    Today is my 25th birthday! Hooray— a quarter century! I’m spending my birthday driving for 11-12 hours to San Diego to see Brighton’s brother, Chase in sunny California.

    Day 14: Proudest Moment Banner from 2012 When I saw this item on the list, I already knew the answer. My proudest moment thus far is creating my own 5K race from scratch, with little to no help from anyone else.   My first race in 2012 In summer 2012, I decided that I needed […]

    The Top of My Bucket List [30 Day Challenge]

    Day 13: Top of My Bucket List (Source) I would love to road trip across the North American Continent. I want to take my time, hit all the major landmarks and national parks, and see what it’s like to just roam. I’ve done a cross country USA road trip with my sister, but we had […]

    5 Current Goals [30 Day Challenge]

    Day 4: Five Current Goals Okay, so remember back in school or at your job training when they taught you about “SMART” goals? Well, let me refresh your memory.
