It’s my birthday!

It’s my birthday!

I can’t believe I’m turning 32! Do you ever think about the age you’re turning and think gosh I used to think that was so old or that that age looked different?

I am always caught in thinking things like that. I thought back when I turned 17 that is was one of the coolest ages I could be. I think it was because I always felt like one of my super cool older cousins was 17 and I wanted to be just like them.

And now here I am turning 32! Wow! I’m so thankful for each year lived and so thankful that I’m a mom and wife.

I thought I’d do quick and fun 32 things about me today! Are you ready? I hope I can write that many things lol!
