twenty-five

Today is my twenty-fifth birthday. It's crazy how quickly this year went by, how many things I was able to accomplish, how much I've changed.
My twenty-fourth year was everything I wanted and more. And while some things didn't go as I thought they would (hey marathon, I'm looking at you), Craig surprised me by asking the most important question.

If you had asked me a year ago what I thought being twenty-four would be like, I wouldn't have been able to even dream the things that happened. I've been lucky enough to make some really wonderful friends this year and strengthen my friendships with others.

So what does twenty-five hold? Honestly, I have no expectations. I know I'll marry my best friend. I know I'll spend as much time as I can with my friends and family. I know I'll do my best to make twenty-five even better than twenty-four.
