33 Years

That's how long I've been here ... as of noon today.

Everyone has been calling, texting and emailing ... thanks to you all! It should be a very nice day .... I had kind of forgotten about it, until I got into the shower this morning and remembered why today felt different ... it's my BIRTHDAY!!!!

I usually think about my life on this day ... and this year, it's actually my first birthday after being married. I remember we were with my mom and stepdad last year and Conrad's parents. We were at Steak N Ale a year ago today eating my birthday dinner- and Conrad's mom asked me what I wanted by next year and I looked at Conrad and said TO BE MARRIED ... and everyone laughed. Well, that birthday wish came true! It's been a really really great year ... we had wonderful holidays last year, we went to Hawaii, I got married, had two really nice bridal showers, I held on to a job I love and I think got better at it, I had some trials - but everything ended up being much much better ... we began looking at homes and have decided to build one in the next year ... I think I paid off two or three bills - my family and friends and my sweet baby Blanca are all happy and healthy ... it's been a really nice year ... which is good, following the two hectic and sometimes not so great years before it!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll just be here ... enjoying my special day!
