12:01 a.m. midnight on the morning of my twenty-fourth birthday. when i was younger, i never really stopped to think what twenty-four might be like, exactly... it was far off and i would be older but that was about it. i was too concerned with being young, truly young, which is a great thing.
anyway, now i'm here. twenty-four. i'm a little bit older, perhaps a little wiser, and more excited about life than ever. i never could have imagined the path my existence has taken, for it is far better, far more beautiful and spectacular than i ever thought it could be. i sit here and think about all of the wonderful things i have in my life and i feel grateful, fortunate, and lucky. i am happy. life is good.
twenty-three was a pretty big year... i married my best friend, my other half, and honeymooned for a week in las vegas. i took on more responsibilities in a job i love more every day. i wrote a novel. (anyone want to do some reading or editing? let me know!) the mister and i made plans for a trip to central america and took passport photos. we finished up 2011 with a bang during an unexpected and completely amazing trip to south carolina. there is so much more to twenty-three, of course...
i have no idea what twenty-four holds, but i'm hoping it will be my best year yet. i can't wait to see what happens in the next three hundred and sixty-five days. here's to the future!
