Let's Toast to 21!


It’s official – today I turn the big 2-1! Yippee!

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of birthdays. I’m excited to celebrate with some of my favorite people – I have the best family and friends that anyone could ask for.

A few years ago, this birthday would have completely freaked me out. I’m over that first “hump” of the twenty-somethings and now I’m really in it, fully committing to this whole adulthood and getting older thing. Every year is a transition, every year brings new discoveries – about myself, my world, my passions, my relationships.

And yes, that can be scary. Next year may not be anything like this; I could be in a completely difference place (mentally, spiritually, physically, emotionally).

But, I’m comforted by the fact that I really like the person that I’m becoming. So as long as I can stay myself, I know that the rest will fall in line.

Happy Birthday to all of the other March 18th’s out there!
