Hey party people!😂🎉
Guess what?! Nah, you don’t have to guess- it’s right in the title. It’s my second blogiversary! It seems like just yesterday when I posted my first blogiversary Q & A post and made my blog. Anyway, I’m not going to ramble, but just know that I am extremely thankful for all of you who have contributed to my amazing blogging experience! I am hoping that this blog will take me even farther in the years to come❤️❤️
In light of my blogiversary, today I will be sharing the Epic Birthday Blog Tag (
even though my actual birthday isn’t until June 29th)! Thank you to the lovely Sam @ River-Moose-Reads for tagging me, and be sure to check out her wonderful blog!❤️

Tag as many bloggers as you can! (At least 1+ so the tag won’t die!)
WHEN’S YOUR BIRTHDAY (MONTH + DAY)?
Mine is June 29th, and my blog’s is April 10th.🎉

WHAT’S YOUR BIRTHSTONE?
Here are mine:
Here is my blog’s:
DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH THE SAME BIRTHDAY?
Yep, I have met a few people sharing the same birthday as me! It’s so awesome to meet my birthday twins, especially if they were born during the same year as me.
For my blog, I feel like I have met people with April 10th birthdays as well, but I can’t recall who right now.🙈

WHAT DO YOU USUALLY DO TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY?
It differs from year to year, but I usually have a party of some sort with my friends and go out for dinner with my family.
WERE YOU BORN IN THE MORNING, AFTERNOON, OR THE NIGHT?
Both my blog and I are afternoon babies.☀️
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY PRESENT IN THE WORLD, WHAT PRESENT WOULD IT BE?
I have too many ambitious present ideas in mind (such as a massive swimming pool in my smallish backyard- too extra?), so I’ll just list a few books:
- Save the Date by Morgan Matson (I need that yesterday😩)
- A Thousand Perfect Notes by the legendary Cait @ Paper Fury (WHYYY is it only being published in the UK and Australia?!!😭)
- Starry Eyes by Jenn Bennett
- Leah on the Offbeat by Becky Albertalli
Or better than any books (sorry😕), maybe a trip all around the world? Maybe I’m pushing it a little?
WHAT’S YOUR EARLIEST BIRTHDAY MEMORY?
One of my earliest birthday memories (my 3rd birthday, I think) is having a party at a farm and I was the only one who didn’t want to ride a horse. Ahh, I was a strange child.😂😂
HOW DID YOU GET YOUR NAME?
I think I remember my mom telling me once that part of why she named me Kayla was because when she was pregnant with me, whenever I kicked her stomach (which was apparently not very often), she would say ‘okay’- a story among those lines. My parents also really liked the name and didn’t know anyone growing up with it, and I was also named after my late grandfather who died a few days after I was born.
HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN YOUR BIRTHDAY?
Nope! I’m always in the mood for it when it rolls around.🙂🎉
BOOK FLASH: 5 BOOKS YOU’D WANT TO BE GIVEN ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY!
Let me redirect you to the question of what presents I would want! Anyway, I guess one extra book I’d want would be Someday by David Levithan!
