Oh hi, 31

Iโ€™m liking you so far. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Usually when another year rolls around, I use it as an opportunity to be thankful for what Iโ€™ve been given, and also to look forward to the future. What do I want to accomplish next? Where do I want to be? Who do I want to be?

Today, Iโ€™m just focusing on the right now.

I met the Pilot 10 years ago, at Starbucks. When I walked into the coffee shop with my friend, I whispered to her, โ€œSee that guy over there? Thatโ€™s my husband.”

Little did I know that I would get to marry him, have incredible adventures and two beautiful babies (and fur babies) together.

Iโ€™m always thankful for another year surrounded by those I love, another day, another moment. 

Iโ€™ll be soaking up the right now, because itโ€™s a pretty great one. Ok, and eating some cake. ๐Ÿ™‚

xoxo
