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.

  4. Lauren and I met when I was a sophomore naively taking Arabic. While the language was a struggle, her friendship means the world to me!


5. Melissa became my mentor in the spring of my freshman year. She took the lonely, awkward me and love me anyways.


6.  Speaking of mentors, Ryan has been there through the thick and thin. I don’t think any guy as seen me cry this much, except maybe my brother. 12973258_1033559756717942_6400513216798076535_o.jpg

  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)
