Twenty Four Things in my Twenty Fourth Year


Today is my twenty fourth birthday - I can't quite believe I am that 'old' now and when people ask I have to stop myself saying 21/22 automatically. Where is the time going? Anyway today I thought I would share 24 things I've done since I turned 23 last year. It's always fun to look back on all the good things I've done and everything I've achieved too. A lot of really big things happed in the last year including graduating and moving in with my boyfriend. 

I'm having a nice chilled birthday today. It's my favourite day of the year so as far as I'm concerned I get to enjoy it how I want too. I spent the morning baking red velvet cupcakes then came to my parents for lunch. I'm going to spend sometime doing blogging things this afternoon then later by boyfriend is coming round for tea. I cannot wait!
