Good morning! It is quite the good morning indeed! Why you ask? Oh, well, because I have had a great beach vaca, and well…you know….today is my 26th birthday.  WOW! I can honestly say this year has flown. When I think back to last years birthday I am kinda sad….I can say that it was the worst birthday (actual day) that I have ever had…long story, personal stuff, can’t share with you right now, maybe one day. ANYWAY, it was rough, miserable, etc. The only bright spot was my sweet sweet bible study group which I miss TERRIBLY taking me out to dinner.

So, thinking back to that awful day, and then thinking about how much I miss my friends back where we used to live….gah…ok, moving on, supposed to be HAPPY, it’s my BIRTHDAY! I entered the world Saturday, July 13, 1985, shortly before 1:00 pm. Gee, what a fun little bundle of joy! (apparently, I was very dark with a full head of black hair…and my dad didn’t think I belonged to him….seriously…)

Let’s do a little birthday flashback, shall we? No making fun, mmmkkk?

My birthday 2008



look how tiny stinky is!

My birthday 2007



Clearly, I can’t decide if I want long or short hair? back to long this year I’m afraid! (pictures tomorrow)

As I embark on my 26th year, I have a lot of things I want to accomplish, and I look back on a lot of things I DID accomplish in year 25. Moved 3 hours away from where we were living. Added a new job. Built a house. Ran a marathon. wow, and that’s just a few things I did in year 25!

It’s pretty obvious I have a LOT to do this year if I can ever match all I did in my 25th year. I haven’t had time to really think out my goals for this year, but I will, don’t worry! So, as I head down the other side of the twenties hill (YIKES!) I say cheers to 26, and many, many more.


Don’t worry, I made a good wish. But I’m not telling. Smile

    Happy Birthday! I found your blog when I Googled Castaway Cay 5k and when I saw your picture I recognized you from your trip reports on the disboards. I am a fairly new runner and am looking forward to my first half in September. Looking forward to reading your blog.

    Not to burst your bubble, but you just completed your 26th year. You’re into your 27th year now. You should have a big running party when you hit 26.2! Happy birthday.
