“I am a Gemini and can adapt to most atmospheres. You get two for the price of one when you are a Gemini.” ~ Karan Johar
Happy first day of June, dear readers! And the start of my birthday month! Which of course means a whole month of festivities, because why, when you get old, should you stick to just one day when you can have a whole week? And when you are approaching thirty, (not just yet peeps, a couple more years.) why not just celebrate the WHOLE flipping month!?!?
Yes, guys this is truly my season and I am reveling in it.
Admittedly, this might sound hypocritical as well as truly Gemini-esque, but I am not one for Astrology. I have no idea what other astrological signs and traits are except that of a Gemini.
And let me tell you, I am a Gemini to my very core. I never realized nor truly embraced it until the last few years. And while some might scoff at Astrology, there really is something to it.
Gemini’s sign is known as the twins Castor and Pollux. They represent the yin and yang, dual personalities. We are both extroverted and introverted, creative and business savvy, talkers as well as listeners, fun and serious. We are a walking contradiction, that first and foremost is always striving for balance. We typically see both sides of an issue (never get into a debate with me, I will talk in circles) as well as the bigger picture and are very fair and reasonable, almost to an annoyance. Despite our sometimes wishy-washy appearance, we are also very Type-A.
I don’t know who this is describing….
A True Gemini
Yup, I am a Gemini in the truest sense of the sign. No wonder I have such a hard time on questionnaires.
Hey admittance is nine tenths the recovery right?
With a Summer birthday, it makes perfect sense as to why I am a mermaid at heart, as well as adore this time of year. This is my happy season, where I flourish and blossom like a dolphin in the open ocean.
Okay now I am just being dramatically corny.
Drama queens aside, I am ridiculously excited for this month and yes, I am even excited to get another year older, but especially wiser. This IS my season.
I haven’t hidden the fact that twenty-seven was a tad tempestuous. And that might be putting it mildly. Break-ups of both the romantic and friendship kind. Mental and physical health, and even the the feeding of my wanderlust soul and career choices were a rattled unpredictable group of conundrums.
And yet, despite all the upheaval and stress, as I approach my twenty-eighth year, I am feeling more confident and certain then I have in a very long time.
While most people make resolutions in the New Year, in true Gemini fashion, I prefer to make them on my birthday. It isn’t just uniquely personal to me, but a true marking of the passing of time and milestones.
Twenty-eight might seem like an obscure number, but then those are usually the ages where life events seem to happen the most, almost like billboards flashing that can not be hidden between more celebratory ages like twenty-one and thirty.
Life isn’t one flat journey, but a series of hills and gullies, mountains and valleys that rise and fall creating a uniquely beautiful landscape. We can choose to stay stuck in the gullies or we can change our perspective and soar over those mountains.
This is our story. This is mine. Some parts are happy, others are sad, but it has all created who I am, and it is up to me to decide WHO I want to be, HOW I want to act, and WHAT I want out of this crazy whirl wind called life.
Each age is a new phase filled with wisdom and it should be celebrated. So I raise a glass not just to all my Gemini twins but also all the June babies out there! Happy birthday and may you celebrate this month to the fullest!
When is your Birthday? Do you identify with your astrological sign? How do you celebrate? How do you feel about getting older?

Wonderful insight and wisdom!
Thanks Mom! <3
Speaking as a 33-going-on-34 year old, being 30 ain’t nothing to fear, love. 28 was an interesting year for me considering my mom had just passed a few months before, so I spent most of it grieving…but eventually things started to get better.
I will say though that birthdays seem less a thing after one turns 21. I’ll still celebrate it by taking the day off, hitting Denny’s for a free breakfast, etc. Or if my B-day happens to be on Black Friday (As it will this year, I believe), shop like a motherfucker.
Congratulations, you’re old enough to be smart about life but young enough that you can still fuck up.
Aaw you look gorge in these pics! Btw how is it June? It feels like May was a day long haha. I’m a summer baby like you, I’m August. Star sign a Leo which my partner says is try as I can be fiery😁😂 xx
Awe thank you sweets! I know right?!?! It has flown by! Yay for being a Summer baby! Haha! That is to funny and I do not believe it! You are so sweet and kind! 🙂 <3
I only get fiery if I’m hangry/someone really deserves it! I do love to be pampered and spoilt as my sign says xx
Oh girl I feel you on the hangry! Watch out! Lol. <3
28! My god. Your whole life is ahead of you, Kate! And if you’re as lucky as I’ve been, it only gets better with each decade. (Well, except for maybe the lower back and the knees; those definitely get worse, lol.) Happy birthday month to you! xx
Hehe thank you so much Heide! You are so sweet! And as I get “older” I really believe that is true! 🙂 LOL. Thank you hun! I hope YOU have an amazing month! <3
Your photos and fashion in this post are beautiful! Please share some of your life wisdom with me x
Awe thank you SO much! Hehe I might just have to make a pst for that! I hope you are having an amazing day! <3
I love that outfit on you!! It’s great that you’re celebrating your birthday all month long and not just on one day 😊 xx
Thank you so much sweets! Right? Why celebrate just one day :p I hope you have a great month! <3
It’s okay exactly!! 😊 xx
Astrology is so complicated. Despite believing I knew a lot about it, I once put on a documentary and realised the amount of in-depth knowledge to learn. I know that you have to look at your rising moon and sun sign together – blah blah. I will say however, I truly believe I’m a leo and I’m exactly like the star sign says. I make all my resolutions on my birthday and see August as an entirely reflective month.
You look absolutely gorgeous and I love that you feel better than ever, and that you’re embracing 28. There is such a silly notion that your twenties are the best of life and you have to do this and that whatever, but I think my thirties will be awesome. Each stage definitely does add more wisdom, and like you said, that should be celebrated! Beautiful post girl!! xx
It really is such an intriguing concept! I love that you make your resolutions around your birthday as well!
Thanks beauty! There really is! I am so excited for thirties! I feel like I am much more secure with myself then I was in my earl twenties and it is such a great feeling! It really does! Awe thank you so much sweets! Thank you for reading! <3

Happy Birthday month!!! At 27 I felt like I was struggling to swim against the current while juggling way too many balls and trying to figure out how to fit in all the things I wanted to do in the span of one lifetime. I put way too much pressure on myself, when the truth is, no amount of struggling or even hard work will change some things. I haven’t figured out if I’ve gotten better at not sweating the small stuff and enjoying the moment, or if I’ve just gotten sidetracked by white hairs and wrinkles, but getting older has its neat parts – I feel like, at 37, my brain has quieted down a bit and it’s easier to just be me – if that makes any sense. 🙂
