Hi friends! I just turned 23 and thought it’d be fun to do a post about some things that I’ve learned over the past couple years, hope you enjoy!

  1. Don’t take things too seriously.
  2. Life is way to short to wake up and be unhappy. Fun fact, I made a graphic we framed above our bed that says “wake up and be awesome”, and it brightens my day every morning!
  3. My love for plants has grown so much! I love the life they bring into our home and love seeing them thrive. I also have become obsessed with tulips, one of my dream trips is to visit a tulip field in Amsterdam.
  4. My dog Cooper is literally my child. (ilysm coop)
  5. Home decor is my JAM. I have so much fun decorating our home, its a hobby.
  6. Speaking of hobbies, I’m starting to get into calligraphy and am super pumped!
  7. Taco Bell will always have a special place in my heart. Throwback to when they sold the Stuffed Nacho, why do all good things come to an end? Also Blake wanted me to mention that the Volcano Burrito needs a comeback as well lol.
  8. I love trying out new recipes.
  9. Be Kind. I try to be kind to every single person my path crosses. This is important because we’re all going through something, you might not know what that person is dealing with but just being kind could possibly make their life a little brighter.
  10. Family is everything. My family lives all across the country now, and I make sure to talk with each of them every day.
  11. If you don’t love your job, you shouldn’t be working there. The last job I had, I left everyday asking myself “why am I putting myself through this?” I was absolutely miserable. Now I get to do what I love everyday, and feel very blessed.
  12. There’s somebody out there for everyone, and I’m happy to say that I’ve found my person.
  13. The Office might actually be my favorite show ever.
  14. Stress is not worth the stress.
  15. Blake’s definitely the cook in our house.
  16. I can’t stand a dirty kitchen, but absolutely hate doing dishes lol.
  17. A margarita on the rocks is my go-to drink.
  18. It’s really hard, but also really important to figure out the perfect family / friends / work / and personal time – life balance.
  19. Saving money and being frugal can be a good thing, but sometimes you need to just treat yourself.
  20. I LOVE going to the movies. Blake and I only go to a Dolby Cinema now and its so worth it.
  21. When I tell people I’m a Graphic Designer, it makes me so happy.
  22. Living with your best friend (who’s also your boyfriend lol) is the greatest feeling in the world.
  23. My younger self would definitely be proud of where I’m at in life and who I’ve become.
