22 Lessons for 22 Years

On October 20, 2022 I turned 22 years old. I have the most amazing friends and family in the world. I sit here exhausted and grateful, waiting for my sheets to finish in the dryer. The last year (21) was beautiful, challenging, and fleeting. It was the first year I felt fully Abigail, even though she is flawed. I felt okay making mistakes and I accepted my successes. It was a good year. Cannot believe this is the third installment of this series, but here’s 22 Lessons for 22 Years…
