How is it 2020?

Where has 2019 gone?

Sometimes I honestly feel like that I blinked and whole seasons went by last year… but all jokes aside, not only have we begun a new year, but an entire new decade.

I feel as though this year I will attempt to get my s**t together (lol, jk) but it’s a new year and I’m excited for it.

This entire decade has been a little insane. In 2010, I was 14 years old with my first long-term relationship (lol we were together till right before my 18th 😱), I visited New York on a school trip and was basically a baby.

In the entire decade, I went through another long-term relationship and ended that, visited over 20 countries, went to university and graduated with a LAW DEGREE, bossed tinder and met my other half πŸ₯° and so much more. I relaunched my blog under a newwww url #excitingtimes and started an instagram to match πŸ’πŸ»β€β™€οΈ

It’s been a real adventure in the past ten years and I’ve learnt a lot – like how to squat properly, how to take a decent selfie and how to just enjoy myself. And it’s crazy to think that it’s now a fresh year – I’m super excited to see how it goes!

Check out my insta to see my 10 year difference!

So, as it’s a new year, that means a whole new list of challenges and this year it’s 20 things in 2020! The challenges I didn’t complete in 2019 have come over to the new year…
