Well, like that, I am 28! How crazy to think 10 years ago I was graduating high school and looking ahead to moving to the city that would become my home/where I met my husband/where I would build the rest of my life.
In a lot of ways, 28 is oddly similar to 18.
This year was seriously insane. The last 6 months have been life-altering. The next 6 months have me both terrified and thrilled. We have so much to share soon with y’all, but for now… I will just leave some cliff hangers hehe.
27 brought me a lot of joy, hurt, disappointment, tears, parenting wins, parenting fails, and -thank God- growth. I think 27, arguably, brought me the most heartache and disappointment I have experienced in my life. I learned what I value at my very core more than ever, both for my family and personally. We took a lot of risks. We jumped – We fell a few times – We rose victorious a few others. It’s truly been a ground breaking, put a flag in it kind of year. This is a year I will look back on when I am old and say, “Oh yeah, that was a great age. Great year. Risky and imperfect, but a GREAT year.”
For 28, we are looking to some huge shifts and changes as a family. We are gaining Baby R (any day now!) and beginning some massive new adventures. I believe this year will be one we step into promises and callings God told us we would do a very long time ago. A fulfillment of sorts.
There are a lot of question marks over us right now, yet I have never felt so confident in my family, who we are, and what we are called to. I am honestly so pumped for 28! Thanks for being here, as always. I am so grateful for each and every one of you!
