|Chocolate on chocolate birthday cake they gave me at work. So. Dang. Good.|
Today I turn 25 years old. Wow, what!? Didn't I just turn 21 like... yesterday? Funny thing about being 25 - the only time I can feel my age is when I am recovering from a night of too much fun. Days like that I feel every bit of 25. Depending on the amount of fun that was had, I might even feel like I'm pushing 45. Oh, also, some of Taylor Swift's songs started annoying me this year..that probably is a sure sign of aging.
Here's the deal - I realize 25 is very young. Well, I guess it's old if you are comparing me to a 17 year old, but I like my 25 year old self way better than my 17 year old self so I am okay with that. :) I am just a weirdo about birthdays.
I am going to make my 25th the BEST year yet. Twenty-four was great, but the move from Arkansas to Alabama had me on an emotional roller coaster at times. I love the Huntsville area. I LOVE that Brian gets to manage a bookstore and be his own boss. I love that I work 40 hours a week instead of 60+ like I did in Little Rock. With that being said, I do miss my friends and family. That doesn't change, and all that missing takes some getting use to. However, we have been here a year now, and things could not be better. I am going to speak for Brian and myself (I do that a lot) and say that we know this is where we are supposed to be. As things keep falling into place, it just makes me more and more sure that we have found a place to call home.
I have so much to be thankful for on this day. I'm probably most thankful for the Birthday Cupcake from GiGi's Brian gave me. Yes. It changed my life a little bit.
