...on a blustery, winter morning at 6:45, on my mom's 28th birthday, I was born. Now here I am at 21, and she's 49 years old. Man, does time fly by! I love sharing a birthday with my mom! It's such a joy to share a special day with someone I love so much!
Summary of year 20:
Last year I spent my birthday in Kansas City. It was a great, mind shaking, heart shifting, crazy, awesome way to spend a birthday - and with such a great people, too! The rest of this past year has been such a journey, a learning experience, undeniably God-encountering, joy-filled, fire-filled, hard, beautiful and stretching year. I can't believe where God has (and is) taking me! I can't believe that a year ago I caught fire!
(Actually, I can't remember where I was on my actual birthday...I spent the whole week celebrating and this part of it just seems to stick out)
This 20th year I...
*I saw my first birth - it was incredible!
*I went on some sweet road trips
*I went on my first, real winter vacation.
*I lived in three different houses. (I'm done with moving for a while)
*I went on my first limo ride (x2)
*I saw Niagra Falls for the first time - it's gorgeous...especially at night with the all the mist.

To know Jesus more.
To love more, to love well.
To take time for the little things in life.
