(July 14, 2017) Today is my 24th and three-quarters birthday, which is completely insignificant to most people, but this week I am moving into my own apartment.

Therefore, I feel as if I am officially “adulting;” leave it to the millennial generation to come up with a term for being responsible and taking care of one’s self without financial support.

These past few months have really taken a toll on my personal relationships with those whom I surround myself with on a regular basis. I have realized it’s really important to hang out with people who spread positive vibes.

I see life as a competition with myself. If one of my friends is doing something awesome, I will tell that friend and continue to do me and my awesome things. Ironic considering I’m a former beauty queen, but even competing in pageants, I knew my value as a contestant.

In regard to life, I know my own worth, and that’s an important quality when building new friendships and relationships.

Speaking of friends, catch me and mine celebrating our crazy, beautiful lives at a few of the places below. We’re always out and about!
