Twenty-Fourth Year

In a little less than three hours, I will be a quarter of a century old. To begin the celebration of a year older, let’s discuss what made my twenty-fourth year so special.

Twenty-four was a roller coaster. Between my fluctuating job situation and planning a wedding, I was all over the place. Emotionally, financially, and mentally.

For my birthday, I decided it was time to upgrade my ride. I had been driving a Dodge Neon and hated every moment of it. Shortly before turning 24, the battery decided to crap out and the minor fix was the excuse I needed to trade my wheels in. The new ride? A shiny, new Chevy Cruze.  Happy birthday to me!

During the Fall, I took advantage of every opportunity handed to me.

In October, Chris and I traveled to Europe. This marked my first time on an airplane and my first time out of the country. We spent time in Spain, France, and Italy.

I also went skydiving. (Sorry no pic of me falling through the air !)

I rode a mechanical bull in the middle of the street of Savannah.

During the winter, things calmed down for a bit. But once the weather warmed up life picked right back up again.

Spring brought on big changes.

During the month of March, Chris and I moved in together, I started a new job, and I got married. It was a slightly chaotic month.

I went to Costa Rica in April where I saw sloths, toucans, and the Pacific ocean.

I also went to Sweet Life Festival.

In May, I met the band Fun.

And I went to my first professional baseball game.

The start of the summer in June was met with jam-packed weekends. First a trip to Pittsburg to see Girl Talk.

And then a ride in a hot air balloon.

And then Modest Mouse two nights in a row.

The first week in July, I ran my first 5K race. And I met my time goal.

I’d definitely say it was a BUSY year . Honestly, I enjoyed every moment of it. All of the uncertainty, all of the new experiences, and all of the blessings. I wouldn’t change a thing.

Here is hoping that twenty-five will bring an equally amazing year.

  1. That’s amazing. Your twenty-fifth year has a lot to live up to. 🙂 Make the best of it, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

    • I was thinking that too :). There’s always bungee jumping, scuba diving, more countries to visit, races to run, and shows to see so I am hopeful that I can find a way to make it compare.

      Thank you!!

  2. I wanted to do something really special for my 25th…didn’t happen though. My husband was sweet enough to plan a surprise party with all our friends. I am hoping to go out of the country for my 30th or something…
