Sweet Monday 2013

Sweet Monday blog

What a year 2013 has been! As I'm sure all of you are aware by now in November 2012 a special person left home to embark on an adventure of a lifetime, leaving me a little lonely to say the least. However through many friends, and a few very dear blogger friends I picked myself up and have had one of the best years of my life.
Last year I moved out with my best friend into a little flat in Cheltenham. We spent 11 months there and had some really special times :) Living with her was certainly the highlight of my year, and I'm going to miss her like crazy when I go away next week.

I began 2013 attending lots of blogger events and days out with many lovely people! Katy, Steph and I saw each other regularly and with it we became besties :D I have these two to thank for spurring me on this year and listening to me talk about Stewie.
In April I flew to Sydney to visit him and spend two beautiful weeks in paradise. I came back, got a new tattoo from a good friend of mine and embarked on a summer full of fun!

Beach days were spent here in the UK when it was blistering hot and I enjoyed a second holiday in Greece where my oldest friend got married :) I then attended a couple of festivals, day trips to London with work, arranged a second AX Paris event, said goodbye to my dear colleague Emily and began preparing for my own traveling adventure!

The last month or so has been spent seeing as many beautiful faces as I possibly can before I go. And then the week before Christmas saw Stew come home which was amazing after having spent seven and a half months apart. I spent Christmas at home with my parents and seeing family which was perfect :) And now I leave in just 6 days!! I can't believe how quickly 2013 has flown past, how many amazing opportunities I had through working at etailPR, how many weddings of friends I've attended, and how many holidays/mini breaks I've enjoyed.
2013 really has been a whirlwind and I'm now sooo incredibly excited to start 2014. Stew and I leave Heathrow next Wednesday, heading to Dehli and then Melbourne. I promise I will try to keep my blog as updated as I can. Until we're settled somewhere with internet I have a few lovely bloggers to stand in and keep you entertained :)
Thank you so much for sticking by my blog, I hope you all still enjoy it as much as ever. Sweet Monday will be 4 years old in July!! Crazy!
