yesterday ( friday the 13 ! ) i turned 25.
i think 25 is old.
& i'm having a hard time deal.
need new goals.
a year ago i made goals.
to love.
to be brave.
to learn.

we celebrated our first anniversary
& everyday i thank God for j.

starting next week i accepted a new job,
as a counselor in one of the toughest high schools in the state.
i couln't be more nervous,
but i'm so proud i stayed strong.

on july 31st i accepted my master's degree.
a task i wasn't sure i'd ever complete.

new goals are needed.
i still want to love,
be brave,
and learn.

by the time i'm 30 - five years away:
1. take a class, each year.. just for fun.
2. have a baby.
3. stay in one office for more than two years.
4. travel to europe with j.
5. expand helen's hassack.
6. learn how to sew.
7. volunteer every year.
8. have peace in my entire family.
9. visit northern california.
10. visit orlando specifically to see the new harry potter park!

so have i changed much since i was seven years old in that old girl scouts picture?
i still have the same best friend <3
(yeap that's kate in both pictures. haha)
i still love big bows
& ruffles
& black leggings.
i still make sarcastic faces.
thankfully, my parents sprung for braces.


  1. Happy belated birthday! I will be 25 next month and I am thinking its about time I made a list of 10 things I want to do before I am 30 too! 2 and 4 will def be on my list =0)

  2. I want to go to Harry Potter world SOOO bad! I was supposed to be in Orlando this week if I stayed with my old job! :(
