OMG I almost forgot- today is my 25th birthday!

I haven’t been too good about keeping up with my blog lately, as I didn’t stop traveling once I got back from my adventures abroad. I will eventually finish blogging since I still want to tell everyone about my good times in London, Barcelona and my last days in Germany; but I’ve been on the go since my feet hit American soil.
I caught up with all my Tennessee friends, visited the fam in Alabama (saw my nephew graduate Pre-School! SO cute),

spent 5 fabulous days at the beach with 15 of my closest high school friends (I know can you believe we still all love each other that much!), and now I’m playing in Sarasota with one of my best friends from college!

As I hit this quarter life ‘crisis’ period in my life, I don’t have any regrets about the past or fears about my future. I’m actually pretty excited about being 25 and can’t wait to start the next chapter as soon as I figure out where it’s going to be! Since I can’t sit still for more than a day it’s hard to say where I’ll end up, and everyday a new idea comes along. Yesterday, I spent a few hours researching Abu Dhabi in the Middle East. I never imagined in a million years I’d even be considering such a place to move…especially not alone at 25. But you know what, it actually looks pretty amazing and if I get the job I just might pack up and try my hand. I’ve been dealt great cards this far and I only see my odds getting better. Besides I’m not sure you can go wrong in one of the richest cities in the world!
Alas, my crazy non-stop, flying by the seat of my pants lifestyle is about to slow down. I am starting a freelance job in Tennessee next week. I don’t think it’s settled in yet that in just a few days my 4 months of traveling will end. Actually, it will never end, just slow down a lot. I’m still planning to hit a few more cities this summer and I’ll be a glob-trotter my whole life!
So cheers to turning 25 and loving my life! I also have to give facebook a little plug! How crazy is it that by 9:20 am on my birthday I’ve already gotten 11 happy birthday wall posts and they just keep coming! Gotta love it!
