And so it begins the next era of my life and it feels so good to make fresh goals and new dreams! Big and small, here they are------ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ (in no specific order I might add) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1.) Learn how to braid my own hair 🙋🏼♀️ 2.) Visit the Hanson Brother Beer Co. in Tulsa, OK 🍺 3.) Buy a house 🏡 4.) Have a few kids 👨👩👧👦 5.) Shoot 30 weddings in 2020 📸 6.) Visit Ireland 🍺 7.) Visit Italy 🍷 8.) Visit the Redwoods in California 🏕 9.) Get a few more tattoos 😇 10.) Buy an SUV 🚘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ that's all folks! Happy Birthday Eve to me! See ya'll tomorrow! 🤩🥳
21.) I have finally mastered putting a top bun in my hair! Only took me 30 years. (I still can’t put a braid in my own hair) 💁🏼♀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 22.) I can honestly say I have gained a sense of fashion that I am proud of. 👠 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 23.) I have a new found love for cooking and really enjoy whipping up some new recipes to try and come oldies but goodies! 🥘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 24.) My favorite band growing up was Hanson and got to see them twice + will snag tickets again if I ever get the chance. 🎼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 25.) I have seen every episode of Friends and can probably recite almost any line from any of the 10 seasons. They probably should’ve just cast me. 🎭
16.) I finished my degree online my last semester and graduated May 11, 2019! 👩🏼🎓 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 17.) After college I took a long hard look at what I really wanted to do for a career. I thought about going back into retail management because I knew with my experience I could land a job with a good company and make a lot of money, instantly. I thought about going into marketing, occupational therapy or radiology. But nothing compared to being in the wedding industry. I just honestly love it and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my time. 💍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 18.) So, I went full time with my business and I invested into educating myself further with my business and bought a ticket to @hustleandflowoffical workshop to pursue my career as a professional wedding photographer. 📸 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 19.) I thought a lot about my future and where I wanted to be within the next five years and knew New Jersey wasn’t a part of that picture. On June 17th, my husband and I picked up and hit the road for South Carolina to start our new adventure. ☀️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 20.) Within the seven months of graduating college, I have put more work and effort into my business than I had the prior six years and it’s been doing the best it ever has! 🤩
11.) My very first time visiting Central Park, I got engaged! 💍 12.) On July 6, 2018 I married my high school crush and my best friend. 👰🏼🤵🏼 13.) I visited Charleston, SC for the first time + rode a helicopter over the USS York and the entire island. 🚁 14.) I traveled 19 hours across the world to Thailand. ✈️ 15.) I bathed an elephant in a giant lake and fed them food I made specifically for their diet. 🐘
6.) I really tested my personal capacity juggling a full time job, running a business, and I enrolled in college to learn more about business. 🤓 7.) I discovered my love for craft beer! IPA’s + Sours specifically. (Okay, not sure if this is an “accomplishment” but it stands out in my head so I'm listing it!) 🍻 8.) I moved to Elmwood Park, NJ where I was 20 minutes outside NYC so I got to live the city lifestyle for a little bit! 🌃 9.) I drove to Portland, Maine for a friends wedding and ate lobster rolls right out of a street cart and it was the freshest lobster I ever had! 🦞 10.) I learned how to ride a train into NYC. 🚃
TOMORROW I turn 30! 🥳 Wow, these years have truly been a great little big life I have created for myself. Join me on memory lane with these next six posts as I share with you my top 25 biggest accomplishments! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Also, you’re gonna want to stop by here tomorrow at 12:00pm for a big announcement with You + Me Studios! I got something juicy up my sleeve for ya'll! 🙌🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ P.S. this photo shoot was BEYOND the funnest thing I've ever done. Thank you to my hubby for playing photographer for the day! 📸 @petey_dz ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Top 25 Accomplishments: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 1.) I’ll forever be grateful for the people skills and management experience I gained at my first career I ever made for myself at Target. I worked there for 12 years . Everything I have learned there has helped me get to where I am today. I held so many positions there and made lifetime friends, literally my four best friends in the entire world are all because of the job and being in the right place at the right time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2.) I bought my first brand new car at the age of 20 with my own money. A 2009 Honda Civic, and she’s still running like a beaut til this day! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 3.) I randomly decided to move away and attend a professional photography school, where I earned my professional photographers certificate and also made some really great friends and awesome connections. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4.) I put a huge focus on my health and I lost 80 pounds! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 5.)I took all my savings and opened up my own business at the age of 23. It was a risk that I had no idea where it was going to take me, but I was willing to find out. In 2011, I shot my first wedding and I never looked back.
