I found this instagram account through TWOLA — beautiful poetry
I love anyone who supports this group. To Write Love on Her Arms is amazing.

My Life Lately According to Instagram…

+ I survived and didn’t get eaten by an alligator! I want to go again.

+ We spent Saturday morning walking around the Auburn University campus (where a friend works). This coffee shop was so cute. I loved everything about it + I think I thoroughly creeped this guy out. So, in return, please check out their kickstarter campaign.

+ I spent Friday in Atlanta…why would I do anything other than take a #kaleselfie?

+ Back to Saturday morning (my birthday). Yes, I realize these pictures are out of order. After this we got free breakfast and mimosas at a restaurant in Opelika. Then I headed to Montgomery to swim with some other friends for the rest of the day. On Sunday night, a neighbor threw me a little surprise party (only cake I had for my birthday, actually) and we stayed up way too late laughing and sharing stories. I have to say it was a great birthday weekend!

+My Stitch Fix box Anthony scheduled for my birthday! Here’s the review.


+Now on to a serious note… Turning 26 means I’m kicked off my dad’s health insurance (so thankful I was on it for that long!). But how do I determine which health insurance is good? Apparently the one I enrolled in that starts in September isn’t even accepted at Walgreens…so uh, now what? I think I need to join/create a support group for self-employed people because this stuff is not easy to navigate!
