The Last Year of My Twenties!

Hip Hip Hooray - Today is my Birthday!
That's right, last night I left the world of 28 and crawled into the world of 29'ers!
I say crawled because boy do I feel old! lol
This is my last year in my twenties... can you believe that?!
Next year is gonna be a doozy... but lets not think of that just yet!

Twenty Nine Years!
Doesn't that sound like a long time to be on this earth?
I guess not if you are in your 60's or 70's... but for me, 29 years feels like a long time!

This birthday feels a little different for some reason.
Like I said, it's my last year in my twenties.
I wonder where I thought I would be at this age when I was a little girl?
I know I wanted to be married. I wanted to have a house. I wanted to have babies... typical stuff that little girls dream of. But I don't think I ever dreamed life would be like this... this good! 

For 29 years I have been spoiled with a Momma that loves me and has always been there for me.
For 23 years I have been a sister to some of the most amazing, smart, and fun siblings!
For 10 years I have been lucky enough to have the kindest, patient, most respectful and gentle man in my life! Five of which I have been able to be married to that man!
And for the last 4 years I have actually been a Momma... a Mom to the best batch of babes I could have ever dreamed of!

Funny how when you are little you just don't know what the world will look like when you become a grown up.
You don't quite know where you will be, who you will be with, or how and why everything works out the way that it does.
I guess that is the difference between a child and and adult.
Because as an adult, I know where I am going and who I am going there with!

I may not know everything or all the little details but I know what I want out of life and for the most part... I know how to get it!
I know to put God first, at the center of everything! - your life, your marriage, your home.
I know to surround yourself with good people, moral people, people who've got your back!
It's amazing how building a strong core group of people can make all the difference in certain circumstances.
And I know that blood, sweat, and tears is the way good things are made!

So, I guess my 29 years on this earth has been more than good, it's been blessed!
As I look ahead at the next birthday I will celebrate, I think there are some more things I want to get done and accomplished.
When I enter the world of thirties I want to feel confident about leaving my twenties behind and putting some of my best years ahead! I got a little more work to do this year!

But for now, I will not worry about goals or checking things off the list.
Today I am going to relax, stay away from a paint brush, spend time with those I love, and hopefully have a HUGE piece of chocolate cake!

Thanks to everyone that has wished me a happy birthday so far!
I truly have some of the best of the best in my life!

Here's to 29 being a happy, healthy, accomplished, and blessed year!

Oh... and if YOU wanna have a piece of cake in celebration of me today... you go right ahead! haha.
