That's right... as of last Thursday, I have entered into my LATE twenties. At first I was a little bummed about getting older, but I have to to say that life just keeps getting better with time.
27 was a great year for me! I grew so much in my faith, learned more about motherhood, got baptized, made it through a four month deployment, visited Jesse in Turkey, and even managed to lose roughly twenty pounds during that year.
But looking forward, I cannot wait for the next year. I hope that this year hold even more blessings for our family in the coming year. It could very well be a year of major changes in our lives. Jesse will reenlist, we will pretty likely move across the country or even world in the next year, and God willing conceive and welcome another baby into our family. I am excited beyond belief to see what God has in store for my life during my 28th year. :)
We spent the weekend in Portland as a family. We went to the zoo, ate at Buffalo Wild Wings, got a canopy for the truck, and rode lots of rides at Oaks Park. So much fun, don't worry, I will be posting lots of pictures this week. :)
Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of family and friends! :)
