Saying Goodbye to Thirty-Two...

Thursday, June 26, 2014

Today is my last day as a thirty-two year old. Tomorrow I wake up another year older. But it's hard to say goodbye to thirty-two, because this year has been the best year of my life, with the exception of losing my sweet papaw.

We kicked off the start of thirty-two by meeting Stephanie (aka Plain Chicken) and Tadd for the first time at Chuys. It began the start of a great friendship, and it was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday. And little did I know, I was pregnant with AC.

On July 1st, we found out I was pregnant! Talk about the best birthday gift, ever. I'm not sure any gift could ever top that!

We celebrated the Mr's birthday with my parents in the Smoky Mountains.

We got to share with the world in August that Baby Sowell was due to join our family in March of 2014.

We found out our baby was a GIRL in October. And we were convinced she was a boy until the day before our ultrasound.

We celebrated Thanksgiving with family and friends, our last with my papaw.

We got baby gifts (that we asked for) for Christmas, visited my grandmother and spent most of our week in Meridian at the hospital visiting my papaw.

We began 2014 laying my sweet papaw to rest.

We celebrated the upcoming birth of AC with a huge baby shower at my home church in Meridian with family and friends.

And in February, yep, not March... we welcomed the most perfect, precious, and biggest blessing of our life so far into the world.

We celebrated our first Easter as a family of three.

I had a Mother's Day I'll never forget with the dedication of AC.

And we celebrated the Mr's first Father's Day.

Thirty-two was more than I could have ever asked for. And I'm so thankful to have all these memories of such a special year. I'm praying thirty-three is another wonderful year for our family.


  1. Happy Birthday, Joy!!! I am so glad that you will be ringing in 33 with little AC!

  2. Hope you had a great birthday! Love that pink pumpkin.


Thanks for taking a moment to read the Sowell Life.
