Twenty-Six #BirthdayGirl

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Saturday officially was my date of birth, I had a great day, super low-key, lunch in the city (a.k.a Philadelphia), birthday cake & Netflix on the couch. This year I wasn't "all about" my birthday as I usually am. Maybe because I am 26 & past the partying stage? I am not really sure, but this year was way different than last year's extravaganza in Vegas! But I still loved every minute of it. I wrote these 26 things the morning of my birthday & it really made me reflect on these past years & my future as a wife, daughter, sister, aunt & friend. These are simple things, but nice to be reminded of from time to time. I am no expert on life, but these reminders keep me grounded & work for me :)

2. Work hard.
3. Laugh constantly.
