Birthday Talk: What was your favourite age so far?

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Today at 1:43 pm I'm turning a whopping 29! (What time were you born?). To be honest, I don't pay much attention to age itself. Balazs always says that I'm ageless. I look pretty much the same since my teens (just with a few little eye wrinkles by now) and that can create a few amusing situations like the recent one when a cinema clerk has mistaken Balazs and I for uni students :) Hilarious!
 
Anyhow, a few days ago a friend asked me what was my favourite age so far and without a doubt this was the year! It just felt right. In the past 12 months I had endless fun with my Balazs who always knows how I feel just after looking in my eyes, our dogs who never let me sleep-in, friends who make delicious pasta dishes, our next door neighbour who endlessly treats us to homemade doughnuts and you all, my amazing readers who make me laugh out loud, melt my heart with beautiful comments, get me inspired and make me feel like a part of this crazy but totally amazing blogging family! I'd love to beam myself though the screen this morning and give you all a huge kiss!

So, darlings, I'd love to know: what was your favourite age so far? A year that really rocked your socks off! Let's chat, shall we? xo

P.S: I'm going to be away for the rest of the day celebrating and having a dinner in our favourite sushi place. See you tomorrow!
P.P.S: Those might come in handy by tomorrow (giggle).

to answer your question: I guess my favorite time was during my college - everything seemed possible and life was still easy! but i actually like whatever stage i am in, it is all about finding the right way and explore the world :)
happy birthday diana!!!

Happy Birthday Diana!
I don't really care about age either-I don't think anyone should- as long as you are happy and healthy :)

*insert happy birthday song*

i LOVE being 31 - and i LOVED being 30 .. i dunno - i think age is a number - it's a matter of feeling - everyone thinks i'm 16 - so i mean i could care less

Celebrate! 29 is the golden age that we all pretend to be!...i loved being young....but i like being old too....Every age has it's benefits and being happy with where you are is so important....life really does keep getting better....but I really loved being 19 and traveling solo around the world....

Happy birthday! So far, I've liked the age I am the most. As I mature I grow happier in general.

Samantha said...

Happy Birthday! I'm not sure that I have a favorite I've. Every year had brought its own up and downs and I have to be grateful for all of it.

Best wishes for the year to come!

happy birthday dear, dear friend! :) lucky you with your teenage face!
i would have to say the year i studied abroad was the most fun year. this past year i felt the most serene and my senior year of high school was where i had the most growth. :) happy day!

bron @ baby space said...

aw happy birthday lady!!!! i hope its a great one!
and i love that you know what time you were born, i was born at 3:31 in the morning! and i'd have to say that 24 is turning out pretty well so far, but 21 was pretty great too. it was the year that i lived in europe, got together with my boyfriend and started college, defiantly a pretty memorable year!

xx katie

Tara @ Haute Lunch said...

Happy Birthday to you my dear! I hope you enjoy your special day! I couldn't pick a favorite birthday (I'd have better luck picking a least favorite- I usually enjoy them all). Love the old photos of you and your family! Your mother is so lovely!

happy birthday!

Laura *You Stir Me* said...

ooo happy 29th! I've been 29 for three weeks so far and it's not so bad. I think my favorite year thus far was last year (28th) because I got engaged and planned a fun lil' wedding with my friends and family. Corny. Get away from the computer and enjoy the rest of your day - woo hoo!

Sara Szatmary said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!This past year (24) has been my best. I feel like life just keeps getting better. That feeling, in and of itself, is the best gift ever.

Happy Birthday!
My current age is always my favorite but my least favorite age is always the next one ahead. I love my life but the thought of getting older gives me chills.

Alexa said...

Happy Birthday Diana! Just wait till next year...ha. I'm kidding 30 is just the first anniversary of your 29th year. At least that's what I tell myself. I don't think I have a favorite age...although the college years were pretty unforgettable! Have a lovely day!

happy happy birthday! i hope you enjoy this year as much as you have the last! i'd say my fave age was somewhere around 20. i loved being in university and had so much fun that year after truly figuring out who i was. the last couple years have been pretty darn good too!

