27 years of lessons learned... Happy 27th to Moi

So here it is I'm 27! Wow I swear I was just 18 and trying to figure out what I was going to be doing with my life, and thinking if I sell my CDs Becca and I could move to LA. Delusional? Maybe a little a lot.

but at 27 I'm feeling a bit old and I'm wondering how the heck am I going to feel when I'm 30? I hope young. No matter the age or the birthday one question remains...

Do I have it all figured out?

My answer? 

No way!

Stock pile on foods you love cause it will eventually go away. This is a sad fact I've learned I've said goodbye so many times some amazing food that I've loved over these 27 years that companies seem to like to get rid of just because I like them. So if it's limited edition and you can consume it don't buy it or make sure you stock pile it!

Taking risks can be bad, but if you don't take them it could lead to regret, don't regret!

Marriage isn't easy. It's hard, you have two people who are different and alike all at the same time, and they are both not always perfect but you make it work and it's worth it.

Middle school is the most awkward years of your life.

You really should enjoy being young because you're an adult for way longer than you are a child.
