The very end of my 20′s

Happy Birthday!

At 8:31am, 29 years ago, I came into this world laughing.

That’s how my mom and dad tell it, anyway.

My twenties took me from Atlanta to New Jersey, Orlando to Seattle. I met some of my very best friends in my 20′s. I found the love of my life. I learned a lot. I think my 20 year old self would be really proud of my 29 year old self. My 20′s also helped me figure out who I want to be when I ‘grow up.’ They showed me that there really is no place like home.

Cheers to my last year of the best decade of my life so far! Cheers to finally making my way home again and to always knowing that I have incredible friends, no matter where I end up.

And of course, thanks Mom and Dad! Not only did you give me the BEST birthday ever (0123) but you’re the reason that I am so very blessed.

Happy Birthday, to me!

    because of the photo you have used at the top of this post I’ll be singing the happy birthday mister president version of the song, instead of the celine version of the song.
