Birthday Reflection

Idaho Birthday

 Well, I am now officially 24 years old. uff da. I had so many cards, call, texts, and Facebook messages it was unbelievable. Thank you to all who made my day so special. Andrew is currently doing the dishes as part of my birthday present :) He is never home for very long, so doesn't do them very often, a great present! I was looking back at my last few birthday's and so much has changed in the past few years, for #23 I was in Idaho, #22 I was in Trout Lake, #21 I was in Madison. I feel like quite the jet-setter!
