As crazy as it sounds to write this, yesterday was my 18th birthday! How on earth am I 18?? I have been looking forward to this age for a long time… One of the biggest reasons? Because I can finally get a Target Red Card!! {Haha, not really, but I did go get one of those today ;)} I’m honestly not sure exactly why 18 sounds like a great age, but it does! I don’t have to legally be home by midnight, I can register for any giveaway, and I’m an adult!! :) Ahhhh!! It’s insane!

Yesterday was an amazing day spent with my family! We drove up to Short Pump to do some shopping, and then came back home to eat on the rooftop of Capital Ale House! I’m so thankful for my family who made it an incredibly special day :) Thanks to everyone who sent me birthday wishes!! I loved each and every one of them!

It’s a rule that if you find a colored wall you have to take a picture.
