Taking away the doorstop

Today, I remove the stop that is holding the door open on my twenties.

As of midnight Wednesday, it is my 29th birthday, and for the next 365 days, the doorway to my twenties will be swinging steadily toward 30.

And you know what?  Bring it on!

My twenties were great – wonderful college memories, opportunities to travel, a bachelors degree, real paychecks, falling in and out of love, a short detour to a life in sunny California, a surprise career in insurance, marriage, my first “grown-up” house, a baby (or 2 or 5…), a not-so-short-can’t-really-call-it-a-detour move to Tennessee.

So, happy birthday to me!  Let’s see just what fun we can pack into this last year of 20-something!

Happy Birthday, Monica! I've tried posting on facebook, it wouldn't let me; I think I sent you a text this morning, but I wasn't sure if I had your current number. I really wanted to make sure you didn't think I forgot you! Love ya girl! I hope you had a fun day with your boys!
