Less than 24 Hours til I'm 24

So long 23! What an awful age. I learned lots of life lessons when I was 23. I hope I learned them well and never have to repeat those lessons. As I thought about the last year I noticed the common trend that I tried a lot of stuff out of my comfort zone. I also noticed that not many of those things worked out well. A lot of little failures really.

But I did live my "live list" that I have in my journal. I checked off or halfway checked off a lot of stuff regardless of the outcome. Which is great! At one point this year I told Brad "I've got to stop checking stuff off my live list or I'm going to have nothing to live for!" Is that awesome or what?!?
ex: Paint, plant a garden, learn the bottom hand on the piano, bake a pie from scratch, coach polevault, have food storage, save money for Kaci, make Christmas presents for my nieces and nephews, do baby signs with my baby... etc

You are adorable! I love the photo. And way to check stuff off the live list! I think that is awesome! You can always make another one if you get them done too fast, better than having nothing to live for, haha. Happy Birthday!!!
