Goodbye 24, Hello 25


Happy birthday to me!


A lot has happened since my last birthday, and even more will happen before the next one, I’m sure.


I had my birthday cake in ice cream form this year : )


Let’s remember, shall we? In my 24th year, I

  • signed a lease for my first apartment
  • moved in with a boy
  • quit my teaching job
  • moved 300 miles from home
  • became an aunt
  • celebrated 60 years of marriage
  • got engaged
  • ran my first (and second, and third) half marathon
  • said goodbye to a great lady
  • set a wedding date
  • chopped off my hair (again)

All in all, it was pretty good. Definitely busier and more stressful than any other time I can remember, though.

Some things I hope to accomplish in my 25th year:

  • find a teaching job/other job I love
  • run a marathon
  • save for my wedding – debt is no fun!
  • blog more
  • read 25 books
  • find an apartment to make into a home
  • lose 25 pounds
  • complete my new years resolutions

I didn’t do anything special today to celebrate. I baked some cookies last night to bring to work for the kids (and grownups too) and sent the rest with Matt to work.  After work I had a pretty great workout – ran 2 miles, worked my upper body in the weight room. I’ll definitely be feeling it tomorrow. And, despite it being my birthday, I don’t feel like I’ve overindulged too badly.

Now I’m off to wash dishes (on my birthday, boo) and do my other, normal get-ready-for-work chores.
