I feel like this year is going to be the best one yet- let’s be honest I think I say that every year! I felt so special last weekend on my birthday, thanks to all of you.
I planned out the entire weekend with family and friends.
We went to such a beautiful spot for dinner 1889 Pizza Napoletana with family. You guys this restaurant is so trendy and delicious (of course I forgot to take pictures of the 7 pizza’s we ordered! I promise if you go here you will not be disappointed.
I am so blessed to be surrounded by great friends and family. I wish for nothing but good health and to be surrounded by even more love this year. Thank you all for making me feel so loved and thank you to those who helped me celebrate the entire weekend.
My hopes for my 26th year on this earth:
Creating more friendships and meeting new people.
Focusing more on myself and things that make me happy.
Not letting fear get in the way of things that I have been wanting to do.
Less screen time.
Attending more events to better myself as a creative and as a person.
How do you prefer to celebrate your birthday? I heard after you turn 25, birthdays only go downhill from there? Well not for this girl. I am now 26 and thriving- feeling like the best is yet to come. I always find a reason to celebrate an occasion especially the day of my birth. You don’t get years back so why be down on your age? I understand that birthdays can be a touchy subject, depending who you’re talking to. Everyone has their own rhyme and reason.
I will be spending my birthday surrounded by friends and family this year- which is my favorite way to spend it. We typically go out to eat, have cake and celebrate!
I would love to hear from you, are you the type that celebrates or do you skip it? I’d love to know your favorite way to celebrate your birthday!
Where has the last 2 years gone? Happy Birthday Luther Nash. Becoming a dog mom I have learned so much and gained such a great responsibility.
Andrew and I are in disbelief that this dude once was the size of our forearm. We have watched several home videos of the moments we have documented and are pinching ourselves on how fast time has gone by.
Of course we spoiled him with a peanut butter cake from Three Dog’s Bakery.Yes I know the 2 is backwards but running from the tripod and picking up the prop I was not prepared! LOL
I know I have said it probably way to much, but we got so lucky with Luther. He is seriously practically perfect- well no one/ dog is perfect but I have no complaints. Okay well maybe his breath sometimes and his barking but goodness- he’s so CUTE. Drew claims I love Luther more than him… and I just say “It is a different type of love.” Am I right? haha
Can I admit something- for the entire year up until a couple days when he turned one I thought his birthday was February 21… then I started looking through emails with his breeder and realized it was the 22! THE ENTIRE TIME WE HAD HIM I THOUGHT IT WAS THE 21st…for the first year NOPE the 22nd LOL! Dog mom of the year 😉
Happy Birthday Luther Nash- Thanks for making me a dog mom and responsible human being.
You guessed right, today is my birthday! The big 2-5, I feel like I literally just got use to saying I was 24. I have heard more times than not that this year is going to be the best one yet, or either I am going to have a mid life crisis. Whatever god throws at me I think I will be okay. Hey! I get to rent a car hassle free also I have heard, ha! Be sure to keep scrolling to find out more about the birthday girl. Below I am sharing 25 lessons I have learned in the last year. (Dress and Shoes Linked Below)
Twenty- Five is a year to challenge myself to really look at life with purpose. I find myself getting caught up in planning my future I forget to be in the moment. I get anxiety just thinking about it. We all are guilty of this. Yes we need to plan for the future in a way but my goodness I find myself focusing on that more that anything.
I AM OBSSESSED WITH THESE SHOES.
25 things I learned upon turning 25!
Take care of yourself first, your mind, body and soul.
Surround yourself with people who love you, respect you and value you.
Some people just really suck.
Good things happen when you work your butt off!
When a new opportunity comes you way, take it. You never know until you try.
Saving money is hard! One of my goals is to improve my budgeting habits.
Never be afraid to ask, the worst thing they will say is no.
Find time to just have fun!
Don’t waste your time on something you don’t like. Life is way to short.
Fine peace within yourself.
Grocery shopping is my happy place, and so is shopping for anything else! Hence #7… budgeting…
Be different, god chose all of us to have a talent and purpose. Find that and run with it.
You can always go back home.
Kombucha is life.
Family really is everything. I am so thankful for my crazy loving family.
I love being a dog mama.
Don’t judge a book by its cover. You always hear that but with the way social media is now a days you see so much and think so much.
You can’t control everything.
Surround myself with like minded people.
Brunch is the best part of the day (on the weekend)
I love going to bed early. Sleep is so good for the soul.
Taking time for myself.
Be proud of who I am, who I have become and am still becoming. 20s are not easy. Everything happens for a reason.
