  1. Happy Birthday to you and also, I cannot wait to follow along in this next year and see all of these dreams come true! I love the mix of family time but also focusing on yourself. I want to run a 5K this year too. I have missed running! Also, praying big prayers for you this coming year!

  2. what a sweet list! Of course I’m thinking you are pretty darn brave on a couple of these like trying a new hair color haha. Will be looking forward to seeing the new tattoo. Definitely something I’ve had on my mind the past few years .
