2018 has gone by very quickly and it was a year filled with highs and lows, but there were certainly lessons learned, that have set us up for the coming year.
Every year comes with surprises but 2018’s surprises weren’t so great, the planned times were amazing but other than those I have loved and lost these are the main memories I would like to take with me for 2018.
Heading to Porthmadog for my hen party was great, and an amazing surprise. I had visited this place for years as a child, as my family owned a caravan there and this was our only holiday every year – looking back it was great.
We spent the weekend celebrating and it got a little messy but the last night we spent pampering ourselves so we were ready to leave on the Monday. I just wish I had of taken more pictures, but I guess, you don’t when you’re enjoying yourself in the moment.
Our wedding was amazing, and truly was one of the best days of my life, and I would do it again.
Finding a venue and planning can be stressful but on the day I totally didn’t care because there was nothing I could do about it, so I just focused on having a bloody good time. This would be my advice for any bride to be – just enjoy yourself.
Sicily was the perfect place for a honeymoon it had everything we could possibly want. The glorious beach, a great hotel, shopping, history, and good food… take me back!
Moving into our new home about one year ago I would like to have done more than we have, but when we look back we’ve done a lot. This picture shows how much we have done to the toilet.
This year we would like to continue updating the home and we have already started in the living room. The only issue is that every room seems to be grey and white – think we need to widen our colour palette.
After losing someone very close to me last year my family has become even closer and we are making sure we have celebrations as frequently as possible because this is what matters. My family is quite big and it can be difficult to keep up with what’s going on with everyone but it is important to make the time and I will cherish the times we all spent together in 2018.
When looking at your memories in this way the year seems so much better, and perhaps the good times were overshadowed by the odd negative experience. This year I plan to remain positive and implement techniques I have learned to do this such as meditation, The Law of Attraction, and exercise. Come on 2019!
