30 Before 30



On Saturday I turned 27. Not only did this terrify me slightly (seriously, where does the time go?!) it also evoked me to reflect on how much I've accomplished this past decade and what I'd like to achieve in the coming years. Therefore, in honour of entering my late twenties, I thought I'd put together a bucket list of things I'm hoping to fulfill before I hit the big 3-0.

I've accompanied this post with a few pictures from my birthday day out. My mom and I spent the afternoon wandering around Powis Castle before enjoying afternoon tea in a nearby cafe. I'm a total Grandma at heart (as I'm sure you're all aware of by now) so for me it was the perfect way to celebrate!
