Birfday

It's the end of my birthday and I'm reflecting on this blog because there's so much to reflect on. I turned 29 today, which means 28 is over and I haven't taken a moment to let that sink in so let me take a moment.

....

Okay, I'm ready.

28 was a big year for me, not because I did anything exceptional, but because it was filled with lots of personal growth. I went through a lot of different trials, tests, tribulations, lessons, ups, and downs and while I'm glad it's over, it's nice to look back and remember the really low times and the super high times and know that I got through it and I survived when I didn't think I'd make it out of the rain. 

I am very excited to be exiting out of my 20s and entering my 30s. I am looking forward to leaving behind years of being insanely confused, anxious, and lost. I know my 30s will have its own bag of tricks up its sleeve, but I am going to be so better prepared for the next era in my life you have no idea.

Thank you to all my girlfriends for presents, birthday wishes, and so much love. Thank you to my parents for almost forgetting my birthday but then remembering and then to my mom for making this photo for me:

Lastly, to my Scott for being the only man I've ever dated to throw me a surprise party even though I kind of knew a little because he made obvious comments that made me think he was throwing me a surprise party...but seriously, to my Scott for making me feel like it's my birthday every single damn day. I can't begin to explain to you what he means to me so I won't. 

LASTLY THANKS TO MY FEW FOLLOWERS WHO LOVE ME BECAUSE I LOVE YOU. ALSO I MISS AND LOVE MY FOSTER DOG HANK WHO IS CURRENTLY AT THE DOGGY HOSPITAL. I CAN'T WAIT TILL YOU COME HOME TO ME.
