It’s My Birthday!

It’s my birthday!

Today I turn the big 2 – 4 :) On my birthday, I normally like to take a minute or two and think about all the good things that have happened over the past year. Twenty-three was really good to me.

I had the most very special Christmas trip that I will remember (and thank God for) for the rest of my life.

I started a new hobby 😉

My mom’s entire side of the family gathered in Kentucky to see my cousin, Lauren, get married. A family gathering always ensures a good time. I looked forward to that wedding so much, and my cousin was absolutely stunning.

My mom’s very generous friends who I love so much hosted a beautiful bridal shower for me. It was so wonderful to celebrate such an exciting time with a group of the most important women in my life.

My closest girlfriends hosted/gathered for the most epic bachelorette party I could have ever imagined. It was the perfect blend of people, and it was one of the best times I’ve ever had.

After being together for years, and just weeks before our wedding, Cory and I moved into to our very own apartment. Together. For the first time. It’s glorious!

Three words: I got married.

And then I spent a week in St. Lucia with my brand-spankin’-new husband. We became professional relaxers (Or gluttons, for my fellow Catholic readers 😉 )

And during the last 48 hours of my 23rd year, we adopted a furry family member, Cam :)

And those are just the highlights :) I’m tremendously blessed and I can only pray that 24 is just as swell! :)
