Hello 2016!

Sitting here writing this post, I am feeling thankful, and grateful for the year we've had. Sure we have had our ups and downs but we made it to the end of the year, happy, healthy and as a family. December was hard, we were worried about Sam's job as we would find out weather he would be made redundant on the 31st. Luckily we found out that the new company wanted to keep him and his job was secure. It didn't stop us worrying all over Christmas and trying to spend as little as possible just encase the worst happened. Of course this had a effect on my anxiety, I spent a whole month worrying about the smallest things and to be honest I'm so glad to move on from this year. 

While it ended on a low there was a lot of good, Emily had her first family holiday to Bluestones, I became a auntie, and Sam became a big brother. Emily adores both Lily and Bobby especially with them being so close in age to her. We went on another family holiday, and celebrated Emily's first birthday and watched her grow into a fully fledged toddler with a massive attitude. Emily is such a chatterbox, constantly picking up new words and stringing together sentences, her favourite saying is 'oh dear' and whenever she accomplishes something she will say 'taa-daa'. We have watched her learn to hold herself up, crawl and walk this year. I am so proud of the little girl that she has become, and I can't wait to spend 2016 watching her grow and her speech develop more.


I have had many opportunities through my blog this year, and worked with lots of lovely brands. I hope to continue to work with them, and also bring you more interesting content this year. Thank you to all my readers who have supported me so far. I also ventured into vlogging this year, and the support I have received has been overwhelming. So thank you.

Happy new year guys! From my family to yours.
