on turning 25.

yesterday, on the 7th of june, i turned 25 years old. i've been asked a few times if i "feel" any older, and my response to that question is yes! i do feel older! just a tiny bit more capable, more confident, and more assured in what i want for myself and in how i want to live my life. it's an interesting thing, turning 25, and yesterday was the perfect celebration with my sweet husband. there was dinner, there was dessert, and then there was dancing....and i fell asleep one happy girl. i'm definitely looking forward to what this next year will bring and all i have to say is--i'm ready!

in honor of my 25th birthday, and because i love making lists, i thought i'd share just a few things i've learned in my old age....

be grateful and content at every stage of life.
don't be so hard on others, and don't be so hard on yourself.
creativity is like faith--it requires constant practice and is a lifelong pursuit.
exercising and eating vegetables makes any day a good day.
life is more beautiful when life is simple.

hope everyone's day yesterday was as wonderful as mine. <3
