Today I Am Thirty-Something'ish

When someone asks me how old I am going to be this year or today, I keep saying a year younger. It isn't that I feel old, I literally just can't remember {a sign of getting old lol?!}. 

In my thirty-something'ish years, I have lived in six states and some amazing cities including Austin and San Francisco (both more than once!), traveled as far as Cartagena, Columbia to Innsbruck, Austria, walked on a glacier in Alaska, visited almost every Caribbean island (I *will* see you someday soon Turks & Caicos), worked and grown my public relations loving brain for over 10 years at some of the most amazing companies in the world, made many decisions without thinking {which equaled awesome learning experiences}, had my {faux} blonde hair turned green on many occasions {that was traumatic, right mom!} and been a thousand miles from nowhere a couple of times in a Jeep with my Yorkie, Harley {perfect moments in time}. 

I have had three wonderful furry companions that have defined these years in some way. My wonderful childhood dog Puffer and my best bud for 17 amazing years, Harley who I still think of and miss every darn day. And now, I am so fortunate to have my little love Lola, who came into my life through my Aunt Linda. She sweetly put up with being bullied by my little alpha Yorkie Harley until age three. Even though Lola eats my shoes and prefers lizards or birds to dog food, life without her would be boring. Through my dogs I have learned to be more responsible, patient and kind. And, with them love is in my life at every moment no matter where or what I am doing! 

Most of all, I have had the best friends and family that anyone could ask for. Thank you to my parents for ensuring I have had a happy thirty-something'ish years. I have never met two people that would do anything for anyone else-even if it has meant sacrificing. Thank you for teaching me how to love unconditionally. 

This year, I promise myself to continue to live this Abraham Lincoln quote! Happy birthday to me and thank you for reading has been amazing over these past few months to meet so many new friends through blogging. :)
