It’s a Wonderful Life

I am turning 29 tomorrow and I took some time this week to look back over the amazing year it has been. My 28th year will definitely go down in the history books as a life changing year!

I became a mother on June 1…

And discovered a depth of love I never knew possible.

I went back to work and became a working mom…which left all of us a bit exhausted at first.

My parents sold my childhood home

We celebrated the Mini Athlete’s first Christmas

I ran my first (and second!) half marathons…

And now you can add this to quite possibly the most amazing year of my life:

The newest little athlete…due 12/02/12!

Looks like my 29th year is going to be a pretty exciting one as well!
