I was hoping to do a birthday photo shoot, but I ran out of time. This past weekend we moved out of our apartment and are in a Hotel for the weekend and then FINALLY we are getting the key to your new house on Tuesday.
DID EVERYONE HEAR THAT WE ARE FINALLY MOVING INTO OUR NEW HOUSE!!!
(I will do a update later this week with picture of the house, once we are moved in).
So today I celebrate ME! The birth of Me! The person I have grown to be! The person I will become! The sister, daughter, mom, friend, wife, I am! Today I celebrate Me!
Today I will wake up to sounds of my phone buzzing off the hook. The birthday messages will start rolling in.
I am officially 27 years old.
I was laying in bed last night, thinking about my year of being 26 years old and how fast it flew by. As I get older, the years move along quicker and quicker. Why is that? We don't necessarily get busier. We don't shorten the weeks. My guess is we don't stop to enjoy the moment we're in enough, so life speeds on by and another year we grow older. Truth be told, 26 wasn't my favorite year ever.
I know what you're thinking...I've got an amazing marriage and a supportive and loving family ... how could year 26 bring me anything but good memories? And I will tell you you're so right. I definitely had some great memories. But living away from my husband for over 7 months was very hard! And feeling like a nomad and not having a space that is yours, was a bit harder then I anticipated. Its kind of funny that we are finally moving into our new house the day after my 27th birthday. I can image this next year is going to be a great one!! So far, 27 feels...better. I'm sure it will come with its own bundle of ups and downs, but that's just life, isn't it?
I am grateful to God for the gift of life. Also thankful to my parents for nurturing me into the graceful, lovely, and great woman I am today. Happy birthday to Me! I wish myself many more years of joy, love, laughter and health. I wish myself strength and wisdom for days to come and success with everything I do today, and tomorrow!
