Quarter Century

Today I turned 25. I don't feel any different. My mom said that I'm suppose to be mature now. I'll let you know when that happens. Mawahahaha! Daniel made me key lime cup cakes that are amazing. He surprised me earlier this month with a pair of my favorite Teva flip flops to replace that ones that I lost last summer in lake my parents live on. Today we had me play the hot and cold game to find my other birthday present. But he switched hot and cold on me so cold was actually closer. Anyway we got me a new sewing book that I've wanted. He had hid it in the freezer. What a funny kid. Daniel asked me last night what my top 5 moments were in my first quarter century and they were:
1. Getting married to Daniel of course
2. Riding my motorcycle on a track day at the Mid Ohio Race track
3. Our Italy/Switzerland trip last summer
4. Swimming in our favorite swimming spot in Idaho (random I know but it is just what stuck out to me at that moment)
5. Cosmo!

I have had so many more amazing moments in my life. Those were just the first ones that came to my mind. I feel really grateful for the people in my life and the blessing that I've received. Thank you for all your birthday wishes and yes it was a 'Happy' birthday.
