27 Things I did before I turned 27

, , Leave a comment

Lately I’ve found myself getting down on myself so rather than focus on the negative, I’m reflecting on things I’ve done. I’ve come a long way and achieved a lot of things for my age. I’m in the process of writing out a bucket list but I’ve done a lot already so here’s a few (27 things to be exact) I’m proud of and love looking at photos or reflecting on.
