31 Things

IMG_6269 1In honor of my birthday today I thought I would share a list the same length as my age.  It is an age I feel comfortable in.  More comfortable than some of my twenties.  I feel like I have found a place to grow and our home is comfortable and nice, but still offers me a lot of chance for working on projects and renovations that are non-urgent.  My taste in many things (from fashion to craft projects) seems to have hit its stride and I am no longer feeling like I am out of place in who I am or what I am doing.   How much would you love to go back in time and tell your 22 year old self not to follow every trend in every fashion magazine, it only leaves you with a closet full of clothes to give to Goodwill when you discover your own personal style.

As I turn 31 today, here is my list of 31 things I love…

  1. My family
