16 things I’ve learned in 16 years

And for this Birthday I wanted to do something meaningful, I didn't want to receive lots of fancy gifts. I asked anyone who was going to get me a gift, to donate what they would have spent on me to UNICEF on my fundraising site instead because that's something that really makes a difference to people that need it.

That's why when I started my blog, one of the things I was the most excited about, was finally being able to take photos for this blog and having somewhere to share them.
