26 years 364 days

Well this is it. The final day of my twenty-sixth year. September 5, 2012. I am officially 26 years 364 days old.

When I started this blog one year ago, I had no idea what I was doing but I did know I’d enjoy the ride. Last night I went through all my old posts and realized: mission accomplished!

Twenty-six was full of fabulousness — I have 20/15 vision, Baby Mikayla was born, I got my queen-sized bed, Lin & I have eaten very well, I’ve traveled more than I realized, I’ve loved every girls weekend, I’ve learned a ton and I’ve really grown as a person. A perfect journal of my 26th year.

The big changes are the scary ones.

The end of my twenty-sixth year was the start of change. Big change. I decided to focus on my career and I recently quit Groupon. Scary — leaving my friends, my comfort zone to explore what I can do leveraging my skill set to make a difference.

The start of my twenty-seventh year will continue this trend of change. I start my new job, my dream job next Monday. I will be a Marketing Specialist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America – Midwestern Regional Medical Center in Zion, Illinois. I’m bringing my car to Chicago. I’m moving — in Chicago or out of Chicago — something that I haven’t really wrapped my head around yet.

As I figure out my life, I can breathe because I’m certain that everything will work out and I really do have so much to smile about.

Here’s to my 27th year!
