Goodbye 22

Happy Birthday to me!!
This birthday is the most nonchalant one I have celebrated…maybe because I’m too busy focusing on my wedding in 9 DAYS!!

Today (at 3:15pm to be exact) I turn 23 and say goodbye to my very favorite number, my golden birthday. Besides turning 22 on 2/22 last year, the next one I’ll have to look forward to is my birthday on 2/22/22 (but I’m turning 28 then so…nothing exciting). This is also the first birthday I haven’t been with my mom! Weird! Okay wow I feel like this has all sounded so depressing so far!

My golden birthday year really was fabbbulous though! I graduated college, I moved (aka I moved boxes into a new apartment that have now exploded everywhere), I have almost had my last day as a princess at my dream job, and I GOT ENGAGED, hello!! I have so much to be thankful for as I turn 23 and so much I get to look forward to, even within the next 10 days! So here are a few of my favorite photos & memories from my lovely 22-year-old self! Shout out to my Instagram followers because you’re about to see a lot of repeats (;

Around Halloween I tried to mess around with makeup that I had leftover from a random theatrical makeup class I took and I was most proud of this one (even though it scared my mom)!
