What is a Golden Birthday?

From the time I was a little girl and heard that your golden birthday was when you turned the age of your birthday, I knew that my golden birthday would be the best year yet. Urban Dictionary has a fun definition too! So this year I am turning 27 on the 27th which makes it my Golden Birthday!

I accomplished a lot while 26 but I want to accomplish so much more being 27. Now that it’s here, I don’t want to disappoint my 5-year-old self.

Birthday Wishlist:

  1. Visit Canada for the first time.
