This is the last day of my 22nd year. Tomorrow I embark on another year. When I look back at last year's blog post, I can remember how nervous I was about all of the changes that were about to take place in my life. This year has not been easy. It has tested my will power, my relationships and my respect for myself and in this year I have seen myself grow from careless youth and start (keyword being start) the move in to responsible. Suddenly, the conversations went from what club do you want to rage at to what bottle of wine do you think will compliment Andy Samberg's SNL episode. From worrying about the drama of everyone around me to only caring about the handful of people I can call my best friends and worrying more about work and my career  rather than what music festivals to go to. 

I still am unsure of my future but it's always around the my birthday that I remember that I am just turning 23 and I am still young. I don't need to have it figured out overnight. I trust that I'm on the right path, or at least beginning the journey to head down it.  I do know that I have learned more about myself this past year than any year before and I'm starting to become more comfortable and confident with who I am. That's a start. 

I don't even know what to say at this point. Birthdays make me really emotional.

That Time

I thought I was going to be taking a little break from the blog this week so I could catch up on all of my work but as I sit on my roof at 4 in the afternoon staring at the neon flowers that hang on the building across, I realize I have the perfect post. 

B and I each found these floral looks on our own but I feel like we create our own botanical garden when we wear them together.

Rising sun

Wandering around Little Italy with one of my favorite red heads, Rachel Thalia, while decked out in Free People. We explored the area and enjoyed the warm sun. It's been awhile since I got to hang out with Rachel but since she's graduated from Syracuse she's been back in New York City where she belongs. 

July is going to be an excellent month. There will be lots of projects and traveling and exploring. I'm  looking forward to more sun and the next birthday, especially for that week of self reflection as I did briefly last year.

Happy July!
