It's my birthday week!

C doesn't believe in birthday weeks. (Forget birthday months.) But I celebrate my own birthday week. With big smiles, and bragging blog posts, and just living in an elated state of mind. And my actual birthday is on Wednesday - so it's pretty perfectly set in the middle of birthday week. Which makes me terribly happy.

I also like to celebrate my birthday by thinking back on the past year and remembering. So....

Here's a favorite moment of each month of my 23rd year:

JuneCelebrating my 23rd birthday with great food & getting my favorite necklace ever.

JulySeeing Katy Perry, the Civil Wars and Iron & Wine all within the same month. It was a month of music & it was awesome.

AugustThe highlight of August was seeing my best friend Meredith for the first time in almost two years (so many great memories!)

SeptemberSeptember is the start of football! Really, with how hot September is here, football's the only thing I like in that month. Ha!

OctoberWhat would October be without a big BANG at the end? We did Halloween on Bourbon Street in New Orleans. Not much more fun than that.

NovemberMy favorite part of November is friendsgiving, going to the local Renaissance Festival and watching football. It may be my favorite weekend of the whole year.

DecemberI love Christmas. But getting Christmas card pictures taken was definitely a new one for us. And I loved them ♥

January: Can you believe I don't have a single picture of myself from January on my blog? It's mostly because January is my slow, thinking month. Lots of growing happens for me in January.

FebruaryI had started a new job, and was still getting calls for interviews. It was a weird growing month for me - way more than January ended up being!

MarchI got my iPhone in March -- which totally changed my daily routine. Amazing how technology can do that!

April: The birth of my niece is the highlight of my year. So precious.

MaySpending a day by the river with family. Now that's a way to end my 23rd year off right!

That's not a bad year, if I may say so myself. It's such a fun ride to go back through & see how I've grown and developed over the year (please remind me to never chop my hair off like that again -- it did NOT look very good on me!). I've learned a lot, and even changed a little.

Here's to a great week - for both me & you! ♥

Happy Monday!
