Blog Birthday!

Hey Everyone!

Just a short one from me today to celebrate my little blogs birthday. 5 years old. I remember the day I started it. My school was going through the process of closing down and I needed something, a little project, to keep me going. I loved books and I was forever baking. Thus, booksandbakes1 was born. I’ve never looked back!

I wanted it to be a place for me to talk about the books I loved. I read through my first ever post this morning and it’s still the same for me. I never really expect anyone to read it or reply but I love it when they do. It’s always a surprise to have so many amazing people comment and check in. It’s a really special community.

There are three very special blogging friends, who have been with me since my very first day. Thank you, always.

There’s literally hundreds of blogs I’m inspired by daily. It really does feel like one massive family. I’m really humble to be a small part of it.

My plan for today is to read and maybe bake something. Have a beautiful day everyone!

Big love to you all xx

    • Aw thank you Annika! Hope you donโ€™t mind the shoutout. Iโ€™ve never forgotten the kindness youโ€™ve shown me so I wanted to let you know that.
      I hope you and your family are all safe and well. Mine are but we are apart because my school has always been open. We are a hub for three primaries as well as being open for our vulnerable and key worker children. Letโ€™s see what happens soon! Xx
