Monday was my 26th birthday. It was kind of sad saying goodbye to 25 but I guess growing older is inevitable. On Saturday my sweet friend Mitzi had mentioned that we should go to lunch for my birthday and see if anyone else would be able to come. I invited Lindsey because she is on spring break and I was excited she could go. I was thinking it would be a fun little lunch with the three of us. I was so surprised that Mitzi put together a party of 8 made up of the sweetest women I know. I don't know why I was surprised....if anyone can gather a last minute group it is Mitzi. Anyway, we had a great time eating and visiting and Mary Selwyn loves to be out and about. I felt really special. I told Shay it was like my own little birthday party. It definitely made my day. It was also just another reminder of how blessed we are to be in this town. I am so lucky to have these amazing friends and christian women in my life. They have been so sweet to us and really taken us under their wing. They have loved us, supported us, mentored us and become our family. I know I can call any of them anytime for anything! That is such a luxury since we are away from family. I am so thankful for these amazing women the Lord has brought into my life. They have taught me so much, especially how to love your friends with such a sweet, sweet love.
The night ended with a nice dinner with Shay. It was a very nice 26th birthday. I couldn't have asked for a better day. I'm sure I will be shocked at just how quickly this year will also go by and I will be writing about birthday number 27!!!
