26 Things No One Tells You About Turning 26

This has been a big week. On Tuesday I officially turned 26 and have celebrated in almost every way I can think of. From kicking off the festivities in NYC last weekend with my best friend to enjoying a Carvel ice cream cake at home with my family, 26 is off to an amazing start.

You know this is my cake because there's a smudge where I had to sample the frosting.

(Good riddance!)

Resilience Is Golden

One of the smartest things I’ve ever done was slow down. Granted, it wasn’t by choice but my quarter-life crisis sure came in handy and helped me sort out my priorities. It doesn’t sound all that glamorous, and it certainly wasn’t, but I definitely learned how to make it worth my while.

17 Things To Celebrate In April & A Giveaway

One of my all-time favorite books celebrates a character who recognizes special days in her own way.

After a little thinking and a lot of research, I have discovered that there are way more things to celebrate in April aside from the arrival of spring.

April 24th is a great day to celebrate a scene like this.
