It’s my 25th birthday today, yayyyy!

(This is the cake and card that my boss at the travel store gave me on Tuesday–so sweet!)
I love my birthday, and I know that sometimes once people get older they starting hating their birthdays, but I don’t think I ever will. It’s a chance to look back and reflect on how much has happened over the past year, and think about the future…plus it’s a day where you can make everyone wait on you, so what’s not to love?! 
(Kidding…but not really)
It was so nice to be able to spend time and celebrate my birthday a little early with my family last week (more photos from their visit to come soon!). They gave me some lovely gifts, and checked a few items off my wish list!
Some presents from my parents–so happy to finally have the Naked palette!

 Today, I’m happy that I have my friends Wendi and James here from South Carolina to celebrate with me today! (You can see some pictures from their visit so far over at Wendi’s blog) Tonight, we’re going to dinner in Boulder to celebrate, but I still need to pick a
restaurant! We did end up getting some snow last night, so this morning we’ve all just been visiting, making pancakes, and it’s so nice just to relax.
I’m so blessed to have an amazing family and wonderful friends, and I appreciate all the birthday wishes that I’ve already received today. I feel like I was just turning 24, but then in a way I can’t believe all that has happened this year. I feel blessed to have had a lot of amazing experiences, and I’m looking forward to making a lot more memories in the year to come! Xoxo
