Hannah Turns Thirty - My Life, The Highlights Reel #Hannahturns30


Okay, so I Hannah Rogers is turning 30 this week! On August the 22nd.  At first I was nervous, then excited and although 30 seems like this big scary number it really shouldn't be. One thing I know about myself is that I am super hard on myself and with birthdays, and new years I always do the same thing - I question my progress. 

This year, instead of thinking about everything I haven't yet achieved I wanted to focus on all the weird and whacky things I have achieved. I sat down, I wrote a list and I'm super proud. 

30 years x 365 days = 10, 950 days! WOAH that's a seriously long time but its also gone pretty quickly! 

I'm sure I have forgotten something and I'm not sharing everything but here are some of the epic things I have achieved, in no particular order.
