Could I have done this better? Did my opponent and I both miss any blunders?

For once I'm really happy with a game and I don't think I could have made any better moves. Could I have done this better? Did my opponent and I both miss any blunders? Any advice would be appreciated.

You never need to play perfectly, you only have to play better than your opponent. Which you did quite well in this game. The only real improvement I see is 11.O-O or g3, which save the g-pawn. 19. f7+ Ke7 20.Ng6+ is a later alternative, but 19.Nf3+ works well enough.
I'd prefer 21.h4 first instead of 21. Rf5, that way on Bxg5, hxg5 protects the passed pawn. Doesn't really matter at that point though.
