Here's To 27!

If someone would have given me a book of my life so far when I was a teenager, I would have read it laughing the entire way through, not believing it at all.

10 years ago I was..... 17 years old.  A junior in high school.  My life revolved around volleyball, my friends, and weekends.

10 years ago..... I was just starting to decided what I was going to do for the rest of my life.  At that time, it was going to college and become a teacher.  

10 years ago.... I had the best group of girl friends ever.  Honestly, I was so lucky growing up to have so many wonderful friends.  There was no meanness, bullying, cattiness.... we just all got along so well.

10 years ago.....All I wanted for my birthday was clothes, shoes, and a yummy cake... #somethingsneverchange

10 years ago.... I didn't know what the real world was like.  I lived in a little bubble in a small town, sometimes I am so thankful for that.

10 years ago.....I had the greatest, most supportive family..... again, some things never change.

My life has been full of SO many blessings in the past 10 years.  I have met and married my best friend, moved to an amazing area, bought our first home, given the opportunity to be the mother to the best kids a mom could ask for, be able to stay home with them, but also find hobbies that keep me on my toes.

27 is going to be the year of.....just being.  I am really going to try to take this year to calm down a bit, and not sweat the small stuff.  My marriage is in a great place, my kids are healthy and we are all happy.  Less stress, more laughter.  

Today we aren't really celebrating, Matt is in NYC this week.  SO today I am needlessly shopping, eating take out, and hanging with the kiddos.  We will celebrate as a family later this week, and I will recap next week!

Oh, and on my YouTube channel I shared 27 random facts about me, so be sure to check that out!
