thirty two for thirty two

32 years ago today, I came into this world at 9:46 pm. I was 6 weeks early, weighing in at only a little over 4 1lbs.  A libra I was meant to be.

32 years!?!!? I kinda can’t believe it. I don’t feel like I should be 32. I can’t believe it’s been almost 10 years since I graduated from Auburn (although when I see how young the students are or one calls me ma’am, I am quickly reminded).  It feels like yesterday that I was still living in Mobile, and that was 14 years ago. Time has flown, I’ve got a great family, wonderful friends, and a lot of happiness.  I can’t complain or worry about the number. I’ll say 32 years young!

I feel incredibly lucky to have this life. To be me. I am a strong, independent, loving, happy woman. I have accomplished so much and look forward to the years to come.

In honor of my big 32, here are 32 things that make me happy (thanks Amanda and Laura for the idea)

  1. the Fall
  2. anything and everything pumpkin flavored
  3. hoodie and Ugg boots weather
  4. breakfast in bed
  5. cooking-especially dinners with P
