• 26 Things About Me For My 26th Birthday

    Here I am writing my first post as a 26 year old! I celebrated my birthday (which was Saturday) by winery hopping in Virginia with some friends. We had so much fun enjoying the amazing weather we have been experiencing and it was the perfect day to explore. We went to four wineries and I will be sharing about our weekend in a later post. For now, here is a quick video to document our fun time. One of my favorite things about blogging is getting to know other bloggers by reading facts they share. It’s getting harder to think of things I haven’t shared with you all before, but…

    My 26th Birthday Wish List

    I’m going to start celebrating just for the heck of it rather than celebrating my birthday. I was a little freaked out about 25, but for some reason 26 seems crazy. Me? 26? Like a real adult? I just don’t understand. I am about to officially be passed my “mid-twenties” and I can’t exactly handle that. But what I can handle…a birthday wish list. Instead of focussing on the negative, I am going to focus on the positives and all of the pretty things I think every twenty-something deserves. As I was thinking about some beauties I wanted to add to my collection this year, I started to realize travel…

    A Letter To My Sister On Her 18th Birthday (and Wedding Wednesday)

    Today might be Wedding Wednesday, which you may know is super important around here, but an even more important event today is that my little sister is turning 18! Since it’s such a special day, I have a post all about her today, so I will be back to Wedding Wednesday next week- but don’t worry, you can still link-up below. I can’t wait to see your posts!   Dear Emily, I don’t know how to deal with the fact that you are now 18 years old. You are now legally an adult. I knew this day was coming, especially since we have been the same height for at least…

    25 Things On My 25th Birthday

    The day has arrived, I can’t believe I am actually 25. I’ve been dreading this since I turned 23, because 22 is the best age ever. Thankfully I am still feelin’ 22…HA I wish! To celebrate this momentous birthday, I planned on doing a 25 facts about me thing, but I have done 2 of those in the last year, so I am switching it up. I have 15 things you might or might not know about me, and then 10 of my favorite blog posts. From 2.5 years of blogging, I have shared some huge things on this here blog, and I’ve also learned exactly what I like to…

  • Weekending {Birthday, Snow and Shark Attacks!}

    I love coming back to work after a long and wonderful weekend….said no one ever. With that being said, I am not hating this particular Monday as much as I have others. Way too much happened this weekend to go into detail this early into the week, but maybe soon I will sit down and pour my heart out onto this screen. The weekend started off not so wonderful, but it ended in a fantastic way…#NationalMargaritaDay. I have been praying for snow since the beginning of the winter, all we seem to get is the start or finish of another states massive blizzard. Well, I finally got what I was…
