27th Birthday!!!

Today is my 27th Birthday and we all know how much I love birthdays!!!

This is an especially exciting birthday for me as I have a lot of big life changes happening. Yesterday was my last day with a company I have been with for over four years, I am going to be starting to take classes again soon, looking for a new home, and much more. I am looking forward to starting off my 27th year by spending the day with Nic, pumpkin pancakes, Champagne, and some much-needed pampering (hair and nail appointment). Cheers to an exciting and challenging new year!
