23 Things I’ve Learned at 23

Quote of the day: “Blessed to see another year.” On November 9, I turned 23! Hooray another year older… and 2 years away from a quarterly life crisis. This year has gone by so freaking fast. It honestly seems like yesterday that I was turning 22. I remember it so clearly and this year just doesn’t even seem like it happened. Today, I wanted to share some things I’ve learned from my 23 years of life. Living through a pandemic is so crazy and unlike something you’ve ever experienced.

Christmas Festivities

The other evening, my family decided to go look at Christmas lights at Filoli House and Garden. Basically, this place is a giant estate that is open to the public and is so nicely decorated and well-kept. There were Christmas lights everywhere…it was magical. They were also serving wine and See’s candy! Yum! Did I mention the hot chocolate was really bomb? Because it was. I thought I would share a few photos of our Christmas light extravaganza to get you all in the festive mood because Christmas is just a few days away! Doesn’t this look so magical? It was so fun seeing all…

Happy late Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I am so happy and grateful that I got to spend it at home with my family and I hope everyone got to spend Thanksgiving with their loved ones! Today I wanted to share a little about my Thanksgiving break! Wednesday (Day Before Thanksgiving):  This is one of the most hectic days of the holiday season. Thanksgiving is always at my house and my parents love to go all out (even if it’s just for eight people), so my mom and dad are in the kitchen from morning to night preparing for Thanksgiving day.
