Life Lately: Starting #Twenty6

My #25thyear was not as scary as I thought it would be - or as weird. In fact, 25 is (eh..was) a fantastic age - you're not too young or too old. Its as Goldilocks says - "it was just right"!

#Twenty6 is my new hashtag (because I can't help it..) and I am already in love with this year! Who doesn't love working a half week on your birthday?! 

I get asked a lot what its like to have a birthday on Valentine's day + honestly, I always have mixed feelings. It can be hard if everyone you know seems to be dating or married, but thankfully my family + friends have always made such a great day!

This year even a few married couples joined our Valentine's dinner (thanks Z+B, M+R!) After turning 26 in Athens at 9Ds (yes, really) I got to brunch with one my friends before she got engaged! I do love a good brunch and I love engagements even more! That night my roommates took me out with our friends for some delicious Italian :-) This past weekend I was home with my family + got to celebrate that my BFF is about to become a mom! Okay, that was weird to type.

Onto Birthday things!!

I love funny cards + these did not disappoint. We spent the morning picking which older lady we were. Also, see those Kendra Scott earrings?!?! My roommates are the best! I wear them at least 100x a week. JK, more like 5 days out of 7. Love Love. 
*we do recycle :-) 

Brunch at Another Broken Egg in Vinings - Mimosas and Beignets?
All day every day please!
One week until she got engaged!! 

We only left one...

When Brunch is next to LOFT + they have a sale + I have a gift card... this jacket had to come home with me! 
Side note..I love these boots, but they are the most uncomfortable shoes ever. 

Dinner out! 

Oreo ice-cream cake to top it all off!

Thanks J + E for making 26 so great + everyone who came to dinner, called, texted, FB. 
I am so excited for this year! 

I took Thursday + Friday off the week of my birthday to check a new city off my bucket list:



  1. Love that jacket! I may have to borrow it sometime once I live in Atlanta!!!

    1. You definitely can! Just move here already 😆
