Today is the last day of my twenties. Tomorrow, I turn 30. Woof. It honestly didn’t feel real until I had these balloons in hand. And as my best friends come into town for the weekend, I know it’s about to get REALLY real. As I enter my next thirty years, I am feeling more reflective than usual… maybe even borderline panicky. Your twenties are so important! They lay the groundwork for the rest of your life. Did I spend them correctly and efficiently?

 I began this decade in college working towards a career in NASCAR and here I sit at the cusp of 30, a self-employed blogger. And yet, one led seamlessly into the other. Every step forward, setback, experience, tragedy, relationship, and heartache led me to today. And I’m genuinely happy! So I have rounded up the 20 things I learned in my twenties and broke them down into the categories of Relationships/Love, Work, and Life. If only I could give this list to 20-year-old Cortney…

My Favorite True Crime Podcasts

SHOP THE POST:


Hey guys! I am mixing things up on Cort In Session today and sharing my favorite true crime podcasts. When driving in the car, taking long baths, and going for runs, I will undoubtedly pick a podcast over music (much to the dismay of my husband). As such, I have logged countless hours listening to the creepiest true crime podcasts the genre has to offer. There have been hits and there have been misses, but I am here to share my honest opinion of all of them.

Now I don’t want to spoil any of these for you, so I’m going to skim the surface with a quick synopsis. I hope y’all listen and love these because I need some gals to chat with about them!

February has been a roller coaster! For a short month, we sure got a lot out of it. Jeremy and I have been all over the Southeast. We took a quick trip to Charleston at the beginning on the month, then spent a week in Daytona for the start of the NASCAR season, then went to Atlanta to visit my family to round out the month. Y’all may have caught me chatting about it on Instagram recently, but I am finally trying my hand at Lightroom after using Photoshop for years. I purchased the USA pack of these presets and this is my first blog post using them! If you guys have a favorite preset, let me know in the comments. I am having so much fun experimenting.

As the temperature starts to increase and the seasons begin to change, I have been doing quite a bit of shopping. Throughout February, I have found some Spring staples and I wanted to share my favorites with you from fashion to beauty. And keep scrolling to see what y’all’s most-purchased products were this month!
