it’s my birthday

It’s my birthday! This time, 25 years ago – my Mama and Daddy welcomed their firstborn, baby girl into this world. I like to think this was their proudest moment – but, I know it was one of their most proudest moments.

You are fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14

Today, I turn the big 2 – 5. Today, I hit my quarter-life mark. Today, I’m 2 years older than Justin. Today, I’m celebrating my birthday in Naples, Florida with two of our favorite cousins, Trae and Carolyn. (More on this to come!) Today, I celebrate my age – for the first time as a married woman. Today, I rejoice at surviving another year. Today, I am blessed. Today, I am not alone – Obama gets another year older, too.

Since I’ve reached the quarter year, I’m listing 25 things that you may or may not know about me.
