And so, my 20s are officially in the past. They were eventful. Some highlights:
I graduated from Loyola in 2004.
I got my first and second career-jobs. Second one came with my own office. Which I eventually had to move out of and into a new office.
I moved in with my fiance – this was our apartment for 3 1/2 years before we moved in with a roommate, and then moved in with my parents.
I got married.
I stood up in both of my brothers’ weddings. And the weddings of four of my friends.
I became a Navy Wife.
I adopted a cat. And took like a zillion pictures of her.
I became an Aunt x3. I love these kids so much! If I ever do have children of my own, it will be because they are so sweet and hilarious.
I co-chaired a huge annual local fundraiser for the American Cancer Society. Twice. And I spoke in front of a large crowd and didn’t faint. Twice.
I played in two community bands. (Once a nerd, always a nerd.)
I participated in a charity fashion show at work. And a dance recital with my now-sisters-in-law (and brother).
I ran a half marathon (and then 6 more).
I visited 6 new states (Ohio, Florida, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, New Hampshire).
I re-visited 5 states (Indiana, Michigan, Wisconsin, California, Washington, DC [let’s just count that one]).
I left the country for the first time.
And visited 4 countries (Mexico, Belize, Honduras, the Cayman Islands).
