Life Update: This is 30

I had so many emotions going into this birthday season. My birthday has always been my favorite holiday outside of Christmas and Easter, naturally I celebrate it like it’s never going to end. A friend put it best the morning of my birthday, “Look at how much you have accomplished, I wouldn’t want to be 20 again for anything”.  I gotta admit, that hit home. I have accomplished, learned, and grown so much in these last five years let alone 10. So, I am going to share three pieces of advice that I have learned along the way that I would tell anyone at this stage in my life as well as share a bit of where I am now, my new dream, as well as my new grown up job.

Do NOT Stay in your Lane

Warning: Rant ahead filled with a touch of preaching, inspiring and an overall disapproval of a common phrase.

I do have a fun one to share with you today though, especially with Memorial Day coming up! I realized this Winter that I had absolutely no patriotic bags and from some inspiration from the islands on my most recent trip I started thinking about a fun way to make one myself!

Avengers Movie Night

I have been counting down the days until Avengers: Endgame comes out and I couldn’t be more excited that it’s landing next weekend! To celebrate the big release and hopefully answers to all of my questions I put together a viewing party worthy of an Avenger. It’s perfect to binge watch all of the movies and brush up on my hero’s before they save the day. My Dad and I always see the movies together, so although I am not going opening weekend as we need to coordinate our schedules I will be seeing it soon.
