27 things for turning 27

Small group on my 27th birthday....they surprised me with a cake!

Small group on my 27th birthday….they surprised me with a cake!

My age rounds up to 30… :/

I am a full grown adult

Having people guess my age 8 years younger than I am is not starting to be SO bad.


I know who I am so much more than I used to.

I know God so much more than I used to….I never could have imagined what it would be like to know Him like this.

I’ve been reading the Bible consistently and on my own for 15 years……whooooooooooaaaa….that’s nuts!!

I have waaaay more fashion sense than I used to.

I try new things.

I am so blessed with many friends….so many I can’t keep up with them all and it makes me sad.

I still wish there were 30 hours in a day.

I sing, I dance, I create.

I am now a blogger.  (In fifth grade I remember thinking I would like to be an author when I grew up.  Yes.)

I now TEACH fifth grade.

I’ve experienced heartache.

I have dreams.

I am an aunt!!

I’ve dyed my hair,

traveled to several different countries.

My mind is expanding to think about deeper and deeper things. The more I know the more I realize how much more there is to know.

I celebrate new years to come,

I mourn past years I can never go back to.

My heart continues to capture childlike thoughts.

I still love to play outside.

I am content,

learning to live in the moment of today…

hoping for a beautiful tomorrow.




I have a feeling about 27….I think it’s gonna be good.
