5 years from now

i asked Ashley a question on her blog yesterday. where do you see yourself in 5 years? mainly because i've been asking myself that question a lot lately. probably more than i did when i was 25.  i recently turned 30 and a lot of my friends have also. 

this of course puts me on a course for memory lane

 how did i go from this girl

to this girl

how is that my friends and i are old enough to be married and own houses and have babies. aren't we still 21?

if you asked me when i was 25 where i would be in 5 years i would have probably said:

working in marine science, specifically with sea turtles
living somewhere on the coast of virginia
i would have at least one dog

i would NOT have said that i'd be
with two dogs
living in south carolina
working in an office

BUT this life is perfect for where i am right now. it fits. every day a new piece gets introduced that let's me know i'm following the right path. 

so where do i see myself 5 years from now at 35!

matt and i will still be living in south carolina
we will hopefully own a home
we will still have 2 dogs, maybe 3
we will still not have children

all of this makes me think about how fast time flies by. and makes me think of this song. i love alan jackson. 

so where do you see yourself in 5 years???

I love that song!! Strangely enough, I have no earthly idea where I see myself in five years. I wish I knew though! :)

I wonder ALL the time how I am old enough to be someone's wife and have friends having babies!! It's insane, lol
