♡ My 18th Birthday ♡

Dear Darlings,

Today is a special post. It's my 18th birthday ♡

Even just writing that sentence makes my heart so happy, 13 year old me would have been terrified knowing I would make it to this day because at the time I didn't even think I could make it to the next day never mind another 5 years. But I did it and I am so proud of myself. I write this as today is my day to reflect on my life, on how far I've come and the person I'm becoming. And my god I am so proud of her. You did it.

I never imagined my 18th birthday to be spent in quarantine, but despite the circumstances, it has been such a lovely day. I've spent it surrounded by my family who has showered me with love. The most unexpected things can happen yet we make the best out of the situation and this is why this day will be memorable and a story to tell in the future. I feel so blessed that I made it to see this day as it's such a huge change in my life. I'm now an adult and soon a university student! I never thought this would happen.


It’s the first birthday that I can’t spend with my family and I am so upset as I can’t see my Nan but I can’t thank everyone enough for my presents and their birthday messages. I have been completely spoilt. My mum and dad have above and beyond and have made my birthday so special even under these circumstances. My lovely friend Linda, thank you for making me the happiest by getting me a Tiffany and Co necklace. I am completely in love with it. Thank you to to Kelly who made my cake and cupcakes, I’m gutted it’s not a Tiffany cake but you have done amazing and I am so happy with it.


I’ve reached a milestone and I’m so proud of myself. Here’s to adulthood and a new chapter in my life. I wish you all well.

Happy birthday to me.
