It’s my birthday and I’ll blog if I want to.
Well, another year’s gone by and I’m still the same height I was when I was blowing out 13 candles on my birthday cake. A lot has changed since the big 1-8 and it’s been a rather exciting year marked by finding new passions, growing skills, and getting to keep on livin’ the good life.
Here’s a year in my camera roll leading up to Nasty 19, complete with all the people that have made it such a good one. Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy 19 (jk 24) of my favorite memories.
Looks like I’m growing up slowly but surely. Maybe adulthood isn’t as hard as it seems.

PS. Pray for my 5 classes, accounting exam, and 4.5 hours of sleep
PPS. Thank you Marnie and Mitch for making many dreams come true. The best.
Here’s to lava fields, bright blue water, and infinite waterfalls.
Last week I crossed something major off my Instagram/life bucket list. The one, the only, a global treasure, Iceland. From the moment we landed in Keflavik (and I saw an adorable coffee shop in the airport followed by countless murals on the drive to the city) I knew I’d cherish every single second I would spend in front of these mountain ranges and behind my iPhone camera lense. And it all lived up to expectations.
Grab your parka and your poncho. Some Haribos for the ride. Call me Glacier Girl because I’m about to take you on a photo tour of the most beautiful 5 days of my life.

But all you really need to experience Iceland is your favorite travel companions. And luckily I had mine.
