Dear 20’s,

Now that I am just a month away from saying goodbye to you, it’s really hit me how awesome you really were. Not that I ever doubted you…I have always realized how good you were.

Being in my 20’s was a hybrid of being an immature teenager and a full-fledged grown ass human. But now, as I enter the uncertainty of real life adulthood, I dread saying goodbye to all the great things about you in place of aging ovaries, wrinkles, a slower metabolism, putting money into RRSP’s, pressure to have babies, sleepless nights with babies, a potential mum bum and so many more horrible sounding grown-up things.

Thank you for all of these amazing memories from the past decade that I hope to never forget. Also, thanks for digital technology not existing on the level that it does today so my super questionable fashion choices can’t be scrutinized.

Thank you for Wednesday nights at the Max…without them I would never have met the love of my life. (Ok, we already knew each other, but we may not have ended up together

Thank you for the time I got so drunk at a wedding I got trapped inside a tent and threw up everywhere…I hope to never get that drunk again.

There is thankfully no photo evidence…but there is evidence of this night, a night Kettlewell will likely never erase from her memory. #welcome

Thank you for my first home purchase…and my first pet purchase. 

Sometimes I regret the pet purchase…but, then I just look at that face <3

Thanks for my PIC. 

I can count myself among the lucky few who have found a true match for my soul.
