Loving Life and All That Comes With It

I just realized that this blog entry was never posted. It was written the first week of June, you go!

Today I have been thinking of this crazy life of mine and all I can say is "Thank You!" I have so much to be thankful for and it seems like so many times, it goes unnoticed. James, Evan and I just got back from a great trip to Callaway Gardens in Georgia and what a fun time the three of us had. It was so good to get away and just have a couple of days laugh and enjoy life as a family of three!

My 30th birthday is soon approaching and I have really been thinking about what it means to be 30! Some days, it makes me feel like I am getting SO old. Some days I think about all that I have done and accomplished in these 30 years. Some days it just makes me tired to think about being 30. Some days it makes me grateful that I have lived and loved for 30 years. Some days it makes me look back on cherrished memories and smile. Some days it makes me think about all the things that I could have done a little differently. And today, it makes me think about all the great things that are in store for the next 30 years! God blessed me with a fantastic family, college education, wonderful friends, my great husband, sweet, sweet Evan, great jobs and opportunities, and chances to be looked at as opportunities to grow spiritually in my 20's. The 30's can only get better!!

With all the craziness that this life brings, I am excited to say that I have finally learned to roll with the punches (well, maybe I am still learning to do that). Instead of being strung so tightly, I am learning that God really does want to handle all of those "things" for us, so why should I worry? My sweet friend Jenn has such a laid back way about her and I love that. I feel confident that is one of the reasons God has her in my life-to teach me a few things. So, today I am loving life and all that comes with it. I know that "all that stuff" are ways I can grow!

I am attaching some pics for you to enjoy. Evan is growing so much!

Until next time...
