Well, it's actually tomorrow (or today, depending on when you read this - July 9th)
It seems like the past year had seen so many different events in my life. When I looked back at all the pictures, I could hardly believe all that has taken place. So I am going to get a little nostalgic and recap the year with pictures - likely most most you have already seen. Tomorrow I will post actual pictures from the b-day celebration. And since it's my blog and my birthday, most of the pictures are of me. How awesomely narcissistic of me.
And though there are certain things for which I cannot find the exact pictures (Milwaukee, Miami, Nolan's wedding), I did my best to recap it all.
Almost exactly a month after my last birthday, I joined my family to watch Devin get married in Rhode Island.
And I didn't just watch - I helped. I actually married them.
And then to Tennesse this past March, to watch my brother Nolan get married.
Of course, this would be one of those events for which I can't seem to find any pictures.
But with his wedding, I was left as the last Girl standing. Yup, all those sorry kids went and got themselves hitched. Suckers.
But, right after Devin's wedding, I got Cheese'ed.

And the running!! Boy did I run. In Chicago on Thanksgiving...
To Miami in January...
I have no idea what happened to these pictures.
To Madison in June....
I became an Ironman. Have I mentioned that?
And then, I gave away a kidney.
Remember "Ruby Red?"
But I got back on the "horse."
And am getting ready for Racine.
Wow. Told ya it seems like a lot. And those are just the major stuff - all the day to day memories will just have to stay in my head. Even with all the ups and downs, this past year was easily the best yet. I am far healthier, mentally and physically, then I was last July 9th. The good has far outweighed the bad, and I look forward to many more of the good.
Now where the hell's the cake?
