I got married at twenty, became a pastor's wife, finished college, then moved to Scotland for Garrick to pursue his PhD, and got a job at the University of St Andrews. I hear comments like, "you're just a baby," or "you're so young," regularly. I'm typically not offended and take these statements as reverse compliments.
Maybe I feel my age finally matches what I'm doing. I feel confident, grateful, content, and excited about this life I've been given. And, for the next two months, I am older than my handsome sidekick, who is still just twenty four. ;) Enough introspection, here is my birthday in photos:
On the Saturday before my birthday, Garrick and I rode the X60 to Pittenween. We enjoyed breakfast at the Cocoa Tree, Sea Glass hunting on the beautiful beaches, and finally, stopped at the Woolly Brew to spend a generous gift voucher from my co-workers.
Garrick planned a lovely party with many of our friends in St Andrews. The beautiful Liana put her amazing baking talent to work and we devoured the chocolatiest chocolate cake I've ever eaten and coconut cupcakes. We laughed, ate, and socialised, fitting all those pictured above in our wee flat. I could barely sleep that night, buzzing from the excitement of the day, or the cake, who knows.
