Happy birthday to me! I’m turning 26 and today on the blog I wanted to share a few things you can get for free on your birthday. Because, let’s be honest, who doesn’t like freebies?
I wanted to write something helpful for you instead of talking about myself. I figured you would be more interested in knowing where you could get free stuff instead of reading what I learned last year or what I’ve been learned in 26 years of my life.
Also, if you are part of my email list, expect a gift from me *wink wink*. It’s a surprise! You will only get it if you are subscribed. If you are already getting my emails, you can always check the resource library. I’m always uploading new freebie! Click here to check it out.
Turning 26 is weird. I’m starting my late twenties and it’s scary. It feels like yesterday when I graduated from college and it has been 8 years since I graduated from high school. I try not to think about the things I should be already doing at 26, not because I’m in denial, but because I’m taking a different path and I shouldn’t compare myself with others.
I know for a fact that some relatives don’t agree with my choices, but if I’m happy I don’t care what others think.Open your notes app and add all those gifts you want to redeem on you birthday! Click To Tweet
