Today I turned 25. JD came home from work and surprised me with this. He wants me to be cool like him.
It is the prettiest skateboard I have ever seen. The print is called Grandma’s Couch, which is totally fitting. I took it for a spin in the living room.
Then I went outside. The neighbors probably think I am crazy because this is what I looked like trying to ride it in the driveway.
After crashing in into the garage door and making a dent, I started to get the hang of it. Can’t wait to ride around with JD, but first… I need a helmet!
PS: The past few birthdays I have been compiling lists of what I want to accomplish in the coming year. It is a wonderful guideline to plan my adventures and goals. It’s also really fun to check things off as you go and see how many you can complete in 12 short months.
This year JD and I worked on a lot of this list together on the drive up to Flagstaff for his bday a few weeks back. Here is some of the list for this year. There are a few more biggies that I’ll be posting as the year progress. It looks like Arizona exploring, exciting changes and cocktail-ing are going to be trending in my life. I can’t wait to start tackling the list and sharing my progress!
