A film camera shot of my younger self in the early 2000's in a purple princess dress
It isn’t your birthday without an obligatory blog post reminiscing over the events from the year that has passed and looking ahead to what your new age is going to bring. This is going up a little later than previous years, I usually have this prewritten and up the week before my actual birthday but you know, life gets in the way sometimes, it’s been doing that a lot lately.

When I think back to being a child and the days I wished away because I wanted to be an adult, I look at myself in the mirror and think, “am I who younger the Fran wanted me to be?” I’d like to think I am. This year alone, I’ve done things that were completely out of my comfort zone, I did a skydive for charity despite having a massive fear of heights, I started a podcast, moved 3 hours away from London, worked with amazing brands... the list could go on. I’m pretty proud of 20-year-old Fran, my life at 20 may not be the fairytale 10-year-old me imagined but it’s been filled with happiness, success and discovery. 

Looking forward, I can only wish that my twenties continue to be filled with more happiness, more successes and more discovery. I feel like the next decade is going to be a big one for me, I’m going to graduate from university, possibly buy a property, have a child, get married or drop everything (after graduation of course) and travel the world for a year or two. 

Who knows where I’ll be but for now, here’s to my twenties!
