Feels So Right...

You know that feeling...
When you wake up, knowing that you are loved. The sun seems brighter, the birds are singin louder, and Mama's smile is even lovlier.

Today I turned 18 years old. Most kids, once they turn this age, are so excited about being an adult. They use it as an excuse to spend more time away from their families.
Now that is sad.

I had the best birthday a girl could ask for.
It started last night. Makayla and I stayed up late watching old movies. Then we woke up late this morning and all headed up to Helen. We had a wonderful time, but my favorite place was the old Sautee general store. They had some great antiques, and the building was beautiful.

The trip was nice, but what I am most thankful for is my family. I am so blessed to have spent 18 years of my life with the most wonderful people in the world. God is so good!
