My 28th Birthday

Today is my 28th birthday! Where have the years gone? I believe it is only natural on your birthday to reflect on where you are in your life, where you thought you would be and where you want to go next. I am so blessed to be where I am at 28 and couldn't be happier! My 28th year will be another year of new travels, new adventures, new challenges and new memories.
