Well, I have officially reached that age where birthdays are no longer exciting lol! Before we dive in, yes, I know, quarantine is spelled wrong. Honestly, if that doesn’t portray how my quarantine has been going then I don’t know what does. Spelling was actually something I was good at in school which I guess wore off over the years haha. In all honesty, I shot these on my lunch break and the day I got these cookies delivered. I rushed because well to be honest….I wanted a damn cookie…guess I should of proofread haha! So enjoy a good laugh!
Having a birthday during quarantine kind of sucks because I can’t celebrate with my family and friends but more importantly, I can’t go out to eat and I mean that’s the best part about a birthday…am I right?! Because of that, today I am consuming an abundant amount of cookies, pizza and wine. So I am really not that mad about it lol. These pictures will literally be me celebrating today…. after work hours of course!
Every year I like to write a birthday post talking about the past year and all of the cool things that had happened. Its safe to say that my 25th birthday ended at a crappy time but it definitely was an awesome year full of growth. I’ve had my struggles this past year with having to get my endometriosis surgery and what not but I would like to think that I had a pretty good year health wise. I am continuing to learn how to live with my endo as well as my IBS and for me that is a win.
As for my love life, it couldn’t be any better. This past year my boyfriend have grown closer as we traveled together and had our two year anniversary. Sometimes it is hard to let people in but he makes it pretty dang easy. It is nice to do life with someone who gets me. The good, the bad and the ugly. I am excited to see what this year brings being 26.
One of the most exciting things that have happened is my growth with blogging. I would love absolutely nothing more than to do this as my full time job but right now that’s obviously not possible. But one day, I hope it is. I am beyond grateful for the many friendships I have made as well as all of the amazing brands that I have had the pleasure of working with. Within the past couple of months, I have reached over 6k followers and from starting out with less than 1,000 two years ago, that is HUGE for me. To some, their followers are just a number but for me I like to think of them as friends. My goal for the end of the year is to break 10k. So far, I think I am on the right path to do so.
Lastly, this year I have become so much more confident in myself and what I have to offer. I have struggled over the years with anxiety and self doubt and I really think this past year I have overcome a lot of that. For me, that in itself was my favorite part of being 25.

All in all, this past year has had its ups and downs but I wouldn’t of had it any other way. Being in quarantine is just a little bump in the road that makes you become just that more thankful for your friends, family and loved ones. So although this quarantine isn’t ideal….stay home, stay healthy and wash your hands!
