Stars & Stripes











My entire life I have always shared my birthday.
When I was little I had no idea I shared it with another country I just knew I shared it with my best friend. 

Now that I know about U.S.A stealing my thunder too...it's just annoying! I mean U.S.A gets fireworks for it's birthday. So jealous. So rude. Share the love! 
I have spent exactly ONE birthday watching fireworks and oh it was glorious.
Sparklers are close enough though ya? no?..ok.

Now down to the point. 

Twenty.Four.

When I look back on the last year it's like so much has happened and not happened all at the same time.
I worked two jobs. Moved two more times. Survived another Canadian winter. 
I went on a lot of new adventures. Travelled. Put a million and one miles on my poor car. Got a seriously needed new car.
I made great amazing wonderful new friends. Grew closer in already existing relationships. Watched the cutest baby in the world turn into the most adorable toddler in the world.
I made tough decisions..some right..some wrong.
I didn't exactly get to where I wanted but I'm getting there! And I am grateful for every experience I have had this past year. In one way or another it all helped me grow. Mostly I am grateful for the people who have been there with me. I love every.single.one. of you.

Most of all, I look forward to this coming year. Twenty four is going to be my year. I can feel it.
I look forward to new opportunities, new challenges, new decisions and most importantly new adventures.It's bound to have its challenges but with that I know it will have some major blessings.
It's just going to be a good year. I know it.

Happy 4th of July... However you are celebrating it! I'll just pretend we are all celebrating together.
&
Could you send some fireworks my way...I mean...I would really love that.

Now excuse me while I go eat anything my little heart desires...because I hear calories don't count today.

xoxo
