...just kidding. Today is my 25th birthday. HOLY CRAP. I'm a quarter century old! Three of my great friends came into Baton Rouge to spend an awesome birthday with me along with my parents. I am too blessed. My mom tried crossfit this morning! She came to a free intro class at Red Stick Crossfit and she said she was dying, but I've got a good feeling that she'll be back for more :) I've spoken a bunch about how this year has been really difficult for me and today's events were supposed to be very different. For those of you who don't know, I was engaged and today was the day we were supposed to get married. Unfortunately, we broke up and--at the time--I felt like my birthday (and my life) would never be able to be happy again. Thankfully, due to the amazing support of my friends and family, I am doing so well. I have achieved goals I didn't know I could. Pursing a master's degree, teaching, crossfitting, and I'm happy.
