I think last year was the first year I didn't post about my birthday celebrations (read my previous birthday posts here). I was in Perth and so didn't really do anything wildly exciting for it like I usually do. I was sad to be turning 26 (hello, almost in my late twenties!), and didn't feel like celebrating much. This year was a little different. I've had a pretty awful 2018 so far with an unexpected loss back at the start of the year. And so I wanted to start afresh with turning 27. 26 was full of heartbreak and heartache, and I wanted to celebrate a new chapter and how far I've come, how strong I've been, and how proud I am of myself.
