Well, it’s safe to say I’ve been suffering with a little writer’s block over the last couple of months of 2018. I guess, to be fair to myself, it’s more a case of the madness of the Christmas lead up mixed with a big focus over on my YouTube channel that’s really taken its toll on my blog writing. My blog will always have a special place in my heart, it was born while I was pregnant with my eldest son, almost 6 years ago! I will always write here because it’s wonderful to have a corner of the internet to call my own, to share our adventures and a place to show my photos, but I might start to share less word-heavy posts, just so I can keep up with it and share with you some of my favourite things that have happened without putting pressure on myself to spend hours researching and writing.
So, with that in mind I thought I would dedicate tonight’s post to sharing some of my favourite things of 2018, I absolutely love looking back at our photos and I love having this platform as a place to do so.
