Today is my 28th birthday.
I love celebrating birthdays, and I am not working today, so I have some good activities planned–starting with my annual birthday run. At some point in my early 20’s, I had the idea that it would be really cool to run my age on my birthday every year… but quickly decided I was already too old for that to be a good idea. 😉 I just go for a comfortable, enjoyable run now. The rest of the day will be packed with reading on the back deck in this gorgeous spring weather, visiting the greenhouse and planting a few flowers, and tonight going to our local trampoline gym and dinner with friends!
Yep, 28 is off to a good start. As I look back over the last year, I must say: 27 was very good to me. Here are some of the highlights of 27, in no particular order:
-Ran some great races, and PRed in the 5k and 10k:
-Celebrated 1 year of marriage with Andrew:
-Filled this garden plot with seeds and dreams:
-… and watched it turn into this:
-Spent time on retreats and mission trips with the amazing teens in my youth group:
-Hiked to my heart’s content (almost ;-))
-Spent lots of time playing outside:
-Celebrated with friends getting married:
-Put my wedding dress back on and pretended I was getting married 😉
-Traveled to Jamaica:
-Traveled to Colorado:
-Most importantly, spent lots of time with family and friends:
I am incredibly thankful for the year behind–really, it was kind of an epic year in terms of everything I had the opportunity to do–and can’t wait to see what the year ahead has in store!
Have a great March 11, everyone! 😀
