I can't believe it's 2010. I also can't believe that I am on the verge of turning 23. How in the world did that happen? I haven't been a teenager for 3 years now. Insanity. Some days I feel like I'm still 17. It's the strangest thing.
I was just going through old pictures and these ones in particular brought back some spectacular memories and I thought I would share. The last 4 years have been a bit crazy and SO much has transpired within them. Life has changed drastically from year to year and I mean, DRASTICALLY. I can only imagine what these next few years hold. I'm so blessed and fortunate to have experienced so much for my young age. I've been to 2 countries, traveled the states numerous times, been in 2 weddings, had one boyfriend, learned another language, played music, completed a plethora of journals, learned so much about myself, realized how important family is, discovered who my dearest and truest friends were, fell in love all over again and more importantly, discovered that life without my creator is so pointless and mundane.
I'm very much looking forward to this next season in my life. I feel it will be a season of tremendous growth, wonder and life. I'm so blessed.
Here's to many more to come...
