25th Birthday + Coachella

Hello! I sincerely hope you're having a wonderful Friday! Today is my 25th birthday & also day one of Coachella! Woohoo! So I'll be out enjoying my day in the hot Indio, CA heat. I've been counting down to this moment for about 11 months since I bought my pre-sale tickets last May. I'm glad it's here & to be honest, I am thrilled to have made it to age 25.

After being alive for 25 years I'd say that life is extraordinarily precious. We only realize how much we value it & the lives of others until it's taken away. Relish those moments. Enjoy those memories, photos, family, friends fondly. Life is filled with trials & tribulations but it's all a part of the big picture.

As for today, I'll be out exploring the polo fields, listening to many of my favorite artists, discovering new ones, eating delicious food, meeting fellow campers, & celebrating 25 years of life & hopefully more to come. Have a great day! Right now...I'm off to have a really exciting three days. 

Have you ever been to Coachella? What's your #1 piece of advice that you would tell someone? :]

  2. That's such a great way to look at things. So many people complain about getting another year older but I like you say, life is extraordinarily precious, so it's just another year to celebrate and appreciate it.

    It's my Birthday soon too and I'm looking forward to doing something fun to celebrate. Coachella though, that's amazing. I hope you have a fabulous day and a very happy 25th Birthday to you! =D

  7. Happy Birthday!!! I've never been to Coachella, although I always thought it'd be cool to go when I was younger. Now I don't think I would be all that into it, but you never know until you experience, I guess!
    And my one piece of advice....travel whenever you have the opportunity, because as you get older and work begins to take over your life, it gets harder and harder to travel. I wish I had the time (and the money) to travel more.
    Enjoy your weekend at Coachella! xx
