Beginning Adulthood

Friday, February 16, 2018

Quoting my all time favorite princess, "That's the funny thing about birthdays, they're kind of an annual thing!" -Rapunzel. And just like Rapunzel, I turned 18!
I've been dying to turn 18 for forever now! Being 17 was really frustrating because it was people kind of treating me like an adult but not really and life just got annoying with all of that. But as of February 8th, 2018 I am officially an adult! That day I actually saw a shirt that said Adult(ish) and I honestly really relate to it. I'll always be a kid at heart soooo.....

Being completely honest with all of you, I was not excited for my birthday this year, and for those who know me, you know I typically LIVE for my birthday. This year I've been dealing with some very big and hard life changing situations that had really gotten me in a pit for a bit. And of course these things happened about a week before my birthday. I wasn't really in the mood to celebrate, but I already had plans to go to breakfast at Disneyland with my boyfriend and later in the week celebrate with a part with friends. 
Honestly though I'm glad I had these plans because they were well needed. Being with the people I love made me feel so genuinely loved and cared for and I was able to realize, no matter what horrible things go on in life, there are so many things to be thankful for. I'm so lucky to have such amazing friends and sisters that make me feel special in those moments that I really need the extra support. 

I want to thank everyone for the sweet birthday wishes! Thank you all for the constant love and support! Comment below your favorite birthday that you've had and why!
Thanks for reading friends!
