23 before 24: the official list

Welp, I'm officially 23.
I don't feel any different other than the IMMENSE amount of gratitude I have after everything that happened yesterday, which has carried onto today and probably will continue throughout all my days.
I was feeling so grateful, so blessed, so loved that I cried at one point last night.
It would be literally impossible to count all my blessings. I have WAY too many.

I plan on making a special post about my day, but that'll probably come after the holiday. 
Here's a little taste of something that happened...
yeah, they blindfolded me and took me somewhere AWESOME!

But anyways, a couple days ago I shared this post about making some goals for myself for this year.
I wanted to show you my completed list of 23 before 24!

1. Thank God for what he's given me every single day
2. Take a girl's road trip to visit Aunt Laurie & Uncle Chris in Florida!
3. Get crafty as much as possible (at least 10 new crafts)
4. Watch a meteor shower from start to finish
5. Finish knitting a scarf
7. Apply for a teaching job in Florida...(why not? I have nothing to lose!)
8. Get a great beach bod (before summer) maybe next year...
