Summer 2017 Roundup

Brighton, North Laines - A Place I Visited in Summer 2017

Woah. Hello, September. I don’t know about you, but I am getting so excited for Autumn because I’ve just had the busiest Summer of my life, and I’m looking forward to life slowing down a little.

I really want to start using my blog like a journal and continue to share things that make me happy. One of the ways I’m going to do that is a roundup after each season to document what I did and the places I went, etc.

British Summertime technically runs from 21st June until the 22nd September 2017, however, my post starts from the beginning of June and ends at the end of August.
