See Ya Twenties....

{via}

As I reflect back on my 20's, I can say it was a decade to remember for sure....crazy college times, new state, numbness, and recovery. And while I thought it would be really hard to pick the best year of my twenties, I realized, this past year...the big 2-9 has been my favorite year of my life thus far.

Year 29 brought me deeper friendships, fun travel destinations, new friends, blessed unions, smiles, laughter, tears and a real sense of triumph. A year that could have made me or broken me, taught me things about myself I never knew were possible. A strength that I am still working on everyday but that I am so glad I found within myself. Without my experiences of this past decade I know I couldn't be who I am today.

So I am blowing a farewell kiss to my twenties, and thanking them for all the lessons they taught me, but I am moving on and looking forward to my thirties and excited for all the possibilities that lie ahead. See ya tomorrow Thirty!

My darling first born, this post made me cry. You have risen from the ashes like a beautiful bird that shines light on everything and everyone around you in the past year. You do have the most incredible friends one could hope for. You have family that adores you. Again, I'm so proud to be the one that God selected to be your mother.
