Hello 21

Today. I officially reach adulthood. Well sort of. (Why 21 is significant I don't really know but it feels grown up!)
When I was little I assumed I would understand everything my 21. Right now though I am feeling like I  am just working things out and I wonder if that feeling will ever change!


I am so excited for what this year holds.
For another year in my favourite city, for another year studying, for living with my closest friends, for learning how to cope in my first house.
I am excited to see where I go creatively, what new projects may come my way, what blog posts are going to be written and where I will end up this time next year.

I am excited to do life with the boy. To grow up with him. To see him mature and change and graduate by this time next year. To fall more in love.

I am excited for what this year holds with my faith, for leading cell group at church and a bible study group in college. To gr
ow closer to God.

21. Wonderful, exciting, big things are coming up. I can't wait.

I hope you had a super happy birthday yesterday, Abi! You know, Doug reads comments that my blog friends leave for me so it's like he kind of knows all of you. I said to him last night, "You know my blog friend, Abi? She's 21 today." He looked really surprised and said, "She's just a pup?" I had to laugh because I've always said that you are wise beyond your years. The comments you leave for me are always so perceptive and articulate. I'm really looking forward to seeing what this year has in store for you too. I have a feeling it's going to be spectacular!

PS: That is the most awesome photo of you! ♥
