  5. Happy Birthday, girl!!! I love this idea for a birthday post, but I can completely emphathize; I’m not sure I’d be able to come up with 25 facts (turning 25 in June… ahh!). #24 has me written all over it, by the way (Florida does that to you!). Stopping by from SITS and wishing you a very special day! I’d love for you to stop by and say hi if you get the chance.
