Today I turn 28. Which means, I survived the curse of the 27s! I enjoyed being 27 and wasn't really looking forward to turning 28, but the time has come.
We went to Florida this weekend for a sunny vacation on the beach. It was absolutely perfect - so relaxing and enjoyable. We met my husband's sister and her boyfriend there and stayed in their grandma's condo in Clearwater. We had this incredible balcony to sit on with a view to die for. Every night, the sun set directly in front of us. Every day we could see things in the ocean to get excited about from our view. I can't get over how awesome it was! The first day we sat at the beach, I kid you not, a shark swam up right in front of us. A man was jogging along the beach and stopped to stare; he said he had only seen one other shark in Clearwater in all the 20 years he's been coming there. It was a small brown shark, but still, IT WAS A SHARK! We also saw several dolphins (two up close while on a boat excursion), a SEA TURTLE and a group of seals swimming! It was glorious.
This past year has been incredible. Since my awesome birthday picnic last year, I've gotten married, honeymooned in Italy and now we've bought a house. What a big year! I'm hoping that this next year will only be better.
I hope you're all having a wonderful Memorial day/holiday weekend.
