Reflecting on 24

Tomorrow I turn 25 and I feel this immense sense of excitement for what this year means to me. In the past, I set so many benchmarks for life: where do I want to be by then, what do I want to be, what makes me look successful to society, etc. This year, I feel this huge shift taking place and it’s really, really badass.

Teddy and I have had many talks about wanting to see more of the world, experience more and live out what we have always wanted before we start a family. HUGE.

slow days

It’s Friday! There is an ice storm hitting St. Louis today leaving us to stay inside due to slick roads and freezing temps and honestly, I’m not that mad about it. We have both been working from home today, snuggling with Z and listening to records on repeat. Teddy got me this record player for Christmas this year and I am beyond obsessed.

I have been obsessed with The Civil Wars for years and am bummed they are done making music but super happy that I found their album! I love days like these. The slow nature of them along with the unexpected productivity that comes about when you have a free mind to do whatever you please. There is magic in these days. I hope that everyone has a safe and happy Friday. Stay warm <3 xo-ash
