It is officially 30 days until I turn 30 (well, it’s 29 but because of my blog schedule I’m saying it’s 30) how crazy is that?! I definitely don’t feel like I’m leaving my twenties in a month, and hopefully I don’t look like it (lol) with this in mind, today I thought I’d share 29 great things that have happened to me in my 29 years of life.
1. Plenty of Disneyland Paris trips. (2 as a kid, and 11 as an adult)
