23




















Before we start, I would sincerely like to apologize for the horribly grainy (and cheesy) photograph of my mom and I; my camera has sadly broken down (#RIP) and all I have left to take pictures is my phone. THE WOE

Moving on.

I'm super excited today, because this grand old Monday is my annual day of birth. I still think it's kind of ironic that I was born on Labor Day, haha. But it's always nice to have an extra day off of school to relax, spend time with my family, and slowly age like a fine wine.


"All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be." 
~ Psalm 139:16

23 is kind of an exciting birthday for me, because it is one of my favorite numbers. (It was also the number on my jersey when I ran track senior year.) 22 was great, but I'm hoping that 23 is even better. I want to write more, run more, spend time with God more. Play music, go on adventures. BRING IT ON

+ Interestingly enough, it is also my music blog's first birthday. I'm celebrating by ordering the Sing Street soundtrack on vinyl. I mean, I didn't want to, but these are just the kinds of sacrifices one must make for the sake of music blogging. ;) Have a great Labor Day!

  7. HAPPY BIRTHDAY BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER OF GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love your creative, lovely soul and enthusiasm about praising Jesus through the skills He's given you. I hope 23 is the bomb dot com. (with no literal bombs of course.) And I love that verse from Psalms 139 (my fav Psalm for so many reasons.)

    Also, grainy pics with Moms are the best. Never be ashamed.
