Thirty-Something and Thankful

It is that time again. I know it comes every year, shortly after our anniversary. It sneaks up on me like a thief in the night, ready to steal away another year. My birthday.

Officially, I have stopped counting birthdays after I turned 25. But I have to say that most of the best things that have happened to me have happened AFTER I turned 25. My favorite post-25 milestones:

  • I met my husband and got engaged shortly after my 26th birthday

  • I married my wonderful husband shortly before my 27th birthday

  • I got a career-making promotion and went to France with my sweetheart before my 28th birthday

  • I went to Italy with my sweet husband after my 28th birthday

  • I moved to Asia (for 3 months) right after my 29th birthday

  • I found out I was pregnant with my son ON my 30th birthday (literally on the day)

  • Of course I gave birth to my sweet boy before my 31st birthday

  • This was followed shortly by getting pregnant with my precious daughter before my 33rd birthday and then getting to meet her 9 months later

So I have had a pretty great life after my 25th birthday, even if I won't admit that I ever advanced in age...except I just did on my blog!!

I am excited about seeing what great things happen after this birthday too!
