1. WE HAVE A WEDDING VENUE! PHEW – with only seven months to go, that was feeling kind of close. It’s a big, beautiful cowshed on a big, messy old farm, and I’m suddenly VERY excited to wed this fella of mine.
2. The first snowfall of winter came, meaning the first snow in Orla’s memory – though she enjoyed it last winter, she’s since forgotten it happened. We (I) made a snowman, which apparently wasn’t big enough so she kicked it down again. Such a baddie.
3. Sunlight. It’s been so long, I half expected Orla to ask what the yellow glowing day-moon was for.
4. I’ve finally, reluctantly, gone totally caffeine-free. It wasn’t really a choice – for some reason, even a single cup of tea now gives me heart palpitations & feelings of doom, & it just isn’t worth the stress. Decaf coffee is awesome, but surprisingly few places stock decent decafinated tea – does anyone have any recommendations?
5.Me & Luke, adventuring. Just so we’re clear, this project is very tongue-in-cheek, & is maybe taking a slight swipe at our propensity to tell little white life-lies through social media. Plus, I find it really, really funny. ? Stay tuned for occasional updates on our romantic adventures together… ?
A little love
Hurray, The Future Kept are back in my sidebar, and they’re stocking my favourite pot of botanical magic, the green balm! It’s a cleanser, it’s a healing balm, it’s a lip balm – it’s even magic cream for grazed knees & bumped toddler elbows. In case you can’t tell – I love this stuff.
On the off chance you’re not already sick of me, you’ll find a few updated links over on my press page to various projects I’ve been involved in recently, including a feature in the beautiful Koronette magazine, and my latest piece for Standard Issue.
& that’s it! A quiet month over here, which makes a nice change. How’s 2016 treating you so far? Hope you’ve had a great January x
