My 24th Year

Last Tuesday I turned the big 2-5! As I was thinking about my 24th year of life, I was thinking of all of the really awesome things I got to do! I've definitely have had my highs and lows this year, and dont get me wrong, this year hasnt been all lollipops and gummy bears, but I am grateful for all of the amazing times I have  had!

In January, me and Trent were able to go on a cruise with Moxie. It was the first cruise we had been on and the first time I had ever left Nash overnight! It ended up being so much fun. We loved relaxing on the boat and hanging out with some of our favorite friends. We also got to go para sailing and hang out in Cabo. It was a blast!

 The day after we got home from Cabo, I was able to run a 10k with my bestie, Colby. This was a HUGE milestone for me because I have never dedicated so much time training for something I never thought I could do. I have flat feet which means I have issues with my knees, hips, and lower back but I've always wanted to run! So I decided to just suck it up and do it. It was great for me to finish and so fun running with my best friend motivating me to keep going!

 Trent and I also got to go to St. Croix with Trents parents. It was such a relaxing little get away! The island is so beautiful!
 In July, me and Colby took a little time away from our kids and went to San Diego. Every mom should do this at least once a year!! It was one of the best vacations I have been on! We did whatever we wanted when we wanted. We saw movies and ate amazing food and cupcakes! We laid on the beach, rode bikes on the beach, and took naps on the beach. It was amazing to say the least. Oh and we also crossed an item off Colbys bucket list and tried out for American Idol. (my second time) It was so fun and I cant wait to do it next year!!

 A few weekends ago, Trent and I took another trip with the Moxie crew to San Diego. When we got there the power was out in San Diego and all the way down the coast to Yuma. We had no electricity which made for a fun night! We all talked and played Sardines. As soon as the lights came on we were glued to the tv, ipads, cell phones and laptops! It was a great weekend though. Very relaxing, good food, some thrifting, and lots of laying on the beach. The best part was skydiving! Trent won a skydiving incentive at work so he was going to go with Austin, Ashytn and one other guy from the office. I was going to take pictures of them. The morning that we were getting ready to go, Ashtyn told me she had a surprise for me and was taking me skydiving too! It was crazy! I think we all were a little nervous.

Looking back at my 24th year I can truly say I am one lucky lady. I got to do all of these things plus watch my baby boy learn and grow, see some of my best friends get married and have babies, spend time with my family and friends, and celebrate my 4th wedding anniversary with the love of my life.
