I've had a smile on my face all day. I hit 35 today, but I am really thrilled about it. I have loved my 30's more than other decade of my life. My kids were born in the last 4 years, I've helped start 2 churches in the last 3 years, and I am still married to my college boy! I am so looking forward to what is ahead - I mean it. I have had such a great life filled with awesome people who have made me who I am today. My parents, my grandparents, teachers, musicians, and best friends. To all of you who have crossed my path, thank you for being friends, mentors, encouragers, motivators (a.k.a. - booty kickers!), and spiritual advisors. YOU are why this day has come. Thank you for giving of yourselves in big and small ways and giving me the kind of day I've had today. Here's to 35 more!
