wow, how did this happen?
it feels like just yesterday that at 25 years old i picked up and moved from washington dc to los angeles.. or graduated from university of iowa.. or woke up every morning to strawberry waffles and a bath in my hometown in iowa.
i love getting older. i truly do. the ups and downs feel a lot less severe; i now have the faith in myself that i can make it through anything (not without a few bumps and bruises, of course) and through that i am able to see my world through a lens of joy.
a few of my favorite moments from the year 28:
a sleepyhead morning engagement in april (“can you see me right now? your contacts aren’t in.”); adopting our ever-so-lovable-and-farty english bulldog, rosy, last october; moving into our new place with my mama and a few bottles of wine; a road trip up the coast to lock-in our wedding barn; the arrival of three bundles of joy – silas, macy dean and hudson; going to costa rica with my brother and beau then spending the summer together in venice; finding our magical home in venice; learning how to live together (sometimes my favorite, sometimes not so much); my new grown-up wheels; one of my best buds moving up the coast just a few minutes away; sunset rooftop yoga.
