Today I turn 26.
It’s crazy how much can happen in a year. Relationships that develop, friendships that grow, lessons I’ve learned, the deepening of my faith, and how I’ve settle more and more into who I was created to be.
My friend Jordan told me to meet her for a drink on Saturday and that afterward we had dinner reservations for my birthday. Little did I know, she actually had gathered all our friends to surprise me. I’m not a big birthday person, but words cannot describe how loved I felt last night. These people that I’ve known for such a short time, are so much more than friends. In this big city, far from home…they’re family and I feel super grateful for them.
Thank you to all my loving friends who have sent birthday gifts and wishes and to my amazing momma and brothers, I feel so insanely loved. Tonight, my nursing school framily is taking me out to dinner at Peacefood Cafe and I’m so excited. Ya’ll know how much I love some PF carrot cake.
