22 Things to Try Now That We're 22
I have reason to believe that Cancer season is the best season. Me and Sabine are officially 22 today! It feels like just yesterday we were six year olds dreaming about all the experiences we would have once we got to this exact point. It’s incredibly surreal to think about!
Every time my birthday comes around, I get super emotional about the journey I’ve been able to have through this crazy life with a twin sister by my side. From the womb to now, I've always had a best friend by my side and I wouldn't want it any other way. There has never been a moment where I didn’t have her in my corner. From laughing hysterically at Bridesmaid to having experience that would have been hard to go through alone, I’m grateful for my relationship with her.
In hindsight, 22 years isn’t a lot of time since we’ve got a long way to go. We just graduated from college and are in the midst of the what-comes-next phase and I’m so ready for what's in store! While it can be easy to get stuck thinking about the future, this year I'm making an effort to stay as present as possible. What better way to do that than by holding myself to a couple of new things to explore this year. Yup! No matter how small or big, it's all about fully embracing each day.
Here are 22 things we hope to experience this year!
