HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JOCELAYNA!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!! Aside from Valentine’s Day, my birthday is my favorite holiday (yes it’s holiday, don’t debate me). School was cancelled today, so Spring break came a day early; what a great gift from God! When I turned 25 I wrote 25 things I had learned in my 25 years of living, which you can read here. This year I have decided to write 27 things I’m hoping for in my 27th year of life. Some are things I‘ve done before, some are personal, some are free, some are super expensive, some require commitment, some will be fun, some will scare me, but all of them will make me look back and say year 27 was everything and more. So in no particular order, here it goes:

  1. Buy a house
  2. Be near completion of my teaching certification class
  3. Visit Las Vegas, NV
  4. Ride a horse
  5. Bake an edible cake (it’s a long, dry story)
  6. Have an amazing Vacation Bible School at my church
  7. Blog at least once a month
  8. Dress like my Pinterest board
  9. Finish writing my book
  10. Visit Susan in Cleveland, MS
  11. Become an official godmother! (I’ll write about that soon)
  12. Do spoken word
  13. Get a massage
  14. Go on a roller coaster
  15. Fall in love
  16. Go camping
  17. Go to the beach
  18. Meditate
  19. Eat at local restaurants
  20. Attend Gina’s wedding
  21. Visit Louisville, KY
  22. Make pottery
  23. Buy my mom something she really wants
  24. Get a new phone
  25. Show up for a friend who needs me
  26. Say ‘I love you’ more often
  27. Inspire a child to be themselves

Psalms 71:14 But I will hope continually, and will yet praise thee more and more.
