On Thursday, a chapter of my life closed, and on Friday the next one began. After three years I am no longer a Talented Talker, and right now I don’t have a job to go to. Today I am super excited to fly to San Diego and spend a few weeks soaking up the sun and doing some exploring, before coming back to London and enjoying the summer.
So other than the current frantic packing that I’m doing, what's making me happy this week?
One // Dinner with Erica. Your friends are the foundations that build you up, and I love taking the time and chilling out with them. On Tuesday Erica and I went sampling Italian food at Vapiano and drinking Prosecco. Lovely.
Two // Celebrating my sisters success. I am so proud of my little sister, who will graduate with a degree in speech therapy this summer. She is a perfect example of turning your life around, having dropped out of college years ago, being made redundant and then deciding to change her life. She’s also struggled with a lot of health issues, and she is my inspiration, so to learn she did really well in her exams this week was fantastic news.
Three // Our weekend in York. We had a fantastic weekend in York, wandering the walls, the minster, the Lavender Gardens and dining in the AMAZING The Star Inn The City (thanks for the recommendation. Bee!)
Four // Getting to see my friend Jessica on the way home from York. We were thick as theives as teenagers but since she moved to Pontefract I don't see her enough. We had a fantastic catch up and I'm totally thankful to have had the time.
Five // Looking at honeymoons. We have a lot of life plans running at the same time, and a heap of options, so it depends which one works out. We have been looking a lot at where we should go on our honeymoon, and are currently torn between Vietnam, Japan and St Kitts and Nevis. Each has its own appeal and looks amazing.
Five blogs I love:
Amanda's review of The Rum Kitchen - we went a few weeks ago and loved it so glad to see the Notting Hill branch is as lovely!
The cherry blossom in Ally's post here makes me happy.
Becky's fantastic take on this hot pink skirt, doesn't she look fab?
Kiki's stroll through Keukenhof Gardens, in tulip heaven.
And finally, dreaming about eventually sorting out my terrible nails (it's long overdue!) with this inspiration from Emsy!
Which would you choose for honeymoon? Have you been? Or do you think we should go somewhere else?
