The Golden One

It's finally here!  The day I've been waiting for since I was a little girl 25. When I found out at 20, no one took me seriously (duh), I looked forward to 25 (because, hey, if you are allowed to rent a car...you must be an adult). When 25, rolled around and I still felt like a "kid", I then looked forward to my 30th. My 30th birthday also happens to be my Golden Birthday (the birthday when you turn the same age as your birthdate)...so that makes it even more special.  I look forward to spending the evening with my church family at Thrive around some of my closest friends.

And since I'm sure I'll always be considered a youngin' to some or an oldie to others...

Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, 
in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. 
[1 Timothy 4:12]

Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. 
[Titus 2:3-5]

Trenton at 10 Months


He finally started crawling, the normal way, this past Monday.  His two front teeth broke on through the past two days as well, which has been rough on me him.  He loves his baby cookies, apple-sweet potato food, and baby mum mums, okay, he just likes food in general.

5 Years & Loving It





It's been 5 years of wedded bliss for Mike and I!  I love this man.  Really, I couldn't have chosen or even imagined a better leader for myself and our family.

We decided to spend our anniversary down in San Diego, a little getaway with the whole family.  I forgot to take pictures and document our time in pictures, but sometimes you just have to enjoy the moment in real like and not through the screen of an iPhone.

I did capture these shots at the zoo though...enjoy.













Sorry, I wanted to include all the shots of Miles on the turtle because I love his expression in each shot.
