The 24th Year

A few weeks ago I celebrated my first birthday in Austin, it is officially my 24th year. I have never been the type of person who thinks much of age. I have actually absolutely loved growing up, with each passing year more wisdom is bequeathed upon me and it seems life gets more and more delightful. I think the wisdom I gain in each passing year allows me to live my life more fully and continues to humble me.

With all that being said, I am now reading “you know you are almost 30 when…” blog posts and the worst part is, I can relate to them!

For my birthday I ate some delicious food from the best Sushi restaurant I have ever experienced in my life (paired with some delicious champagne, of course) at Uchiko

Saw some new Austin sights…

And spent time with some old and new friends..

I am not usually one that is much for birthday,s but the year 23 was a big one for me. In the past year I have (officially) graduated college, moved halfway across the country (on my own), started a new job (two days after I took my last final ever), my parents got separated and soon-to-be divorced, one of my brothers got married, I was a maid-of-honor for the first time, I sold almost everything I owned and had someone adopt my rabbit (who was the love of my life), and my entire life was basically flipped upside-down.

It was a whirlwind year and I finally feel like I can take a deep breath, relax, and fully enjoy the new life i am in the progress of building for myself. So, turning 24 had much more sentimental value to it than any birthday of my past because I feel as though I am turning a new leaf and writing the next chapter of my life- a chapter that is 100% mine and is going to be whatever I make it.

Welcome to my life as an Austinite!
