Well it’s been 26 years since my terrified parents became my mom and dad. Contray to what my mom may say, I was not a beautiful newborn. Yeah that’s me with the conehead. Luckily it is now normally shaped and I have hair.
I cannot believe I turned 26 today. I am officially at an age that, even at 22, I thought was old. Now I’m not saying I’m old, because I mean come, 26 isn’t even close to the midpoint of my life. I just cannot believe that I’m not officially closer to 30 than I am to 20. How did the time fly by so fast? I swear I was just graduating from high school like five minutes ago. Even more strange, I feel like my parents just turned 26 not that long ago. In fact, when my stepmom Liz started dating my dad Lmost 18 years ago, she was 26. What a brave woman to take on a man that had a 8 year and 5 year old. It’s just
crazy scary to think that at my age my parents had kids in elementary school.
My mid-twenties, yes Josh I’m still in my mid-twenties, have been awesome so far:
Age 24-Married my lobster
Age 25-Ran my first marathon and went on an amazing trip to Italy
Age 26-????-We’ll see what the year brings.
What I do know is that I’m just a super lucky
girl woman. I have wonderful friends and family. I even have wonderful coworkers, case in point, Lisa who brought me this delicious and super cute cake for my birthday. (Thank you one last time!) Nothing better than the smell of cake in the morning when you arrive to your cubicle.
This year is going to be great I know it! How could it not be? I’m happy, healthy (well almost), I have a job, a house, a wonderful, loving husband and dog. Bonus-I get to go on another fabulous European adventure to Paris and London in September, two races already scheduled (hopefully I’ll be able to do them), and all sorts of surprises that are going to pop up. Yeah, it’s going to be good. 😉
Thanks for all the love and support!
Josh took me out for an amazing dinner at this tiny little restaurant called Praha. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. I had the Pepper Steak “Galleria”. So delicious and beautifully presented. I should have taken a picture but felt silly. Excellent birthday!
P.S. I scheduled my MRI today. I know I wasn’t going to do it, but I tried to run again last night…no dice. It hurt bad. I have PT on Wednesday and I’m going to order custom orthodics. MRI is scheduled for first thing on Thursday morning…booo.
