My 28th Year

Each year when my birthday rolls  around, I cannot believe another year has passed. The time between 27 and 28, a lot has happened:

I traveled to 6 different countries and a few places around the US. 
Moved out of Husband's and my first apartment where we started out marriage. 
Purchased our first home. Yay for first-time mortgage holders. 
Grew our little family with a sweet little pup, Braxton. 
Received a promotion at work. 
And so much more in between!

In my 28th year, I am going to release my restless soul, and it is going to be incredible. I am going to expand my boundaries. I am going to create and design when my heart speaks. I am going to write when the words are in my head. I am going to experiment in the kitchen to open new worlds of flavor. I am going to launch. I am not going to hold back. I am just a two mere years away from thirty and there is no sense in holding back the true me. Life is short and goes so quickly. I am going to allow my soul to be free - in whatever manner it may need. There is no use in waiting...Here I am world. 

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows and the beauty of a woman only grows with the passing years. - Audrey Hepburn

So here's to a passionate 28th year. Cheers!


  1. You are beautiful inside and out. Take a moment to read Proverbs 31:10-31. The last verse says charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. ��

  2. Great thoughts lead to powerful new goals! You are a winner and will do wonderful things in your life. Grandpa and Grama

  3. Happy Birthday! I am so looking forward to what you release and share in the next 365 days! You are one of the most creative and well articulated people I know!
