I wanted to blog about some of the most memorable, fun, exciting, silly moments in 2014 so that I would never forget these prime years of my life. I used to always live in the next season, hoping and wishing for the perfect guy and dreaming of having a bunch of kids (I know, I'm crazy town).
I've realized I can't keep doing that. I need to live in today and remember every second of it.
Marriage and babies will be such a rewarding season of life, but I won't be able to walk around in my underwear whenever I want and have cereal and ice cream for dinner when I'm married. This single season (and I'm referring to single as unmarried -- with or without a boyfriend) is an opportunity to take adventures, to grow, to cry, to learn tough lessons, to laugh with your girlfriends until 2 in the morning, to binge watch netflix or hulu for 5 hrs straight, to go on random hikes and take spontaneous road trips ... to do whatever you want! I want to document this season so I can look back when I'm happily married with 4 kids and remember the amazing memories I made when I was 23.
SO, I went through the last 12 months in my iPhoto and compiled my top memories below to share :)
I hope your 2014 was full of some amazing memories and I pray the 2015 has plenty more to come!
