Life at 24

...Today is my last day being 24...
My 24th year has been the hardest and greatest yet. I wouldn't trade it! I made some moves that people may have questioned... hell, I questioned them. But I knew that to be able to get to where I finally am, I had to do that. No regrets. I made some new friends, learned to be honest with myself, was blessed with two gorgeous nieces, met a great guy who makes me smile, found new sources for creative inspiration, learned to forgive even in the most difficult situations, became a better cook, found a seat closer to God, saw my friends more often and above all else... I LOVED.
A random wrap-up of my life at 24
The Good, The "Interesting" & The Lovely
With Boy on my 24th Birthday. I remember feeling like he didn't want to be there. I always felt like I was working with him. Lessons learned, my friends.

The Day Doll Face was born. SO full of love :)

With some of my best girlfriends at C's engagement party! This was a fun night, but I was going through a lot personally at the time.

Halloween as a Brownie Scout... I don't know what I'm doing in this picture, but I kinda love it! haha

Drinks and a life catch up with one of my best guy friends! See that margarita? BEST EVER. It seemed like there was a ton of catching up to do at that time... but oh man, if I only knew that the changing was just beginning!

A & I at our friend's wedding!

Goofing around at a Mardi Gras parade with my Uncle!

Lovin' on C at one of our many girls nights :)
