Celebrating 25 Years


Today is my birthday. I'm turning a quarter of a century old. I know....it sounds kinda ancient. But it's really not. 25 is a milestone birthday. It's a transition period for me. Long gone are those carefree childhood days and time to put on my big girl pants and make important life decisions. There is so much living, loving, learning, growing, exploring, and dreaming I have yet to do. This beautiful journey has just begun and I'm looking forward to the next 100+ years of life (my mission is to be the longest living person in the world...we'll see how that goes...I better get my sugar addiction under control). 

About a year ago I started this blog and it's been such an amazing experience for me. I went back to my roots and started doing things that I was passionate about like fashion, music, baking, etc. I've been reunited with my artsy fartsy creative side....and it feels so good! I've also met some truly wonderful people. Thank you all for your support. I'm grateful for all of you! I'll leave you with a little quote...."Today is the oldest you've been and the youngest you'll ever be." So Live. Be Happy. Be You. And. Be Kind.
