It’s a GOLDEN day!

Today has finally arrived – my golden birthday!  I turn 26 on the 26th, and sadly I have been excited for this for quite some time.  I still love birthdays even though I’m now closer to 30 than 20.

Sometimes it seems kind of weird to be getting older because I’m not sure I actually feel older, but I have seen my self continue to grow and mature.  Frankly, I like that because it means I’m getting better at life (I hope anyway!)

I had a wonderful weekend with my parents this past weekend, and my husband has already been so amazing.  We are going out for a simple dinner tomorrow because I didn’t want to miss Bible study tonight. 

Some highlights from this last year:

An awesome trip to Barrett-Jackson with my hubby (technically it was for my last birthday)

Seeing the hubby graduate law school

Getting connected to a great church home and growing more in my faith (more on that to come)

Getting my first passport and going to the Dominican Republic

Celebrating Christmas with my wonderful family

Going on a “safari” with my parents and hubby last weekend (I’ll post about that too)

It has been quite a year, and I look forward to the next one.  It should be a full one as I prepare to take my PE exam, watch my husband’s practice grow, and prepare to start thinking about children (well that last one will probably happen after the 27th birthday).

For your viewing pleasure, some pictures from the past:

So there is kind of gap between first grade and college, but I don’t have a scanner and digital cameras didn’t exist back then!  My sis scanned the baby pictures for a project a while ago.

Anyway, if any of you readers are celebrating a birthday today, Happy Birthday to you too!
