The Birthday Bucket List

Nook Coffee Shop Heaton Moor

Location: Nook Neighbourhood Coffee, Heaton Moor, Greater Manchester

On Saturday it was my birthday, so the celebrations were stretched across the whole weekend! Friday I had dinner with my parents and boyfriend, Saturday I spent most of the day at my Grandma's and Saturday night I went for drinks with my closest friends. Sunday revolved around lunch and coffee - and sheltering from the insane afternoon storm. After recovering from all the celebrations, it's now sinking in that I'm twenty-three - yikes! As I find myself often doing on my birthday, I started to reflect on my achievements. As I look to the year ahead, I have loads of plans and goals that I want to go for,  but focusing on what I've already accomplished I decided to devise a bucket list of things that I ticked off during my twenty-second year! I can't believe how much I've done since May 2015 and it really shows you just how much you can do in a year!
