I turn 25 this a week from today.  I am so grateful for the past year (one of the best I've had yet).  I loved having all of the experiences above and feel like the bar is set high for next year.  I'm not really one for bucket lists, but I did make a list of things I'd like to do while 25.  That list and more next week.

What have you crossed off your list for this year?  What's on your bucket list for next year?


  1. Love this post! I was planning to do something similar since I turned 24 today. You accomplished quite a bit in 1 year! P.S. Your dog is toooo cute.

    1. Thanks. You should! I really enjoyed thinking over the last year and being grateful for how I've grown and what I've gotten to experience.

      Dusty gets away with WAY too much when he looks at me with those eyes. Cute, but a little tyrant (as I've documented in my almost weekly "Dusty the Destroyer" posts).

      Hope your birthday is wonderful. Looking forward to hearing about how you celebrate.

  2. Welcome to my age bracket! ;)