Amy said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
Thanks for making our year so fun by sharing your wonderful blog here.
I can say hands down that it was the one before the baby, I think 33.
It seriously was the best day ever
and we played games and did things as if I was reliving age 7.
Lollipops and hopscotch, cupcakes and jump ropes oh it was so much fun.
I hope you have a great one...hmm I have no idea what time I was born :(

Happy Happy day to you lovely lady. 29 is so young! Wishing you a day full of sweetness - just like you!

I am loving my 40's. Finally have time and $$ to enjoy some time off and travel. The kids are so much more enjoyable. I find myself not caring much about how I look to others and I am more open to everyones journeys and feelings. I focus a bit more time on my activities (still not alot-haha) and I know what I want.

demie said...

of course now! 39 today tomorrow. always the present time, no matter how difficult or unpleasant or hard. my favourite age is now. always ; )

Melisande said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRETTY LADY!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! I think my favorite age so far has been 27 but 28 is proving to be quite okay as well! Hope your day is most excellent!

Happy Birthday!
My favorite age has not come yet... lol.

dlugadrogadodomu said...

Happy birthday!
I've always liked my current age. I thought, that being 18 is great. Then 19.20, etc...Now I think being 26 is even better. So - every age is good when you can see bright sides of life!

Anna said...

Happy birthday!
Meh, I haven't really had an age that I've really loved. 15 was alright though.

Amber Blue Bird said...

Monica from Hola!design said...

Happy birthday!!! Sending you hugs and kisses.

I'm really enjoying my age (29) and I'm actually exciting about turning 30. I'm so glad I'm done with the teenage years...

Hope you had the best birthday yet!

Christianna said...

HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

I love your blog so much, and am glad we are blog friends! Hope this is a wonderful day!

Last year when I was 22 was fairly epic. 23 has had it's ups and downs and I'm only a month in, but I have a good feeling about it!

Stephanie said...

Happy birthday!!!

I don't think I could pick a favorite age to be. I've been pretty happy with whatever age I am at the time. :-)

Jess said...

Happy Birthday! Once I turned 21, I stopped keeping track of my birthdays. It's hard to remember sometimes in my "old" age!

Diana said...

i have to say my college years were pretty fun! happy birthday to youuuuu!

Elisa said...

Happy Birthday Diana! another Leo I see. LOL (mine is on sunday)

to answer your question: my least favorite was when I turned 25. ( I was still in college, not sure what direction I was heading,) But I guess it all turned out just like it was suppose to be. Now age is no big deal to me. I try to cherish each day, every day.

Enjoy your dinner, sushi yum!

Diana Mieczan said...

Aww..thank you for all the sweet Birthday wishes! You all made my day:) xo

Diana Mieczan said...

Happy Birthday!!! I'm sorry I missed it yesterday! I hope you had a fabulous celebration that will take you through the weekend! xo

Steph said...

Happy birthday on the real entry!

I was born at 6:02am. My favorite age so far I think was 23. That was when I moved to London with no job, no friends, no house, no nothing and I ended the year with all of that and more and it turned out to be one of the most amazing years of my life. I met so many people from all over the world and really felt a great sense of independence.

My second favorite age was 20, when I studied abroad in London and got to travel all over Europe - a new country every few weeks for four months.

And apart from that, I enjoyed 13 because I had a really tight-knit group of friends that year and my first boyfriend.

Diana Mieczan said...

I adore your comment, Steph! It had to be so fun to travel all over Europe and stay in different countries every few weeks. Which european city do you like the most?

Liesl said...

Happy, Happy Birthday, Diana!!! I was born at 11:31PM and turn the big...wait for it...32 on August 17th! Eeek! :) Love the idea of thinking about my favorite age or birthday...my sweet 16 was a wonderful one when I got to go into NYC with a few close friends to the Fashion Café when it existed, but most were wonderful growing up and I always had a theme and my parents made them so special! I hope yours has been FABULOUS!!!

Liesl :)

Diana Mieczan said...

Happy almost birthday, Liesl and your parents sound so lovely. I adore theme brihday parties:)
