Summer is coming to a close in just a few days and I have to say I am ready for autumn to commence after this Labor Day weekend! Turning 30 has left me with so many feels these past days/weeks/months. It's been a rollercoaster of feeling young, and old, and back to young again. I'm also proud to say I have successfully paid off all my student loans! I wanted to start my 30s on a clean slate. With a bright outlook forward, I'm praying for a new decade of hopes, dreams, and accomplishments. They say 30 is the new 20 after all ;) Cheers to new beginnings!
