As I am sure you have noticed, my posts have been few and far between this past year or so and posting frequently is something I really miss. I miss documenting the simple things in life that make me happy, the little moments that make life precious and I miss connecting with you.
I write online content for my day job, so sometimes the last thing I have the energy for at the end of the working day, is creating my own content, even though it is truly the first thing I want to do. Writing and photography bring me so much joy, I just need to prioritise and manage my personal time more efficiently.
Thankfully spring has arrived and the days feel so much longer, for which I am very grateful. As soon as I see the first of the spring bulbs burst into life, followed by the blossom trees, I feel as though I too have woken from a deep winter slumber and productivity can once again resume.
Since my last post in October, Nathan celebrated his birthday and went all out with another fantastic Halloween display. He has already started to make all manner of scary things for this Halloween! Five weeks later it was time to celebrate my birthday and then we had a lovely Christmas and New Year. So far, 2016 has been very productive and positive. We have booked a summer holiday (more on that to come) and I have a new (to me) car, which makes my daily commute all the more enjoyable. Poppy turned six, which we could hardly believe, we still think of her as a puppy! Nathan and I celebrated our sixteenth anniversary, which again baffled me, how are we old enough to have spent sixteen years together, when we are only in our mid-twenties…oh yes, we are actually in our early thirties!
For quite some time I have felt as though something has been missing and I have been craving a creative outlet. Then it occurred to me, the thing that I have been missing has been here all along.
I have been blogging since June 2009 and whilst there have been a few weeks (and months) of silence along the way, I could not imagine my life without it. This is a place where I can share my passions, hobbies and the small, but dear moments in life. Where I can communicate with like-minded people who share my enthusiasm for living a joyful life and finding the beauty in every day.
