    Hi! Just came across your blog a little bit ago and it is great! I celebrated my 35th last Friday, but I do share it with my oldest daughter. We LOVE it! Reading through your list, we have alot in common:#6 I worked at Arby’s (16 yrs my first job) where I met my husband which led to #10 (20yrs). I also have a hard time asking for help #26 but am so very happy to be a Christian #32!! I am gluten free as well. God bless!

      Hi Tiffany,

      Happy Birthday back to you! I pray your 35th year is filled with many special memories and blessings. I look forward to this year because there are lots of big changes happening in my life.

      Yep good old Arby’s I cannot eat there ever because of working there, but then I am not really into fast food at all these days. Not good for the butt and hips region 😉 lol. I think that is great how we have so much in common it is a small world and thank you to commenting. Please post on my page wall would love to get to know you better.

      Hugs and Happy Holidays,
