IMG_0455

For my 25th birthday, instead of a simple, traditional present, my mama decided to take me to the beach! She always has a way of taking something that could be just another ordinary day (or birthday, in my case) and making it extra special. This was no exception. So after figuring out how to cover […]

This past weekend I was in Asheville with my mom, my aunt, and 2 of my cousins. My Aunt Julie, for my 21st birthday (I’m 24), promised to take a girls trip with her daughters and my mom and me. I honestly didn’t even realize we never did it until a few months ago when […]

(That sentence is so […]
