Today I am 29.

Hi guys!
Today I am officially 29 years old! My last year in my 20's. So much has happened in my 20's that I am so grateful for, so many trails, tribulations so many lessons learned. I've had bad days, good days, and everything in between. So as I sit here today on my birthday I thought I would write a small post to reflect back on my 20's and all it has taught me.

First of all, I would like to say thank you to god because without him I wouldn't be here. There are many people who don't live to see 29 so I am forever grateful. 

The most influential moment thus far of my 20's was becoming the mother to Ivy and Aria. I hadn't ever wanted kids and when I met my husband everything changed. These two little girls have shaped me into the person I am today and for that, I am grateful as well. I love my girls.

Another huge influential moment of my 20's would be getting married. Being married has taught me more than I ever could imagine. It has taught me how to be more selfless, how to be more patient and how to love harder. My husband is the greatest guy ever, I love him for that. A lot of people told me I was too young to get married but I regret nothing and I am glad that I didn't listen to the opinions of others. Hey Mrs. Carr :)

Then I have my blog, man I am so proud of this thing. This blog has really been an outlet for me not only to express myself but to meet other bloggers, to make a living for my family, to attend amazing events. It has been an honor to call this blog mine. By the way, my blog turns one next week, hooray!

But I think during my 20's one of the best things I have found was myself. I have become my own best friend. I have learned to not rely on anyone or anything. I have taught myself to be happy with me and that's important. But my 20's aren't over yet, today I am 29 and just getting started. There's so much more to accomplish, so much to see, so much to do. I have big plans and goals for this year and I am excited to watch them unravel. So thank you to everyone whos been on this journey with me happy birthday to me...

Here's to chapter 29.
