My 25th Birthday

Last year, before I turned 24, I made some goals. While I didn't reach all of them, I'd say it was a pretty successful year in the life of Whitney Willis. 

While I was 24 I:
  • Ran my first half-marathon
  • Went to Disney World once and Disneyland four times!
  • Signed up to grant four wishes
  • Moved from Scottsdale to Ahwatukee
  • Went on a Disney cruise
  • Celebrated life with friends, new and old
  • Re-decorated my room in a style all my own
  • Made great strides in my career
  • Watched lots of great TV shows and movies (yes, I consider this an accomplishment)
  • Wrote more
  • Went to Club 33
  • Bought a brand new car
  • Purchased my first ever designer purse (Kate Spade)
  • Grew my testimony of my Savior and the restored Gospel
  • Became a better cook
Throughout my 20's... 20, 21 (skipped 22 - woops!), 23, 24 and 25
I'm grateful for a year full of learning, growing and changing. I can feel myself becoming the woman I was meant to be. I'm preparing for the most important time of my life right now and know one day I will be a wife and mother. When I look back on these days I want to remember life, laughter, adventure and lots of personal growth. I love becoming more comfortable in my own skin and who I am and I think A LOT of that happened this year. 

While I'm 25, I want to:
  • Purchase a condo
  • Use my Disneyland annual pass frequently 
  • Decorate an entire home in my style
  • Grant more wishes
  • Be very involved in my ward
  • Write often and from the heart
  • Date more
  • Travel as often as I can
  • Grow in my career (be promoted)
  • Do more of what makes me happy. 
Cheers to a great year ahead!
