Capestang, France
Happy birthday to me!

This is the 4th year I'm making one of these posts. That's kinda cool, right? I think writing a blog is the longest hobby I've had. I mean I've wrote this blog for 5 years, and I had at least 2 other blogs before this one so that's probably like... 7 years.

I started my day by going to the market here in Capestang and had a coffee.

When I came home, my mum had bought like 7 pastries from the bakery for us all to try. We always visit this bakery, but only ever buy baguettes -- so it was nice to actually try all the cakes and sweets.

Unlike every year for the past 3 years, I don't really mind being a year older. It doesn't feel like such a big deal.

I think it's because I done a lot in the past year. I don't feel like I'm in the same spot, you know?

I think that's why I feel stressed at my birthday, because I am a year older but it seems like nothing has changed. But this year a lot changed so I just feel normal, I guess.

Does that even make sense? lol I hope so.

Long story short, I am not stressed to turn 22.

It's chill.

22 isn't even old.


  1. 22 isn't old! Happy birthday! It's been so fun reading and following your journeys on your blog!

    1. Oh thank you so much, that's nice of you to say :))))

  2. This was one of the best birthday posts I've probably read, 22 sounds like such a good age! happy belated birthday! x

    1. O dayum, thank you. That's such a compliment :)

  3. Happy birthday Iona! I couldn't agree more; blogging can be so lonely, especially when you have been blogging for so long that the friends you made before no longer exist. Cheers to 22! I hope it treats you as well as it has me.

    PS my name is Casey and I am excited to have just found your blog. Say hi at mine,

  4. 22 IS BARELY OLD! You're lovely darling! Blogging and me is the same story!!

    1. Lol, thank you! And that's so funny that we've been blogging the same amount of time!
