Reflection: 28 going on 29

This weekend I turn 29 years old. Crazy, right?!?! This time, last year I had HIGH HOPES for what this year would hold for us and boy did 28 deliver!
We got to travel to Italy last year to ring in my 28th birthday - We saw Tuscany, Cinque Terre, and Rome.  It was pure magic. 
Shortly thereafter, we found out we were pregnant with a little girl! 
I now walk around with a permanent grin on my face because that girl has stolen my heart with her sparkling eyes & smile.

I don't know everything that is going to happen this year but I am SO excited about what I DO know:
  • I know that we are moving back to TEXAS in 18 days! (But who's counting?) 
  • We will be closer to my family and I will finally have friends again. :) 
  • I am starting 2 new businesses and going to try this whole work-from-home Mom gig.
  • Basically every single holiday this year is going to be extra special now that we have a little one to share it with! 
This is the last year of my 20's and I am not sad about leaving them... I look back at how far I have come since I turned 20... I graduated college, worked 2 really great jobs, got married, moved to France, and had a baby.  I am so blessed and grateful. 

This year, I want to embrace our journey as a new family of 3 and soak it all in. I never want to take any of my experiences for granted so I am going to try my best to have a heart filled with gratitude.... for my past, the present, and what is to come.
