An Oldie But a Goodie

I recently found this on my computer. I barely remember writing this years ago. So many of these things remain true today - those that don't I have highlighted. It is crazy how much and little can change in 5 years or more.

Here are the updates:

I now have a tattoo  - me and my mom went together and got them for her 60th birthday (That will get it's own separate blog) -

I am now a mother -

I go to church now -

I still want to build my dream home but I don't know that it will be on Cherry Grove Road anymore - Nathan has decided that 12 acres isn't enough - he wants more like 40! What am I going to do with him?! :)

I am glad I wrote all this down and I may just have to write another one, someday...
