Lovelies! Today I turn 26 years old and boy oh boy is it a weird and wonderful feeling. Weird because that means I am closer to 30 than I am to 20 and wonderful because my day has been full of love from all my friends and family. My sister and her family video chatted with me this morning, my facebook friends wrote amazing things on my page (one even wrote me a funny poem, thanks Travis!), I just got off the phone with my mother who chatted with me for an hour, and I am waiting on my favorite part of the day (a phone call from my grandparents who sing to me every year). :) All in all, a good day (and tonight T is taking me to my favorite little place, Lotus Leaf)!
The older I get the faster time seems to pass. I have so many memories from the past 26 years and I want to keep things going with a few goals to put my 26th year to good use: a list of 26 things to accomplish before I turn 27.
