As of today, I'm officially in my last year of my twenties! Year 28 was great - we bought our first house, made a great group of friends, had another successful year of business, and celebrated our first wedding anniversary! It was a year of settling into our new life in Virginia and our marriage. There were a few growing pains along the way, but it was generally a joy-filled year, which I'm incredibly grateful for. I'm hopeful that 29 will be a continuation of the good stuff!

I'm going to enjoy the day off of work (mostly) and give myself a little time to rest and recharge. Mike has some things planned for today -- all I know is that I should be ready to leave the house later this morning. I'm looking forward to spending the day with him!

In the spirit of celebrating, I want to give away a few of my favorite things to one of you!

Thanks for celebrating another birthday with me!
