Ode to 23

so i wanted to dedicate a post to my year as a 23-year-old. kenny has already been calling me old the last two weeks and will probably continue to do so for another 2 weeks...until he forgets. yea, i'm six months older and this is the time of year he reminds me about it! it is now november 17th, midnight exactly. my 24th birthday! some highlights of my 23rd year are:

finishing my bachelors degree and finally graduating! (it took 5 years, but they say that's normal these days)

one of my best friends, kelsey, having her first baby :) how cute is this family?

one of my best friends, amy, moving home after graduation :( we were roomies for a little more than 3 years and i loved every minute of it! 

moving in with shalie. shalie has definitely earned the awesome roommate award. why? she is currently working on a birthday cake for me that takes not just a few hours...but 2 DAYS to complete. whoa. see? awesome.

and celebrating 2 years years kenny. i surprised him with this picture :)

 and this is after hiking sharp top over the summer.

it really has been a great year! so im closing with one last picture taken of me as 23. 

i'm ready for a new chapter of my life, my 24th chapter. and i thank God for the 23 years that he has blessed me with so far.



  1. Happy Happy Happy Birthday to you! May this be your best year yet!

  2. Happy Birthday, Erin! Hope you have a fantastic day :)
