You probably already know this if you follow me on Instagram and Stories, but I recently spent my 26th birthday up on the Mendocino Coast (like literally RIGHT ON the coast) at the magical Heritage House Resort & Spa. It is often referred to as a hidden gem, which could not be more true. Rarely am I left speechless, but when I walked through the front door of our room and saw the full ocean view I was just that –
Time is such a strange thing. As I sit here typing this post, I could swear to you that I just turned 25 yesterday. Instead, an entire year has gone by. So much has happened in the last year. I have seen incredible growth in so many areas of my life. Growth that has been 26 years in the making, and I find myself taken aback my the amount of gratitude for where I sit today. All of the incredible highs and unbearable lows that life may throw your way start to make more and more sense as you get older. They make you appreciate things more. They make you recognize what is worth your precious thoughts and what is not. They make you laugh a little louder, love a little deeper and see the world for all of its possibilities. As another birthday passes, I realize more and more that materials don’t mean anything. Life is all about the connections you have with those close to you and the moments you get to share with them.
