It’s hard to believe I turn 24 tomorrow.
It doesn’t seem like long ago that I was angry at my brother for making a Blink-182 “Nobody likes you when you’re 23” reference before I could on my 23rd birthday.
I’ve done a lot in the past year. In celebration of my 24th birthday, let’s look back at my 23 favorite moments from age 23, in chronological order.

um. you had an AWESOME year!!! Also HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
I’m also obsessed with your cat bed. I want to make one—-but i think my kitty Brooks would not be a fan haha!
Thank you!! Val wasn’t a fan at first, but now she LOVES it. It’s her little refuge from Stanley. At least for now. 🙂
This is such a wonderful list and way to look back on the year!
getting lost in venice sounds kind of amazing. happy bday!
Thanks! It was definitely amazing.

I hit “Doing this to Val” and I started choking on my smoothie.

Choking from laughing*** I should clarify. Not out of anger or frustration. From laughing. Like a klutz.
Sean made me a Val calendar for Christmas, and that photo is December 2015. I never thought I’d want it to be December so badly.
