Tomorrow marks my quarter of a century, yes- tomorrow is my 25th birthday and I am so excited to see what the second half of my 20s brings me.  I have been so fortunate to have had such amazing things happen in my early 20s, like graduate college, start a blog, work for a Major League Baseball team, travel to Europe and around the US, meet amazing friends that I feel like I have known forever, live with 12 girls in a house on the hill, live with one roomate (the best eva), and live alone (well with the pups, of course), and now living with a boy.  How things have changed in just 4 small years, but it funny how many changes have happened in my life in that short period of time.  I feel like a completely different person from the day I turned 20. While, I still feel like I have no idea what I am doing, I am just riding out the wave and learning as I go.  A good friend of mine who is in her 30s told me she felt like she changed the most in their 20s, somewhat coming into her own.  I feel like I am still working on that but I am getting closer every day.  Being confident, compassionate and open to learning are going to be my goals for twenty-five.  I just have a feeling this is going to be a good year.  

Thanks for letting me ramble today- I am just feeling nostalgic as I cross over into my next quarter of a century.  

Here are a few things I put on my wish list.  I am really not one that loves to be showered with gifts on my birthday, but I would rather spend time with the people I love.  I do always treat myself to one investment piece each year. Here are my top picks: 

j brand leather jacket / ariel gordon wing and knot rings / sam edelman booties / otte dress / pashli / joie perfume / j crew highline t-shirt / cartier love bracelet / rebecca minkoff sunglass case / j crew earrings

xox- a dash of details
