Today’s my 27th birthday and I officially feel like I’m over-the-hill, moments from tumbling down the other side…lol but seriously. Does this make me a true adult now?

I’ll say that 26 was WAY better to me than what 25 had to offer, and far exceeded the expectations I had set for myself. This year was full of life-changing milestones; from quitting my 9-to-5 job to blog full-time to speaking at TedX and moving into my dream apartment!

But beyond the literal, this year also shed some new life into my soul. I feel like I’ve become a better version of myself, understanding things now that my younger years wouldn’t give me the time of day for.

So in celebration of turning another year “wiser,” here are 27 things I have learned & thankful for these last 364 days. I feel like these are great reminders that should be given some appreciation from time to time

    Hope you had a wonderful birthday! I’m 50 next year and the weirdest thing happens – rather than feeling over the hill you feel on top of the world! You look gorgeous Tilden – such a pretty outfit and you wear it so well xx
