We Are Young.

After writing this post I did a lot of thinking about how to feel like I'm enjoying where I'm at in life and really just live in the moment. One night last week after pouring over all of your sincere and vulnerable comments (which I really cannot fully express how grateful for them I was without getting a bit teary eyed) I decided that I needed to follow your guys' suggestions. One of my favorite pieces of advice (among the many) was to do things that I might not be able to do were I not in my particular stage in life. I thought that was such a good idea! What better way to appreciate what you have then to....pay attention to it. So I called up a few of my really good friends and we took off for the weekend to Vegas to have a care free girls weekend. We shopped at all of my favorite thrift stores, ate...and ate...and ate and saw one of my all time favorite musicals The Phantom of The Opera. I must say, I like this new take on life.

  3. It looks like you had a lot of fun! I get what you mean. Sometimes I dwell and think "oh I want to be married and have a baby, like right now" But then I take a step back and think "wth are you crazy Mel" lol I'm still so young and I want to travel more and finish school before I do any of that. It's nice to just enjoy where I am in life now.

    They tend to make us spend smell amounts of money on a LOT of things... and then we end up spending a lot haha

  11. I like this idea of living it up while you are young. Because when you get to my age and having babies, boy will you be tied down :O)
