This year I…

by Kaylah Stroup
kept the same hair color for nearly the whole year + didn’t chop it all off when it started to get long!
built a couple forts, played with trash, collected beach glass, and stacked rocks along the shores of Lake Erie.
then, the next month, I had a big feature in another magazine! check it out here!

finally saw a real headstone with a skull and crossbones on it!
yeah, my bucket list is a little strange…

got glasses!
 (…and then another pair, and another and somehow ended up with a small collection!)
 started geocaching + found lots of neat places along the way.
put cicadas on my cicacda because yo dawg, i like cicadas.
aka watched 17-year cicadas emerge with great excitement.
 celebrated two years with my favorite human + got an apartment together…
that we still haven’t moved into.
turned twenty-six and honestly had the best birthday party ever.
 hunted down waterfalls all over Ohio.
took more road trips than ever before and discovered tons of hidden gems along the way.

grew a ton of plants then gave nearly all of them away except for my absolute favorites.

created a hashtag for my cat and his stupid faces. 
these ridiculous photos never fair to cheer me up.
crushed on the ocean…
… and the desert. 
discovered that I love coffee.
like REALLY REALLY love coffee.
and found lots of little things to smile about.

And oh so much more!

For the past few years I’ve been doing a “This year I…” post. See 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 + 2015.
