Today I’m turning 28! I’m an 80’s baby, 1985 to be exact. I graduated high school 10 years ago… silent pause. I was born in the wonderful era of big hair, neons and leotards… all trends that the fabulous Beyonce is keeping in style these days. I thought I’d just take a moment to walk down memory lane with you. Some nostalgic facts about the year I was born… and let’s just say some of the best movies came out in 1985. Oh, and my state killed it in sports!
