Happy Birthday Me: 26

Hi friends! This is a different post from me. Last month the wonderful Marie wrote a post looking back on her year on her birthday. I thought that was a fun idea, so here my rendition of her fabulous post, on my birthday! Thanks Marie for the inspiration. ๐Ÿ’žโ˜บ๏ธ

So if you didn’t get it… today is my birthday and like I mentioned it would be fun to see my year in review.

I can’t believe another year has come and gone… where does the time go? As much as this past year has had it’s rough spots, it also had it’s good too!

๐ŸŒŸExplored the Rec Room in both Toronto & Mississauga with my friends

๐ŸŒŸI went to a Blue Jays game to celebrate Father’s Day
๐ŸŒŸWent on a boat tour of the Toronto Islands

๐ŸŒŸI began to hate and resent my job
๐ŸŒŸFelt depressed
๐ŸŒŸFelt useless and worthless
๐ŸŒŸFelt completely lost and unsure about the future
๐ŸŒŸSaw my favourite band, The Maine, for the 5th time โค๏ธ
๐ŸŒŸHung out with my friends (maybe not as much as I wanted to, but still quite a bit)
๐ŸŒŸBecame the best grandma bowler, known as “Nonnameg” (which all my friends called me today, and changed our chat name to Nonna Meg Day ๐Ÿ˜‚โค๏ธ)

๐ŸŒŸI baked quite a bit
๐ŸŒŸFelt appreciated
๐ŸŒŸRead a ton of books… at this point I’m at 85 out of 90 for my Goodreads challenge
๐ŸŒŸBlogged my butt off this year

I’m going to leave it here, as I could probably keep going. ๐Ÿ˜‚But as I sit and write this all out, I think I had a pretty good 25th year… here’s to 26!
