Two Thousand and Seventeen: Oh What a Year!


I can't quite believe that as I'm writing this we're already half way through the first month of 2018!? Time seems to go quicker every single year which quite frankly terrifies me. I love the beginning of a new year for so many reasons but I also love reflecting on the last twelve months to see what I've achieved, what I've completely and utterly failed at and also to look back at the memories I've made. I wanted to write a quick post where I can list (because I love a good list) my highlights, new discoveries and of course my favourite memories from 2017 so that I can look back on them! I'll also include a little photo diary at the end of this post because I have so many photos from last year which really make me smile. So, here I go!

Favourite moments from 2017 in a little photo diary:

Thank you so much to everyone who has made 2017 such a special year! And thank you to everyone who has stuck with me, I feel so overwhelmed and appreciative. Like I said I wanted to write a little something just so I could look back and see what my highlights were this year, especially since it's often hard to remember the good moments when clouded with the bad.

I hope you've all had a magical Christmas and I hope the New Year is full of happiness for you.

Lots of Love,
Meg X
