In case you’ve been living under a rock, it is no longer 2010. 2011 is here! 🙂
For me, the beginning (well, almost) of each year also always marks a milestone, my birthday.
This year I turned 25. I hit a quarter of a century and had a blast doing it! I celebrated with my husband, my parents and Lindsey, my best friend from going up who doesn’t get home very often. Her birthday is January 4th, so we’ve always had a tradition of celebrating our birthdays together. In the 15 or so years we’ve done it, I can’t think of more than 2 times we haven’t celebrated together, even if it was a couple days early for one or both of us. Texas Roadhouse was amazing! I think I drank enough sweet tea for the year! : -)
Later on in the evening, John gave me the sweetest card. He always writes me long, personal messages in my cards and makes me feel cherished and appreciated. I always make him read them to me, too; it just makes it seem extra special, at least to me. I love being his wife!

Thank you, Father, for the gift of life and the opportunity to share it with people I love.
