Why I’ll Miss Twenty-Seven: Photo Essay.

At the end of this week, I turn twenty-eight. I almost can’t believe how quickly this year has flown by; it seems like only yesterday I was writing about my excitement in turning twenty-seven. Then, I was at this point in my life where I knew anything and everything could happen, and in many ways it did, which is why I’m reluctant to let it go.

But, growing older is better than the alternative, and I love myself a whole lot more at this age than I did at any other, so I am also excited to see what twenty-eight has in store, all the while looking back and smiling on what was twenty-seven.

Here’s a little bit about what I did this year through photos, and if you’d like to read a little bit more about each one, just click on the photo below.

I visited six new countries…

While I know, each new year seems to bring me bigger and better adventures, this was one of the best years of my life, and it will be hard to say good-bye.

Though, there is something truly wonderful about the unknown and I must admit, I am looking forward to all that will come to me this year.

Spread the love

    What a wonderful summary! Sometimes a year goes by so fast that it’s easy to forget how much you achieved and learned… Great post! I loved your photos!

      Thanks, Julika! It really does go by so fast, and doing this really gave me the opportunity to reflect on what an incredible year it’s been. 🙂
