25.

As I reflect on my 25th year I can't help but smile. It has been a darn good year. It started out with the most amazing 25th birthday celebration. Garth took me away to Traverse City and we stayed in the most beautiful hotel. He even made reservations at the top floor restaurant for a sunset dinner. My hubby is the BEST!We went to Florida together to spend Thanksgiving with my grandparents. We had such a blast and made so many fun memories. Like the time we went to Daytona Beach because that is all Garth wanted to do while we were there. Well, my grandpa had a "short cut" that actually took about 3 hours go get there. We were at the beach for about an hour and my grandparents were so cold that we had to leave. Garth was a great sport about it and we had fun anyways.

We spend our first Christmas as a married couple! We spend all this time planning out all these traditions we wanted to start as a new family, but got so stressed out with all of them we didn't do any!

We celebrated our first anniversary of marriage in the same exact room we had on our wedding night. It was a huge surprise that the hotel gave it to us! And it was one of my favorite days.
I watched my baby become an American citizen!!


I was a blonde and a red head.

It was such a good year and I'm sad to see it go on Saturday. EEK. I'm actually not that freaked out about it because I'm still in the mid-20s and I don't think I will fully freak out until I hit 30. That is the age I feel like I can't make mistakes anymore, the age I have to be responsible, and the age I start having children. Craziness.

I'm excited to see what 26 brings. I'm hoping this will be the year we buy a house, get a dog, and head to Mexico for our 2nd anniversary. But most importantly, I pray this new year brings me closer to my God and to my amazing husband.

Happy Early Birthday because I am notorious about failing to remember them on the actual day.

Your year was wonderful! What a great way to share it with us.

I'm sure that your 26th year will be fabulous, because, like a fine wine, we truly do get better with age.

PS: I tagged you for a game on my blog. Enjoy!
