I'm 25 Now

Over the weekend I was in Georgia with my family. I had to go down to look for a suit for my dad and deliver my sister's dress to her as well. It was nice to be with them for part of my birthday. Of course I love to see Asher, so that was a nice birthday treat. I really needed to get back to South Carolina though, so I left that afternoon and headed home. On route I had a flat tire, which was not a nice birthday treat.....but it all turned out okay.
I have had all kinds of tire issues over the last few months. So getting a flat tire was no shock to me at all.
Since I was out of town on my actual birthday Shea and Angela planned to take me out on Monday.
Last year on my birthday I ended up having to work and there was no time to really celebrate. Shea asked me then what I would like to do next year since we would be in Charleston and there is so much more to do here. I told him that I would want to spend the day downtown and have a nice dinner at one of the restaurants where we can eat on the rooftop. In planning the day, my birthday wish from last year didn't cross my mind.
We went downtown and walked the market together. It is one of my favorite things to do downtown. I love the different homemade things that vendors sell. There is always great art work and photography.
As we were walking to the restaurant where we planned to eat we passed one of the restaurants that has rooftop access. Of course we had to eat there. It is such a small thing but it was a real blessing too, like the Lord just put that birthday wish down and made it come true. It amazes me when He is reveals His love in that way. I love that He cares about the details of my life. He truly enjoys me! He definitely made it happen.....Shea wouldn't remember (that's for sure).
We had a really nice time. Looking over this beautiful city as I sat there with my future husband (3 weeks to go) I just took it all in......thinking wow this is my life. I am a blessed girl! The Lords has given what I always wanted in Shea and my new family. God is incredible! So another birthday in the books...defiantly one of my best.
