17 Photos for 17 Years

Happy seventeenth birthday to me (am I really old enough to start learning to drive?)! It’s been a fantastic day so far (thank you for your lovely birthday wishes!) and I’m loving all of the celebrations. I’ve not quite got round to making a cake yet like I did for James a couple of days ago, but I plan on getting baking in a couple of days for when we visit family - I’ll be sure to post photos of how it all turns out…

 

You might remember me celebrating James’ 14th last year with a collection of 14 photos from his childhood, so I thought I’d do a similar birthday blog post for my 17th. I had so much fun looking through seventeen years worth of photos yesterday in prep for this post - it took forever but was lovely to take a little trip down memory lane. In the end it was a nightmare trying to narrow down all of the photos to only seventeen, but here’s the final cut…

So that’s a super brief summary of my life so far! I’m looking forward to adding to the collection of photos in all the years to come…

 

Hope you’ve all had a brilliant July and a fab summer. For now I’m off to enjoy celebrating the rest of my birthday with family - I’ll definitely do an update post soon!
