A Wedding & Getting Sick


A Family Wedding & Getting Sick

This weekend has been a bit of a mixed bag…and super busy. We had a wonderful time celebrating the wedding of my fiancé’s sister, staying a couple of nights away from home and getting involved in all the festivities. Only slightly blighting the weekend was the fact that I started to feel sick from Friday and have pretty much been feeling crappy ever since. Blocked sinuses, headaches, a sore throat, it doesn’t feel good at all, but I’m hoping I’m on the back end of it now and over the next few days I’ll get back to feeling tip top. Have a great Monday.

Currently Listening To…

Growing up in the UK, we weren’t introduced to Country music ’til we discovered it ourselves when we in our teens and my favourite song was ‘Amazed’ by Lonestar. We slowly started to enjoy more of it, from Carrie Underwood and Rascal Flatts, to Miranda Lambert and early Taylor Swift. Lady Antebellum have been my personal favourite since I first heard ‘Need You Now’ and I knew I had to download everything they’d ever recorded. Their newest album is currently on repeat for me and their latest single, Bartender, is just perfect. So, this is currently what I’m listening to.

Five Words Friday

Five Words

I read a super interesting article over at A Cup of Jo last month, which mentioned a game that Nora Ephron would play at restaurants which involved writing down 5 words that would describe herself. She explains how that would change over the decades and I thought it was such an interesting concept so I thought I would dedicate a space to it here on this fine Friday. Obviously these things could change, depending on the kind of day you’re having, but I think they’re probably pretty solid at different times of your life and so I’m not going to let anything that might’ve happened today or this week describe me at this point in my life. Give this a go yourself if you fancy the challenge.

10 Reasons to Love Autumn

Favourite Things About Autumn

This is definitely one of my favourite times of the year – don’t get me wrong, I love the Summer and am always pretty sad when I have to hang up my warm weather clothes, but there’s just something so special about the Autumn and the exciting times that come with it. And don’t even get me started on the Christmas countdown! Here are just a few of my favourite things about this time of the year:

  • Pumpkin spice lattes
  • Cold, crisp mornings
  • Pumpkins
  • Soup
  • Boots and jumpers
  • Crunchy leaves
  • Christmas list making
  • The colours
  • Candles in the evening
  • Halloween

Instagram Update: September 2014

Lots of wedding stuff, some extremely fun weekends and some very sunny September days – that’s pretty much how it’s gone over the last four and a bit weeks, and I’m loving that it still feels quite like Summer, but we’re getting the odd flutter of Autumn every now and again. October signals the start of some of my favourite months of the year (hello, Halloween, our birthday month and CHRISTMAS!), so I’m pretty excited to get stuck into it, even if I will be just a little sad to say goodbye to Summer for another year. Here’s how my September looked.
