today marks the first day of my 24th year. hey now! when did this happen? i’m not still 18?! what is this mess? seriously, almost a quarter of a century has passed in my life! what have i done with it? i feel like i haven’t done HALF the stuff i thought i was going to accomplish by this point. if you would have talked to me when i was 16 i would have told you i’d be married by now, maybe have a kid, and a comfortable job working 9-5. but hey! i’m not in control of my life. God has a greater plan (still trying to figure that whole part out haha) and He is in control. so i’m embracing this crazy life i have (good and the bad) and going with the flow. so here’s to 24 and that it’s a little less crazy than 23, but still an awesome adventure! haha. yeah, that sounds good! 😉
so in honor of my 24th birthday here are 24 (useless, weird, fun, crazy, odd) facts:psssttt!!! if you choose not to read them, you can always scroll to the bottom to find out the winner from yesterday’s giveaway AND checkout what today’s giveaway is!!! 😉
