Here’s to turning 26 and living more intentionally, loving more fully, and creating more freely.

Thank you to my sweet husband, friends, and family for making the day so special.  The following are a collection of images taken in Charlotte and Michigan on my camera + phone.

Then, we dressed up, went to our favorite restaurant (Rooster’s), and saw a movie.

To my utmost surprise, my best friend delivered her baby a MONTH early.  I was so excited to get to meet Porter before we left to head back to NC.  I think he came early just to see me :)
