a few days ago, i turned 25.  25 sounds pretty solid to me – like you can’t get away with some of the things you did in your early twenties, like you’re really, truly an adult.  [as if turning 18, 21, or getting married wasn’t adult enough. !]  i’m not against this by any means, though i don’t really enjoy this month until kraig’s birthday in which i am three years older than him… =]  i’m glad to be 25.  and being 25 sounds like it brings more responsibility, and i want to make goals that i can tangibly accomplish.  i know these kinds of things go around on the internet, but i just figured i’d try it for myself.  it’d be really good to remember to check up on myself as the year progresses and see how i’m doing!  i also think it’d be really good to come up with some goals for mine and kraig’s first year of marriage, but that’s another post for another day. !  without further ado, here’s my
