Today, I officially celebrate my last birthday in my 20’s. ugh… I’m so not sure how I feel about almost being 30. It literally seems like yesterday I was aching to turn 18 and now I’m turning 29, where does the time go?
In my 29 years, I have been fortunate to experience so many things. I’ve given birth to three amazing kids, celebrated 10 years of wedding bliss, and gave my life to God (twice). I have learned so many life lessons over my last 29 years, that I couldn’t think of a better post to write on my 29th birthday than to share those life lessons with you.
