21 {college} memories

Today I turned 21!! This day is super exciting for me, but not for why you think ( Drinking).I’m so elated to turn 21 because it’s the first birthday since I was 11 ( 10 years) where my wish isn’t “to be happy.” I finally there. I’m in a place where I AM HAPPY.

SO cheers to happiness and 21 college memories.

  1. meaningful dragonfly tattoos are the BEST! (mine is two dragonflies that spell out “Beauty for ashes”- a reminder to let go of things that have gone wrong so that my hands are free to receive new, beautiful things instead of holding on to those broken, destroyed dreams/things… (adapted from Isaiah 61:3)
