This weekend, I celebrated my 24th birthday. To celebrate, we went to Whiskey Jar to enjoy drinks and eats.
In light of my new cooking adventures, my girlfriends got me the perfect gift from Anthropology!
My parents came to town and we went wine tasting at Blenheim Vineyards.
I celebrated with lots of other mature 24-year-old activties.
(By the way, a rice cake pizza is a genius snack. Thanks Sara!)
Age is overrated. 🙂
In light of getting
old older, here are some inspiring quotes from articles that I read this weekend:
“The human mind is a miracle, and you will never see it spring more beautifully into action than when it is fighting against evidence that it needs to change. Your psyche is equipped with layer after layer of defense mechanisms designed to shoot down anything that might keep things from staying exactly where they are.” -David Wong, “6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person”
“Youth is a time of total empowerment. You get to do what you want. As you mature and gain new responsibilities, you have to be very intentional about making sure you don’t lose sight of what’s important. The best way to do that is to make investments in your life so that you can have an effect on who you are in your later years.” -Jeff Goins, “Why You Should Travel Young”
Have a Marvelous Monday!
