Thirty-One. Bring it On.

Well, today marks my 31st birthday.  I didn't blog about turning 30 last year.  I was in denial for a few months about that one.  But for 31, I have decided to face it straight on.  

Looking back at this past year, so much of my life has literally turned upside down.  I left my big firm attorney job.  We moved out of our dream home.  I traded credit agreements and mortgages for dirty diapers and sensory boxes.  But, while Justin and I struggled through growing pains in the process, the transition was worth it.  And now, in retrospect, I can look back at 30 and easily name thirty things that I am so amazingly proud of - both big and small.  From celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary to learning how to break down a Maryland blue crab, there is so much that happened this past year that only motivates and inspires me to be positive and optimistic as I turn 31.  Here's hoping that by the end of next year, I can end my list of 31 things I did at 31 still saying that I have no regrets.
