via MHN YOU GUYS. I turn 27 tomorrow! That feels weird. To quote my queen Taylor Swift, “part of me still feels 18 and part of me feels 283.” Of course, I am all sorts of introspective and day-dreamy about a new year of life. I’d love to sit down with you and have coffee and chat all about it. And if we were to do that, I’d tell you… …I am more excited for this year of my life than any other year so far. I feel like there are incredible things on the horizon. I feel strong and ready and full of motivation. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt like this, and it makes me so happy. …I’d tell you all I ever want for my birthday is new clothes. I want to shop and eat delicious food and lay in the sun. A few trips this week took care of the shopping part, and I got the cutest stuff. I also got an outfit that is way out of my comfort zone, but also feels 100000% me (does that make any sense?) and I’m kind of obsessed with it. pants (so comfy!), top …That 26 brought the best days and the worst days of my life. That it was broken and it was beautiful. That I feel like I’m more myself than I’ve ever been, but that every single bit of that was hard fought for this year. …That I’m treating 27 as a fresh start for nearly everything in my life. How beautiful of a gift that as I’m craving that, I get to start a new year. I’m counting myself lucky and taking advantage of my own personal new year. I hope you have the best weekend ever! Eat some cake or sushi for me – calories don’t count on your birthday, and I feel like that can definitely just extend to you. And to get just a little bit sappy…thanks for sticking through this year with me. Love you, mean it. xo
