Time is getting away from me in a big way, which seems to be the trend anytime I talk to anyone lately. Adam asked me today what I wanted for my birthday and I was like, “time.” No joke. I thought I’d share a bit about what’s going on lately before it’s next month and I’ve not documented much of this month at all!CONTINUE READING
Every year since I moved to England I find myself getting more and more excited for Christmas! They do it big here compared to where I lived in NY, with Christmas markets popping up mid November, and festive “turning on the lights” ceremonies in cities and little towns alike. Last year was our first Christmas in our new house and since we had only moved in in October, we were still making it our home but managed to get our few decorations up.
Things have been a bit stalled in the home improvement department due to lots of little things going wrong, but not helped by the fact it’s taking a week to get our car fixed. While a home improvement store is about half an hour walk away, I don’t particularly fancy hauling lumber down the road. So we’ve done a few fun things instead!
Remember me? I’ve been around a little on Instagram and even less so on Twitter, but not on this blog. I just haven’t been able to bring myself to sit down at the computer and edit photos and blog when our house has been in shambles. We’ve been working pretty hard to finally put our stamp on it a year later, and we are also finally seeing results. Hooray! Never undergo major structural work while thinking you can paint/do anything anywhere else. The. dust. never. leaves.We have now almost finished off our dining room and I can’t actually wait to share pictures on here. We even laid the floor ourself! Without crying too much! Success!
Last week was actually kind of exciting with plans three nights in a row. I made a banana peanut butter chocolate smoothie that tasted like a milkshake, painted my nails for the first time in ages and saw a lot of people I feel I don’t get to see enough.
