Double Dozen Plus One

So, tomorrow's the fateful day when I turn 25. And, now that I'm officially 2.5 decades old and where I thought I would be (in big, broad stroke ways) I've realized there really is wisdom that comes with age. And, what kind of blogger, birthday girl would I be without sharing all the genius I've managed to acquire over the years?


I wish that was what I was doing right now. But, I'm not. Have you had any cake yet? Because it is my birthday tomorrow and they are really only good with cake. And champagne but I can't be too demanding now can I? On for my mad knowledge skills:
  • There's no such thing as too many ways to celebrate. Literally, I love to celebrate for a month. And I have every intention to do so for years to come.
  • Some things are worth the brand name and price: shoes, sunglasses, and Starbucks.
  • Honesty. Honesty. Honesty. It might make things awkward or weird, but it'll ensure you're respected and respectable. Be honest.
  • A good bra will always make the girls look amazing. 
  • Bird feeders are the bomb-diggity. And will make you feel really popular with all your new feathered friends.
  • Put yourself out there. 99% of the time goodness meets you.
  • Shots are dangerous so don't start. Just don't start
  • When life gets hard, faith is vital. 
  • Boldness blesses you. Knowing what you want is wonderful -bravely chase your craziest of dreams. 
  • Find a favorite brand of undies and buy lots of them because it's not an everyday occurrence. 
  • You can do it yourself (as in #DIY, Pinterest style). I know, it feels tricky and scary, but you can and it'll make you damn proud. 
  • Love wins every time. 
Cheers beauties!
I'm off for a weekend of festivities (again) but Doubt & Devotion will still be live Sunday!

  7. Sometimes I celebrate just because it's Tuesday. Seriously. I love celebrating anything and everything. And you ABSOLUTELY can demand cake and champagne for your birthday! Duh! I totally agree about the putting yourself out there thing--it's scary as crap, but totally worth it in the end!
