i wrote this poem when i was a senior in high school & every birthday i go back & read it to remind myself of how much i have grown since my delicate seventeen years but also to remind myself that it is ok to make yourself stand out & smell the roses! i have learned so much about life. i have learned to embrace being an August baby & how to do the perfect mani as a lefty. i have learned to cherish the simple things in life & buy myself flowers just because it's tuesday. i have learned that there is never a bad day to drink champagne or dance in the street in your favorite dress + heels, & falling in love teaches you to fancy yourself + someone else. oh & dressing up does make you feel beautiful!
i am so blessed & excited to start a new year! here's to twenty-five. we got this baby girl, you are ready to blossom!!
