the best is yet to come

After a relaxing and great long weekend in Franklin, TN, i'ts time unfortunately to come back to reality of school and work. But during my mini vacation, some questions were asked about my career and future and quite frankly, it made me a little uneasy. I'm really not sure of what I want to do with my life. I thought I did, but as I was thinking about all the possibilities, I couldn't pin point an exact answer. My mind is racing with ideas and endless possibilities. I guess it's time to buckle down, do a little research, and start figuring out what my next step in life will be. Luckily, I have learned that the best is yet to come!
Isn't that exhilarating to think about?!

never expect, never assume, never ask, and never demand.
just let it be.
because if it's meant to be, it will happen the way you want things to be.

I turned 21 this past Tuesday and it has been such a blast celebrating. First some friends and I had a great birthday dinner at Chuck's {my all-time favorite sushi place}. Here's an awkward picture taken by our server with most of the group.
Then Saturday I went home to celebrate with the family, which was quite a treat since I don't get to see them often.
The night was spent eatting my favorite home-cooked meal {grilled chicken with homemade white bbq sauce}, Edgar's strawberry cake with sparkler candles, and two and a half hours playing Monopoly. Seriously, it was the best family bonding experience . . . I had tears rolling down my face from laughing so hard . . . who knew Monopoly could be so competitive?!

As for the birthday gifts, they really hit it on the nail! I got an Ann Taylor gift card {I'm really excited about that . . . in need of some new Spring pieces} and a surprise pair of Oakley sunglasses. Here are a few pieces I'll be getting with that A.T. gift card.

And here are my sunglasses {Oakley Polarized Hinder)
