Helen Keller's House and Turning 25.

Last week I took a pre-birthday day trip with my parents to
Tuscumbia, Alabama where we visited
Helen Keller's birthplace and childhood home.
I've always loved the story of Helen Keller ever since I was a kid,
so to go there and walk around where she once did was pretty cool.
I love being able to see and touch history.

Original floors from the 1800s. <3


March 30 was my birthday.
Hello, 25.
You are not what I thought you would be.
Growing up I just knew that by the time I was 25 (18, if I'm being honest) I would
be married, have kids if I decided I wanted them, have my career in place,
and would be strolling along in life.
I have no idea what I am doing with my life.
I'm  trying not to panic. I'll let you know how that goes.
I had a lovely 25th birthday.
It started out rocky, but it got so much better.
I really had a nice day.
As you get older, birthdays become less about the presents
and more about the people.
I got so many messages and texts from people,
and while I don't hear from most of them except for on my birthday,
it's nice to know they either remembered or took the time to shoot me a quick Facebook message
when they noticed it was my birthday.
I am very thankful to have the people in my life that I have.

I visited Hellen Keller's house when I was a teenager. Very humble, too bad she became a communist.
