Quick 23rd Birthday Recap and Reflection

Last weekend, I celebrated my 23rd birthday. It was probably one of the best birthdays I have had. I want to personally thank everyone for the birthday wishes and for making the weekend so special. Below is a recap of my weekend and a reflection as I embark on this new age!

Overall, the weekend consisted of lots of yummy food (Ruka and Eataly to be exact), plenty of bubbly, some fun in the city, and bowling with amazing friends. I was able to just settle down from a crazy work week and enjoy my time with family and friends! While there are so many pictures and boomerangs I could share, I picked two that showed my fave outfits of the weekend and of course one of beautiful Boston.

Those of you who know me know that I have a special place in my heart for Boston. I lived there for 4 years and really got to enjoy everything the city has to offer. Now that I am no longer living there, it was so extremely special to visit for a night and enjoy it during such a special weekend. I thought about how hard it is to make this transition into the next chapter of my life, working and becoming an ‘actual’ adult. It has yet to hit me that I am no longer in school and now redirecting my focus to adult matters, aka bills, work, and future plans. To me, Boston symbolizes some of the best years so far. Being back there made me emotional because it reminded me that I won’t be able to relive those times and my new life as a 23 year old grad is just beginning.

Remember I told you all I hate change? While I deal with the emotions and reflecting on my past, I also think about my life now and how amazing it is going to be. Twenty-three is about to be an incredible and challenging year. I am embarking on new freedoms and things that I have never had to deal with. But it also brings immense opportunity to travel and be the adult that I am.

It’s a new chapter filled with so many new surprises, and I cannot wait to see what happens.

-XOXO Courtney
