I had a Birthday

It seems kind of weird that I’ve been alive for 24 years. I used to think that was old, but now it feels young.  My dear Watson and I realized the other day that I’m only 6 years away from 30, and 6 years ago I was 18.  18 is way young, and 30 seems so grown-up. I had a great birthday with many birthday wishes from all the people I love most; family, life-long friends and co-workers. The best surprise of all was when I came home from mutual my bff Jenny jumped out from my living room. She's been in Georgia for 2 years so I don't get to see her much and had no idea she was in Utah. Thank you everyone for thinking of me today! 

2 weeks ago we celebrated our Anniversary – 2 years of marriage.  Time flies.

We had an awesome week last week at the Porter Family Reunion.  Hopefully I’ll have pictures to share soon. 

My dear Watson had an allergic reaction last week. Swollen ears, and tongue and eventual difficulty breathing. He passed out and hyperventilated at the Dr.’s office and the paramedics came. We’re not exactly sure what he’s allergic to, but we think it might be some shampoo he used at our reunion. We don’t know where it came from, it was just left in the bathroom and he used it. We didn’t know he was allergic to shampoo (if that’s really the culprit). He also went hiking the day before and had strep throat, so it really could be anything.

I’ve been so nervous that it’s going to happen again. I have an epi pen and Benadryl in my purse all the time now, just in case. Mostly I'm just grateful he's alive and that we were at the Dr.'s office surround by people who knew how to help him.  

Not a good picture of either of us, but this was our Anniversary. 

A giant moose we saw on the way back from the family reunion at Timberlakes in Heber. There were moose all over the place during our trip.

  1. Hope you had a great birthday! I wanted the kids to call and sing you happy birthday and then spaced it! I texted you that night, but then it occurred to me that your phone probably wasn't working. Anyways, we love you and hope it was awesome! 24 is a great age. I met Ben when I was 24! I'd like to say I was 24 still:)


Thanks for visiting! Leave me a message...I love them.
