I am 26 years old

I was born January 2, 1983 in Silver Spring Maryland
I was surprised to have flowers delivered to my door!
Nick and I at dinner

Besides the pretty flowers, Nick also surprised me by making dinner reservations to a fancy restaurant called "Folks Follys" which is a really good steak house. The food was really good, we loved it. After dinner we went to the movies to see "Valkyrie" which was pretty good. As if all of this wasn't enough Nick got me a box of chocolates and two DVDs! I don't know what I did to deserve all of this but I really enjoyed my birthday this year. For a while I felt apprehensive to the fact I was turning 26. I wasn't sure why for a while until a friend reminded me it was because I was now closer to thirty than I was to twenty. Yeah that was definitely what was bugging me, but I am ok now. I still have my youth for four more years. Ok I am joking, thirty is still young right? At least that's what I keep telling myself! Anyways thanks Nick for making my birthday so special. Oh and thanks to the Larsens too for watching our kids even though Friday was our weekend to babysit!

Happy Birthday, Jeannette! 30 had better be young! And I'm going to pretend it is even if I don't believe it myself!
