Thoughts on Turning 26!

Thought on Turning 26 | Pine Barren Beauty

Happy birthday to me! I can't believe it's already May! Seriously where is time going? Today I wanted to share some random thoughts on turning 26, so here we go: 

*I said to Rob the other day, "did you feel weird turning 26 because it's closer to 30 than it is to 20?" His response of course was no. So I probably shouldn't feel weird about it since age is just a number, but just some food for thought 🤷🏻‍♀️

*The other day on insta, I posted a photo (yep, the one up there) and wrote a caption about trying to become a morning person. I'm a night owl at heart and I never used to think twice about it. Staying up late was normal for me. What was also normal for me (that's not normal for most people) was waking up at 12pm. It just turned into a vicious cycle that I felt like I had no control over. WELL. I do have control over it. Lately I've been getting up early and it's so much more functional. Rob is up early so it just makes sense that I get my stuff done while he's at work. This allows us to have our nights to ourselves, instead of me writing blog posts in bed (for example). This change has come with age, as I feel it probably does for most people who were born night owls. 

*As most of you already know, Rob & I are getting married this fall + we are currently in the process of buying a house! It's so funny looking back, thinking about how when I was younger I would say "I want to be married by 23 and have kids by 24." Was anyone else that way as a teenager? Little did I know there was so much life to live before starting this new chapter. I'm actually glad things didn't happen how I thought they would because I've learned so much and I know that I'm where I'm supposed to be! 

*As I've grown and evolved, so has my blog. Some fun changes will be on the way as Rob & I enter a new chapter of our lives and I'm more than excited! More on that in post later this week! 

That's all I have for today! As always, thanks for reading!
