Clay and I went on a run together yesterday in the warm heat, and he asked me what my top highlights of being 26 were. I was puffing up the hill and running out of breath as I told him things I loved during the year, but I came to realize just how very lucky I am to reach each new age.
The way he sees it, you can do one of two things: feel crestfallen about the years past and dwell on things missed or unaccomplished, or be exuberant about the things you were able to experience and learn, looking forward to the years ahead.
I'll choose the latter. :)
When my parents were in town, my mom found this ridiculously easy cheesecake recipe to make that has about only 4 ingredients and only requires the fridge to solidify.
You should try it! Clay and I've been practically fighting to the death for every last piece. I figure since it's my birthday, I'll win the last morsel. ;)
Have a happy day!
