Personal: Charmed Life, goodbye 22!

No song can better define being 22 for me, than this. I became smitten with it just a little while after having turned 22, and now that it's coming to a close ... Looking back, it's definitely been charmed.

*i obsessed over this song for weeks i forced myself to learn it by ear on the guitar. not an easy task. joy= one of my all time faves.

I remember being 16, and always thinking about what I'd be like when I was 22. What I would have accomplished by then, or where I would have been. With God I've learned time and time again that these plans that I make for myself ... 9 times out of 10 never turn out right. But when I leave it all up to Him and hold nothing back ... things turn out better than I could have ever imagined.
*thank you boyfriend for taking this awesome picture

If I were to share all the blessings this year has brought me, we'd be here for days and you'd have to yank me off of my computer for me to stop. Instead I'm content in sharing that, that girl I was when I turned 22, is not the same girl who turns 23 tomorrow. I'd like to think that I'm a better verison of me compaired to a year ago, as I aim for that daily. That's what growing up is all about right? {Besides all the yukky grown up stuff ... but who wants to hear about that ey?}

Life is definitely charmed, even on our worst days. And although 23 sounds like a big number ... there is still soo much growing up ahead of me. I can not wait.

Sayonara 22 .. you were so much fun!
23, here I come!
