Birthday Brights!

Today is a big day around here- it’s my birthday!! I’m a huge fan of my birthday (and all celebrations in general) so I’m pretty excited for today!

It’s always nice to look at a birthday as a fresh start. To be honest, 27 was a hard year. I was in a very unstable relationship which ended after 6 years- and there was a lot of “moving on” that had to be done. There were times I struggled with seeing God’s plan and I felt as if I had been forgotten. I questioned where my life was headed and what I really wanted. But y’all, God is faithful and the past few months he has been working in HUGE ways and I am seeing his plan so clearly! I received a promotion into a position that I absolutely love & now am able to travel. I’ve grown wonderful friendships. I’ve had the time of my life in the Junior League Presidency and been opened to many new experiences. I’ve deepened my faith and seen myself become a better person who is more thoughtful and prayerful in my decision making. And I know it’s all been leading me to this… a fresh new year full of adventure, memories, and of course- celebrations!

So bring on the “late twenties” and cheers to the big 2-8! I’m ready to say hello to the best year yet 🙂

    Happy Birthday Gentry! I hope that it is a wonderful day!! God has great things for you. Getting out of those unstable/toxic relationships is so hard. It can feel so safe and seems so scary when you are out there on your own. But then you find yourself instead surrounded by friends and God shows you his plan was never what you thought, but something BETTER!!! Have a great 28th birthday and here's to a great year!!
