If you could be your favorite age for 30 days, what age would you be?
I'd go back to my early 20's. I was enjoying a good job, my independence, I was in love, and all was right with the world. I traveled with friends, had great times, built memories.

What was your favorite age so far? What age would you like to revisit for 30 days if you had the chance?

7. Although I've had better periods than the last 30 days,
I wouldn't trade the next 30 days for any of them, because for all I know, they'll be the best yet.

9. I am my favorite age.
I guess I'd extend 25 by an extra 30 days. :-)

12. 5 years old
When I was five I was cute and blonde and my daddy's girl all the way. I could still walk around in my underwear. All was good. :)

16. I knew everything when I was 19.
Now I wish I knew half as much as I thought I knew then.

The older I get, the more I learn, the less I realize I really know. :(

15. The 'Golden Years' are really ages 0-5
(although I'm a ways off from being what 'conventional wisdom' says they are...) A friend told me once that the 'golden years' are really ages 0-5...you can fall asleep any place you want at any time and you wake up in the morning all nice and safe in your bed with your pj's on! {{How did THAT happen?!?! ;-)} How's that for great! :-)

22. Yeah...
And you can do strange things, like walk outside with your underwear on your head, or better yet, your mother's undies and everyone just thinks you're cute, not perv. :)

19. Sometime during college
That would be ages 18-22. I have never been happier and more confident about myself than I was in college. I am only 26 though so I am not far from then.

20. I like my age now
Well, actually, I like my life now. We're settled, pretty financially secure, the kids are big enough to be fun and interesting, we can travel when we like.

Sometimes I wouldn't mind having my 30 year-old body back, but I wouldn't go back to being thirty for anything.

24. As the saying goes. I wish I knew then what I know now.
I'd love to be 20 again. Ahh the women I ruined with rushed love.

29. Okay.
10 = freedom. I worked for a year to achieve a dream, and bought my horse. I spent every spare moment wandering the hills on that little mustang, the happiest I've ever been. I still do the same these days; it's where I find peace. Except that I have so many responsibilities now that I have to schedule that time sparingly.

29 = freedom, again. This time I was working two jobs and raising two kids alone. But still, for the first time in my life, I was free to make my own decisions. I deferred to no one. I was fit, healthy, and had enough energy to still have a life outside the two jobs.

(These days, I only work one job, but am still putting in as many or more hours as I did on two jobs 15 years ago. For one pay. And I don't have the energy level I did then, when the work day is over!)
