As I celebrate my 28th Birthday today, I wanted to share 28 Things I’ve Learned while living on this earth. I always feel reflective around this time of year. If you’d like an extended response about any of the items on this list let me know and I’ll post it for you! I do feel like I’m knocking on 30s door lol… A new decade is coming… wow! I went to see Red Tails with my hubby (which was an amazing film) and will be spending the weekend scrapbooking – my favorite thing in the world lol.
