Today is my birthday!! I’m finally 23 and I cannot believe time is going by so quickly! The fact that it’s already time for another birthday is blowing my mind. It’s also making me reflect on this past year of being 22 and how much I’ve grown.
This entire year has created major growth in my life both personally and professionally. I have done a lot more soul searching and have become completely confident in the person that I am. I know that is something that many twenty-somethings struggle with. I have found my confidence, spirituality, career goals, and life goals. I am no longer that young girl trying to find my way, and that feels liberating. I wanted to share somewhat of a “highlight reel” of the past year to celebrate new and even better things to come with being 23!
- Landed my first ever publication in a magazine! I had my work published in the print and digital edition of Nail Pro Magazine and Nails Magazine several times over this past year. This has always been one of my DREAMS when it came to my career and I still can’t believe it happened!
- Hit my 1 year anniversary of this blog and hit 3,000 amazing followers!! This milestone was one that I never saw coming. I started this blog thinking I would connect with a few like minded individuals, but never believed it would turn into a full time passion. Surpassing 3,000 followers was completely unexpected and I am still overjoyed everyday by having you guys here. This blog has become such a huge source of love, inspiration, and positive that I couldn’t imagine not having you guys apart of my life! Thank you so much!!
- Founded AllOut Adventure Supply with my boyfriend Derek! For those who don’t know, my boyfriend Derek makes the best handmade leather and waxed canvas accessories! We created a lifestyle brand called AllOut Adventure Supply to share his inspirational story, amazing handcrafted products, and love for adventure. It has grown so much in this past year and I’m so happy to be helping him in this huge journey!
Thank you all so much for reading. I love looking back to see how far I’ve come, no matter how small the milestones may be. You guys make this space so fun and I love getting to interact and share my passions with you all. I hope your day is amazing; love and light! :)
