Style Icon

Karla from Karla's Closet is pretty much my style icon these days. Dramatic, feminine & funky. And she has a great eye for vintage finds - she has rekindled my love for vintage rhinestones! I've just picked up some great vintage pieces on eBay which I will be sure to share with you all :)

{The List}

I am a wallflower. Big time. I like to sit by and watch others as they live their lives. But as a wallflower, I've found it becomes easier and easier to fade into the background and live your life vicariously through others. As a Christ-follower, I want to regain my zest for the life the Lord has given me so I can serve others. That's why this last year before I turn 30 is the perfect opportunity to get out and explore, try new things and even be scared a little! There are somethings that I've always wanted to do...

1. Lose 30 lbs.
2. Relocate to Colorado - DONE!
3. Leave finger- and toenails unpainted for one month.
4. Go on 3 dates.
5. Make 3 dinners for other people.
6. Write my grandparents letters of appreciation.
7. Get another tattoo.
8. Read one new book every month (see sidebar) (The Skin Map, The White Queen)
9. Go skinny dipping.
10. Take a dinner cruise.
11. Get a knock-my-socks-off kiss.
12. Go to a shooting range & learn how to shoot a gun.
13. Take a sailboat ride.
14. Go to a professional play.
15. Take the GRE.
16. Visit Santa Fe.
17. Do a photo shoot. - DONE!
18. Meet a celebrity.
19. Stay up all night at least twice.
20. Walk a 5K
21. Start a blog. - DONE!
22. Visit California.
23. Get nose pierced.
24. Dye hair red.
25. Bake once a month and give away what I bake.
26. Take dance lessons
27. Do an acoustic music set
28. Go on a missions trip.
29. Take voice lessons.
30. Hike the Grand Canyon.

A Not-so-Formal Introduction

Hello my friends!

I have been sitting here writing several drafts of what is supposed to be the opening letter of a blog about the year that will change my life - trying to say the perfect words that will make me sound witty, charming, and more exciting and accomplished than I really am...

Right now I want to show the real me. Life is hard enough without having to feel like you have to put on a show for everyone. I can tell you one thing: I promise to share the crazy, exciting, and yes, even boring, parts of my journey to 30 with you. I hope that you will laugh, cheer, and eveny cry along with me! My greatest hope is that this blog brings glory to the One who created me, you, and everything around us and loves us unconditionally.

Thank you for joining me on this journey!

xoxo Erin
