Turning 25

Wow.

Turning 25. Here we are. This is it. Is this considered a milestone birthday? If not, it really should be. 25 means so much,somehow. 25 is different. 25, and now I’m closer to 30 than I am to 20. 25, and I have a career and my own place and adulthood is really starting. 25, and a person I thought I was going to lose in my life ended up asking me to marry him (!!!). 24 brought so much: adventure, happiness, heartache…the whole nine yards really. Despite all the wonderful moments of being 24, I’m beyond ready for this next year. 24 was hard. But I don’t want to remember it for its hardships, and I don’t want to carry that dead weight with me into 25. I want this year to be the year I blossom into the person I feel I am on the inside. I want to show the world who I am, who I really¬†am, besides just a wine loving shop-a-holic who really likes purses and shoes. I promise there is so much more to me than that, so much more that, at 25, I’m still discovering.

My favorite moments from this past year are those shared with family and my fiance. Driving through the night from Ohio to Townsend, TN just in time to see the sunrise. Spending a week exploring mountains and hiking and camping. Long weekends spent camping in more local places, just to be outdoors. The beers and the fires and the laughter. The random group texts for happy hours and gathering to just have a simple good time. Those are the types of moments that stand out to me the most. These moments have a hold over my heart, and are the moments I look back on when I need to lift my spirits and feel thankfulness and gratitude.

I also started a blog! I’ve always wanted to do it, and 24 was the year I finally made it happen. Maybe I haven’t been the best in keeping up with it, but just allowing myself the freedom to find a new hobby (and a creative one at that) has been so refreshing. I’ve always done the same old thing, so this was a step in a new direction for me. I’m super excited to see where I can take this in the next year.

There was so much about 24 that was great. I want to do so much more now with 25. I really want to make this the BEST year of my life. I can’t wait to see what I can accomplish!

Coffee Talk – Catching Up

Coffee Talk – Catching Up

Good Morning everyone!

 

I’ve been MIA for far to long! I promise I’m trying harder to remember to blog. I always write it down in my planner to include it in my day but studying for a second portion of the CPA exam is already taking up most of my free time. I have quite a bit to catch you all up on, as well as a few posts in the works for throughout this week and next. I’m going to try to plan a few “themed day” posts that I can follow each week, which hopefully will help make content creation a little more fluid. I have a bag review coming up for you guys, a clothing box subscription to share, a huge life update, and a recap of a super fun weekend I had in Boston attending the Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) gaming tradeshow. A little bit of fashion, a little bit of lifestyle, and a little bit of nerd. I’m excited to get more of a schedule down and really start putting out some more content. I really do love writing these posts, taking photos¬†and editing the media for them, and in general flexing the few creative muscles I do have to come up with these. I’m excited to get back into it!
