23 Lessons Learned in 23 Years


I have recently turned 23 (yay!) and reflecting on this, and after being inspired by Mattie Marie’s post, “21 Lessons Learned in 21 Years” and I wanted to make my own, so thank you, Mattie! Check out her site, it is just too cute :).

Anywho, 23… to some this may not seem old, but to me, I do feel old, but in a way in which I am happy with where I am and what I have learned thus far.
