My Birthday

My birthday is just around the corner. I'll be 31. I am not ashamed to tell the world my age, in fact I embrace it. The only problem with turning a year older is...I still don't have it all figured out. I remember as a little girl thinking that 21 was old. Been there done that and don't want to go back to that. Once I was 21, 30 seemed just a little old, now that I am almost 31...nothing seems old to me. I am at the point now where I can't wait to be certain ages. I'll be 33 when we celebrate our 10 year anniversary and 93 when we celebrate our 60th. I'll be 37 when Briley is 10 and 41 when Briggs is 10. I'll be 45 when Briley goes to college and 49 when we will be empty nesters. Maybe that's it, maybe 50 is when I will have it all figured out. Right? Maybe I should ask my mom, she just turned 52, she seems to have everything figured out but she's also been an empty nester since she was 44. I should have had kids younger...nah, I love where I am at in my life right now and couldn't ask for anything better. Thank you Jesus for giving me another year to live out your plan, you never cease to amaze me.

Come back for my 31 things before 32 hits!
Briley took this picture and it's not half bad {I should have put makeup on...oh well!}

That's you with no makeup? Sincerely, you look great! I enjoyed the thoughtful nature of your blog. Truly, the older I get, the happier I am. Sounds like you are the same. As for figuring it all out- I am not sure we are meant to! As long as God knows, you're good to go!
