Guess what? I wanted to post this on Monday and I didn’t. Then I tried again yesterday. I thought about not posting it at all, but then I thought, screw it, if I want to post about my lovely weekend, in the middle of the week, then I shall. Last weekend was one of the best weekends I’ve had in a long while, so I’m documenting it in a special weekend edition of the happy journal (which I’ve still got commitment issues with). I’ve been feeling a bit down recently but now I feel ready to take on whatever the week brings.
It was our anniversary recently – Joel and I have been together for seven years now! – and had booked in this weekend to spend together. Originally, we were thinking of going adventuring in the Cotswolds but changed our plans at the last minute. I’m so glad we did because it both saved us money and gave way to some really special moments.
I am so excited to say that we are now less than one year to our wedding! Woohoo! In fact, it’s less than 10 months until the big day.
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while so I’m finally jumping on to give an update of where we are now with the planning and how much we have left to do. It feels like forever since Joel got down on one knee on a rainy Sunday in the Peak District and asked me to marry him.
My favourite month of the year is finally here! Hello, October.
I love setting goals out for the month ahead but recently I’ve been lacking. So I’ve gone back to the basics. I’m not reviewing any past goals and this month, I’m setting easy, intentional goals to ease myself back in.
While Summer is my favourite season of all time, because it’s when I’m happiest, I’ve also got a real soft spot for Autumn too. When the busyness of Summer comes to an end, there’s so much to look forward to. As the seasons slowly begin to change, the air gets cooler (I can start wearing scarves again, which are probably my favourite clothing accessories), the colour of the leaves turn from greens to gorgeous oranges and browns, and a favourite seasonal drink makes a return.
