i want to learn how to sing and how to play the guitar
-i use olive oil to take off my eye make up
-i am a procrastinator, but working on it
-i love paris and NEED a chocolate croissant right now!!
-i hate soda
-the song "somewhere over the rainbow" makes me cry
-i want to go to india and ride an elephant
-i'm afraid of flying, but do it anyways
-i love love love life!!!

so heres to my 30th year, i have many expectations for you!!!  I have a good feeling about this one.
