Wow. I can't believe I am no longer in my 20s. I thought I would have a really hard time with this. But I'm actually okay with it. I'm exactly where I want to be in life and I have no regrets. My 20s were wonderful, amazing, and honestly, a lot of fun!! I accomplished several things on my life's "To-Do List."
- Run a marathon- check! (Austin Motorola, 2003)
- Visit Australia- check! (June 2001)
- Bungee jump- check! (New Zealand 2001)
- Sky Dive- check! (Australia, 2001)
I'm sure my "To-Do" list will grow and I look forward to discovering new goals in life. But I have to admit, my life is pretty wonderful right now and my 20s were very good to me. I graduated college, met and married Matt. He is amazing in every way and I feel so blessed that he chose ME to be his wife! I gave birth to our daughter in my 20s. Of course, she's is beautiful & totally perfect. I was able to do a lot of traveling in my 20s and saw a lot of this world. And of course, I would never forget about our awesome dog, Jaws! Two years ago yesterday I waited in line at the Parker County Animal Shelter for 2 hours in freezing rain to adopt Jaws. He was the best 28th birthday present I could have asked for!
I am so fortunate in so many ways. Moving back to San Antonio has turned out to be such a great decision. I love working for my parents at Acme and I learn so much every day on the job. I am constantly amazed that my entire family can work in the same building, yet we still enjoy spending time with one another on the weekends!! I truly don't think it would be that way for most families. I only hope that I can make my parents proud at Acme. Time will certainly tell. Speaking of Mom & Dad, I cannot thank them enough for everything they have done. I wouldn't be the person I am today without them. You are the most amazing parents and if Matt and I can be half as wonderful as y'all, then Elise will be one lucky girl!
So, I say good-bye to my 20s and I welcome my 30s!! I'm excited to see what they'll bring!
