Well this is novel! It feels like a lifetime ago since I sat down and had a proper catch-up with you. How have you been keeping? I’ve been super busy this past month; lets grab a cuppa and I’ll fill you in on whats been happening on my end.
You may have noticed that I’ve been MIA for just over a month on all of my social media accounts. Yes, that does mean that an entire calendar month has passed without me even glancing over my instagram feed *gasp*. Believe me; its not for lack of want. I’ve been dying to get back on my blog to carry on producing badass posts for you lovely bunch, but my part-time job as an adult has taken up the majority of my time right now. As well as adulting, I’ve been up to some pretty exciting things this month.
After years of dating, me and my partner finally took the plunge and moved in together. It’s been a long time coming and something that we’ve been wishing and saving for for years. So needless to say, we’re over the moon that we’ve finally been able to make our little dream a reality. It’s been a whirlwind of emotions to say the least, but its all been worth it to watch out little home grow day by day. It’s definitely still a work in progress, like right now, I’m writing this while waiting for our new sofa to be delivered (yes, we’ve had nothing to sit on but the floor for the past month!).
The whole process, as joyful and exciting as it’s been, has also been terribly time-consuming. As well as literally not having any broadband in the new house, I’ve been too mentally and physically absorbed with packing, unpacking, and decorating the new house to even think about drafting up a post for A Sprig of Holly. And it makes me sad; its like I’ve abandoned my baby! But not to worry, I’m back now after settling in a little into the new house and it feels great.
Lincoln and London
As well as living in IKEA and Dunelm Mill while preparing for the new house, I’ve also done a bit of travelling with some of my favourite people. I visited Lincoln for a day (which is STUNNING btw) and London for a few nights with 3 of my friends. We ate, we drank, we shopped; what more could I have needed? It was nice taking a much-needed break away from all of the palava of moving and spending it with the people who make me feel almost normal (questionable, maybe?).
New Blog Layout!
The unintentional social media detox this month has had me thinking about what direction I want my blog and my brand to be moving in. After lots of thought and deliberation, I’ve completely revamped my website and I’m completely IN LOVE with it. Very much like my current living situation, it is definitely a work in progress. But right now, I’m so happy with how everything is looking and I’m feeling way more inspired and motivated (which is the feeling I’ve been craving all month).
Its so good to be back! I hope you’ve enjoyed this little catch-up, hopefully you wont have to wait too long to hear form me again! In the meantime, check out my social media links to keep up to date with what I’ve been up to. You can find them in the bar above this post.
With Love Always,
