It’s My Birthday! And I’ll Cry If I Want to…

Can’t believe it’s already my birthday again!  Every year we try to do a theme to make it more fun and memorable. We did Adult Prom last year, karaoke night where everyone dresses up as a music icon two years ago, and 80s rollerskating the year before that.



Since we’re on the west coast this year, we decided to celebrate in Vegas!  Pictures to come. ;)


Here were just a few big milestones that happened over the past year:

  • moved to Los Angeles driving a giant truck towing a car cross country!
  • led worship and became part of the OTC family. First time church actually felt like family.
  • hiked the inca trail for 4 days to Machu Picchu! The most physically challenging thing I’ve ever done.
  • went bungee jumping in New Zealand. Checked that one off the list!

Things I Hope for this next year:

  • I hope I get wiser. Even if it’s just a little.
  • Learn to be a supportive wife – it’s a painful process letting go of your own dreams to gain a shared dream.
  • Come out of my shell more and meet good people in LA.
  • Eat a lot of LA food.

Also, this year  I’m writing a letter to myself to open in 10 years.  I’m really curious to see how my dreams and hopes shift and change over the years.  That’s what I love about life – that it is fluid. Here’s to… turning 21 (again)! ;)
