I miss my blog!

I have missed my blog!

Everyday last year I posted something on this little space of internet relating to my life. I won’t lie some days I found it a bit of a chore, some days I thought my life was just too boring to have a blog and others way too stressful, but I really did love posting my pictures.
2017 was such a drama filled year for so many reasons and when 2018 came around I wanted to leave all the drama behind me. I’m happy to say that for the most part that has actually happened.

IMG_20180606_113306_759.jpgJanuary came around and I wasn’t sure that I wanted to do another 365 days of photos again. I didn’t really want to give up my blog and my little space but I didn’t know what to do with it. In March I thought about starting up again but for some reason managed to convince myself that March was too late in the year to start and there was no point to it
(Yes I realise this is stupid now …. Only taken me 3 months to realise this  haha!)

At the beginning of May, I got an email to tell me that I needed to pay for my WordPress plan again and my domain mapping. It didn’t cost me a lot so I just let it roll over. It started me thinking about my blog again and how I wanted to use it; to make something of it again. I missed my blogging, and a couple of things that happened made me decide to finally get myself sorted & online.

So what sparked my want to get back into blogging?
There were a few things:

My wonderful boyfriend asked me to marry him and I literally can’t tell you how happy I am. I wanted to share this with everyone and yeah, I wanted to write about it on my blog! (I will write a whole post directly dedicated to this lol)

I went to a blogging event with my friend as her plus 1 (much more successful blogger than me lol) and I just loved every minute of it.

IMG_20180606_112646_569.jpgI missed being able to look back at the beginning of this year and see what had happened. I mean, We got a dog!… he started off tiny and he’s so big now; I feel like I should have documented this more.

IMG_20180420_103706_804.jpgI also started drawing these little cartoon characters on my Ipad, about me and my other half mainly, but occasionally about friends too. Rich said that I should put them on my blog and that should be a reason to start it up again.

So, I’m going to be updating my blog a little bit and making it a bit more of a “lifestyle” type blog focused on the things that are happening in my life and the things that interest me & my little doodles.

It might be a disaster, it might be a success but Hey! Stick around, see what happens ….. it could be fun!

Day 31- Goodbye 2017

It was a mixed bag of a year; some not so great things happened in 2017, but thankfully I feel they were outweighed by the wonderful things that did happen this year.

Amy-lou and Scott welcomed little Oliver into the world and he is just so adorable and squishy. Eleanor has grown up to be a wonderful, polite big sister who is just so fun to be around and I am so blessed to be their friend.

I went to Venice with Rich, for the most amazing holiday. We had the best time, just away from it all experiencing the beauty of Murano and Venice ❤ We probably won’t be going away this year as we are hoping to save money through 2018 to be able to move in together in 2019!

We had Leanne’s Hen weekend, which was full of laughs and cocktails. It was really nice to have a weekend where we all got to be together and even make new friends with the Girls she went to Uni with.
And on the 1st September Leanne and John became Mr and Mrs Adams 🙂 ❤ It was the most beautiful day, the sun was shinning and there were smiles all around as we all celebrated the day. It was truly an amazing day and it was such an honour to be a part of it all ❤ Love you guys!

Kirstles and Adam started booking things for their wedding and are getting things sorted for that. Kirst and I keep working every day, making each other laugh even in the times when it can get a bit stressful.

And finally, Rich and I spent our first Christmas together 🙂 It was really lovely and we are looking forward to many more together.

There are so many other little things that have happened and people that have made my 2017 a good one and although I won’t list them all off they know who they are, and I am hoping they will stick around for 2018!

This time last year I set myself the challenge of posting a photo everyday (Apart from the 11th March) for the whole year to document my 2017, and today on December 31st I can say that I have done it. Admittedly they weren’t always posted on the right day but there is a photo on this blog for every day in 2017 and I am so glad I did it. I haven’t decided where 2018 will take me with my blog or if I will continue to post a photo every day but I am looking forward to the things that this new year will have to bring!

Happy New Year!
