January 14th, 2011 marks Brenna's 24th birthday. She has a few things she'd like to share with you all.

Happy Friday to everyone!

Today is a double-whammy, of sorts, it's my favorite day of the week and my favorite day of the year!

So I'm giving you all an "e-High Five" right now!

WOW! It's amazing how fast time really flies by.  I remember being a little girl thinking what I would be like when I was 20.  I thought I'd be married with kids and I remember thinking how "big" I would be.  Then, when actually was 20, remember thinking "Wow! I not as tall or big as I thought I'd be, nor am I ready to be married with kids." Just shows how wonderful the journey of life is.

Well, I've always been a planning, I don't like surprises, I like plans so, naturally, when I was 20 I tried to imagine the future and where I'd be when I was 24.  Let me tell you, life has a funny way of working things out and placing you in locations, situations and messes you could never imagine.  It's weird to write and say that I'm actually doing what I dreamed of when I was a little girl and first saw Katie Couric on the "Today Show."  How cool is that?

Over the past  years, I've moved out on my own, moved to different towns, worked numerous jobs, met hundreds of people, lost a few friends, gained some new ones and learned so much from everyone in my life. One thing I've realized, everyone in your life plays an important role in your path.  Whether you like or know it, you learn so much from people who surround you. 

The beauty of life is you have NO IDEA where you'll be!

So embrace life... surround yourself with interesting and positive people.. live out your dreams..and always, ALWAYS believe in yourself!
