Ch-ch-changes!

There are some changes coming for my blog over the next couple of weeks, which is really exciting! I’ve been thinking about and planning on having a major update for a little while, and now thanks to my very good friend Dan at Baltic Design, it is actually going to happen 😊 So there won’t really be much in the way of new posts until my new site goes live (at some point soon – we’re still working on it!), but it will be worth the wait. Promise! I feel like the direction of my blog is going somewhere I never imagined it would, so my blog will have a new look and a new name when it relaunches! I’m keeping that a secret for now…so you’ll have to wait and see… In the meantime, I hope you enjoy looking through the archives of my blog as it is now. See you soon on my new and improved blog!

Can you believe it was a year on Sunday since we got married?! I can’t believe we celebrated our first anniversary this weekend! Last year, my blog was full of wedding-related posts and the run up to the big day went so fast, but this year has actually flown by as well. It has been lovely to reflect on our special day and our first year of marriage 😊 Hooray! To celebrate we had a really lovely day out and a stay in a B&B which was fab – and a lovely surprise which Tom had organised! It felt like we were on holiday…but we did have to go to work on Monday!

If you follow me on Instagram (or you’ve seen the photos in my feed on my blog) then you may already know that yesterday our new Kitchen Aid mixer was delivered! I can’t believe we actually got one, after so long saying ‘I’d LOVE one of those!’. We chose the pistachio colour in the end, as it will look so lovely with our new kitchen when we get it done in a couple of months. That’s another exciting project to tell you about, but that’s for another time!

Project Life

I’m so SO excited to be starting Project Life this month – today, in fact! :-) Project Life has taken the scrapbooking world by storm (just in case you’ve never heard of it) and having admired the kits and bits and bobs that you can get for so long, I’m taking the plunge and starting my first scrapbooking adventure.
