Twenty-five.  How you view this age really depends on where you are on your life journey.  As a senior in college you might be ready to reach 25, itching to have a job and live on your own, fully independent.  As a soon to be retiree, you might look back on 25 with fondness, remembering how the whole world sat in front of you, just waiting for you to choose your path.  To a kid on the playground, 25 might make you want to crinkle up your nose and exclaim, “Ewwwww…that’s old!”  No matter what your age, we can all agree that 25 is a noteworthy age.  It is a quarter of a century old…OLD being the key word in that sentence!

Last Saturday, January 14, I turned 25 years old.  (HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!)  To tell you the truth, this age brings on mixed feelings.  On one hand I feel like I am leaving my younger years behind.  I have hit my mid twenties and I am on a train rushing full speed towards 30!  At this point, I am looking back and wishing I had asked God what he had in store for my life earlier.  Imagine if I had started my photography business three years ago.  Where would I be now?  On the other hand, I am thankful to be where I am.   At 25, I know what I want to do with the rest of my life.  I have a loving husband and family, a roof over my head, and friends that care about me.  For all of these things, I am truly grateful.  

Every year introduces a whole new set of adventures and challenges.  I am sure this one will be no different. Whether you think I am an old fart or a young chicklet, I can honestly say I am happy at 25!  2012...BRING IT ON! 


  1. I see who is eating most of that Serendipity sundae! Love you both!

  2. Amy,
    You accomplished a lot in the first quarter century of your life and I know with God's gentle guidance you will accomplish even more the next 25 years. The first 25 years I was blessed to share your path and have a chance to carry you and hold your hand. I am looking forward to watching you on your path the next 25 years with great pride and love.
