Travel Diaries: Miami, Florida

Its 10:30 am on September 5th the day before my birthday. I am packed up and quite excited to be going on a much needed get away. My bae and I decided in honor of my special day we would go on a very small road trip to the closest beach about 4 hours away. As he picked me up that Saturday morning he had something bigger in store. With help from mom they both presented me two plane tickets to Miami, one for him and one for myself! Needless to say I was b e y o n d excited (especially since I've never been on an airplane before). After I composed my self and showed my mama and bae with hug and kisses we were out the door and on our way to the airport.


The trip itself was AMAZING. On my previous trip to the Bahamas (check out my Bahamas Travel Diary here) we were not able to visit any of the beaches due to the weather. This time around mother nature was on our side and we were able to enjoy the scenic beaches and explore the city of South Beach.


While walking around and exploring the city was fun, of course since were in Miami we had to do it big. We rented a 2014 Ford Mustang in order to do so and a drop top was oh so necessary. We cruised around the city and enjoyed a low key evening in the heart of Miami for my birthday.


This is by far one of the best birthdays I have ever had. For the past few years I have been unenthusiastic about birthdays. The concept of getting older is a constant reminder of where I want to be in life. It was not until recently that I have realized that birthdays should be celebrated. Not only are you blessed to see another year but I have also realized that you are only as old as you feel. Age is simply a concept. Being in my early 20s is very difficult especially as a recent college grad but I am figuring myself out taking things one day at a time, cherishing everyday and always living in the moment. Living this way will help you feel forever young. Am I where I want to be in life? No. But am I okay with it? Absolutely. I am figuring out myself more and more each day and I am truly blessed to be able to learn and grow for many years to come. For that reason I am celebrating. Heres to another year!
