25 Memories from 25

Two weeks ago I celebrated my 26th birthday! I always really enjoy my birthday and this year was no different. I started out the day with a birthday run in the crisp morning air while listening to my favorite tunes from Hamilton. Once I got back I had the pleasure of opening up gifts that my parents had sent to me and they totally nailed it! Exhibit A:

I spent the day at work which I didn't mind at all because my staff is awesome. They greeted me when I walked into the office wearing party hats and with a coffee and a breakfast sandwich with a candle in it! They also gave me other fun treats like a card, some flowers, and a tiara to wear. It was all super adorable! We ended the work day with a trip to our favorite local ice cream joint - Cindy's - YUM.

I also got to spend some time with Brett in the evening. We got Chinese food, Mai Tais, and Brett gave me an amazing birthday gift - a Garmin Forerunner 230! I love it and have been wearing it along side the Fitbit my parents got me ever since. Now I'm forced to be the most in shape person in the world - I have no excuse!

25 was a really great year for me. A lot of big things in my life happened and I thought with a great start to 26, it's a wonderful time for me to reflect. So, without further adieu, here are 25 memories from being 25!

1. Graduated with my Master's Degree! This is something that had never really been in my life plan, but is something I am extremely proud of.

2. I was offered and accepted my first full-time job at Mount Holyoke! 

3. I ran and completed my third marathon, and even better - PRed!

4. Road tripped to Canada with my two awesome friends Erin & Cullen!

5. Paddleboarded for the first time!

6. Went to my first Patriot's game and had a blast (even though they lost)!

7. Taught Paint n' Sip classes for the first time, and loved it!

8. Cheered on my mom as she completed her first triathlon!

9. Completed my 2nd Orientation at Bridgewater and made a great new friend, Kacie!

10. Moved into my first honest-to-God-rent-paying apartment as a real life adult.

11. Tried bubble tea for the first time.... I'm not a fan, haha. It tastes like flowery perfume for some reason.

12. Saw New Found Glory live with YellowCard!

13. Celebrated 3 years with Brett!

14. Flew to sunny Florida with Rob for a mid-winter getaway!

15. Saw Brett walk at his Graduate Commencement! We both have Master's degrees! Woop woop!

16. Went to see Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens on the premier night with Cullen, Erin, and Brett!

17. Started to be a lot more conscious about what I eat and very recently made the decision to stop eating pig meat. This diet change is a bit of a journey for me and I'm curious to see where it goes.

18. Got to see Brett's Aunt and Uncle get married literally in Lake Ossipee - one of the coolest weddings I've seen!

19. Road tripped with Brett to New Jersey for New Year's!

20. Had Christmas on Thanksgiving with my family!

21. Had dinner with both Brett and my side of the family at Patriot's Place - the first time all of us getting together!

22. Discovered and fell in love with Hamilton. Seriously. Can't. Stop. Listening.

23. Went on our annual trip to Cape Cod!

24. *Officially* changed my residency to Massachusetts... my Granite State Heart died a little inside...

25. Started to think more creatively and seriously about my YouTube channel and set goals to grow my viewership and subscribers. I have a lot of fun with my YouTube channel and I would love to continue to see it grow overtime! (I have a goal of reaching 500 subscribers this year - fingers crossed that I can make it!)

Here's to another great year! <3
