24.. Does that sound kind of like Mid-Twenties to you?!

I'm so glad that we don't have to go through this life alone..

Although I have been 24 for a couple of solid weeks now.. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the sweet wishes. For the cards and calls and skyping and texts and messages.. 
that is why I look forward to birthdays.
It really still means a lot to me, I am one lucky girl.
& I sure love and am grateful for all of you sweet loved ones that make me feel that way.

 And I have to say that being 24 is actually looking pretty good.. 

I mean really what age/day/year could be bad when it starts out at 6 am looking like this..

 Then after being completely spoiled and loved on all day.. 

[Blake just went to one class and then played hooky-even after my trying to convince him to stay- to spend the rest of the day with me eating more than any normal human should and taking me to my favorite places]

We got to do one of the things that [if you can believe it without laughing at me] I was very most excited to live in a house for...

Giving candy out to Trick or Treaters!

This was the first year we have gotten any [& thank goodness we got some.. after buying candy and being excited for this I have to say that I might have cried a little if no one came] and I think I was more excited than the little kids.

After living in an apartment for the past 5 ish years of my life I love having our own little home and getting to play grown up a little bit. 



I will definitely say that Halloween/Birthdays/Life has changed a lot through the years.. and it's hard not to reflect on it on birthdays as you start a new age and chapter of your life.
But I genuinely feel so blessed with life, with all of the wonderful people in my life, with all of the experiences that Blake and are having right now, and for all things that we are and that have lead me to be where I am right now and I can't wait to see what the next year brings.

[Check back with me though next year when I hit 25.. I may not be so enthusiastic to start that new older sounding mile stone. :) ]

Thank you again my sweet selfless husband, dear family, wonderful in-laws, and grandmas, and my great friends near and far..

I hope you know how much I genuinely love you!
