Today marks the day where I exit my mid twenties. Justin reminds me of this quite often (especially since he still has a couple of months left in his mid 20s). Today – I turn 27 (but promise you I still feel like I am 18… with a two degrees, a real person job, and a husband.) I will be entering the world of the late 20s. Do I care? Not so much. I won’t go all over dramatic-omg I am getting so old-slow time down-where has the time gone on you!
Last year, I talked about lessons I learned over the year. I re read them a few weeks ago. Truth be told.. I forgot some of those lessons. So, I am really glad that I have this blog so I can reread posts and remember the things that I found to be oh-so-important to me at one point in my life.
So rather than lessons.. let’s talk about (some amazing.. some not-so amazing) events that I have endured (wrong choice of word.. but you’ll get over it) .. over the last 12 months. (Truth.. I aimed to do 27.. I’m all about balance and know that life isn’t always rainbows and butterflies. (But I do like rainbows and butterflies.)
1. Duh. I got married. It was spectacular. The most amazing day of my life (so far.. let’s be real.. I know things will only get better from here).
2. I traveled to the Caribbean for the first time and loved every piece of Aruba!
3. I ran a (second) half marathon knocking 5 minutes off of my previous PR in just 2 weeks! (And have not trained for a race since…
4. We got an amazing, cute, cuddly (sometimes incredibly over energized and at times annoying…) pup Colby that I love with all my heart!
5.I learned just how precious life can be and how to cope with an untimely death. I found out that being strong on the outside and being strong on the inside are two completely different things. Sometimes, being strong on the outside takes presedence. Life moves forward.. but it too precious to be taken for granted.
