Over the last three years of blogging (yes, THREE years), I have had some pretty good birthday posts (here, here, and here).  I feel like this year should be something really special seeing as how I'm hitting the quarter-century mark.  Alas, don't get your hopes up too high. 

This has been a big year for me - as I have spent pretty much the entirety of it growing a person and preparing to become a parent.  This has been our first year living in our home.  My best friend got married.  My parents moved to their dream home (which I still have yet to see!).  My brother's first-born turned 1.  My sister-in-law brought a[nother] beautiful baby girl into the world.  Geoff and I celebrated our 4th anniversary. 

Yes, it's been a great year. 

So, although this post isn't as awesome as my previous birthday posts, I hope it will do.  Each year my life seems to just be getting better and better.  And now that little "Ace" is getting ready to join us, I can't think of anything more wonderful to look forward to in my 25th year then becoming a mom and watching this little guy grow up. 

Have a piece of cake on my behalf this weekend.  I'm going to make mine with marshmallow fondant. 


  1. Dream house won't be complete until my whole family is siting around the table having Christmas fondue! Happy 25th my beautiful girl.

  2. I, too, want to wish yiou a happy birthday! And I am so happy fr your new litle baby. I do feel bad for your Mom as she will want to stay with you longer and then she will be so homesick for you all. I am glad that you will be together at Christmas time.

  3. I hope you had a great birthday :)

    ps remember that time when we made fondant?
