I love birthdays.  For me, it's a milestone marker and I can say with great happiness that year 25 was quite the adventure.  I married the boy of my dreams, continued to build friendships to heights I never thought were possible, found new relationships within a church that wrapped it's arms around us with such love, traveled and experienced so many things I never could have dreamed, marked off a few more bucket list items, and laughed and grew and accomplished so much.  I believe birthdays are a celebration for all said things. 

With that same excitement I move on to the next set of goals and new adventures.  I can't wait to see where this next year takes me.  Where it takes all of us.

26, let's see what you got...
