Christmas Eve

It's currently Christmas Eve night and I'm snuggled between my two furry little elves watching Stardust whilst sipping on a Magic Star hot chocolate and raiding the Sass and Belle website. James has nipped for some last minute Christmas drinks with some friends after we played a few rounds of cards, drinking loose leaf green tea and watching the last half of the Chamber of Secrets. I can't remember the last time I was this content and also relaxed with being on my own for the evening. Having the dogs definitely helps with my anxiety and I guess the Christmas spirit has finally taken hold of me. Better late than never!

This week my blog reached its one year anniversary and I've been reflecting on all of the opportunities that were in store for me over 2016. What a crazy year its been. I'm super proud of my little blog and everything I've achieved with it over these past 12 months so I can't help but feel ridiculously excited for 2017. I've worked with some awesome brands, learnt so many lessons, my writing has improved which I would also now consider to be a skill and I've really got back into photography again.

The frustration of buying a house and moving house has for tonight, turned into an appreciation of our little flat and our time here together. Its not perfect, but its been our home for nearly 3 years and I've lived here longer than anywhere else since leaving home at 19. It also looks pretty damn magical right now with the fairy lights twinkling and all the beautiful wrapping paper glistening away. 

Tomorrow we're off to my Dads for Christmas, something I haven't done for a few years and I'm so excited to have some proper family time with him. We have whiskey and Walnut Whips at hand and I'll also be attempting some veggie pigs in blankets in the morning. God knows how thats going to go but I'm hopeful! 

Anyway, I hope you're all ready for tomorrow and wishing you a very Happy Christmas. Stay safe, have fun and be merry :)

Much love,
