Happy Birthday to Me -28th Edition

Okay, guys, it’s that time of the year. The 28th year that I have rotated on Earth’s orbit around the sun. Woo, I feel dizzy. I have never really been one for big birthday parties and the older I get, the less I do.

For this birthday post, I wanted to do something different. Instead of writing about 28 things I have learned in these 28 years, I am going to write about 27 things that I loved during my 27th year.

27 Things That Made My 27th Year That Much More Amazing

  1. I got engaged to my best friend
  2. I got to watch two of my closest friends marry their persons
  3. I traveled to Iceland and Switzerland for the first time
  4. Took my sister to New York Fashion Week
