And do I feel different?
No, because do I feel those things from one day to the next?
Of course not.
But, I am different and I am older and I am wiser (even if it is just a tiny bit wiser). Being 11 has bought me so many amazing experiences, including starting secondary school, getting to treat my family to a lovely stay at Watergate Bay hotel, because of this blog, meeting new people, attending the Waterstones Children's Book Prize awards and so many more. I was 9 when I started What Lexie Loves (or Lexie Loves as it was called then) and now I'm 12. It's incredible how time flies.
I had a great birthday, got to see family and received some really nice presents, including tickets to see Capital's Summertime Ball, a make-up lesson at Bobbi Brown, rollerskates and more. I would just like to appreciate how fortunate I am to be able to get those things.
Anyway, now I'm part of the 12 club! Also, a really good blogger friend of mine (Rukiya) is hosting a mini Blogger Choice Awards, so go check that out and vote (I'm hoping to win Best Choice Book Reviewer so if you enjoy my book reviews it would mean the world if you went and voted me for that - (by the way, no pressure if you don't want to, it would just mean a lot)).
