Well, what a year 2018 has been. There has been so many highs this year and not really many lows which does really excite me for 2019. Really hoping its just as good.
The year did start off pretty slow. I think the most exciting thing was getting a new sofa. SO exciting! But then along came April and it was all go from there. My sister and I went to see Harry Styles in the O2 in London and it was honestly one of the best shows ever. He’s such a good performer and is really funny.
The next day, Dave and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary and he only went and bloody PROPOSED!!! I had mentioned engagement to him a few months before and even showed him the ring I wanted. But I wasn’t expecting it at all. Obviously I was over the moon and said yes.
So, to celebrate us getting engaged we got a puppy. He’s so cute. A little menace now but we love him very much. He’s a golden doodle called Rodney and you can read all about him here.
Then on a whim, we went into TUI and booked our wedding. We really really liked the idea of getting married abroad. We loved Cyprus after going to my best friends wedding in 2017 so we booked Cyprus. It’s also SO much cheaper than getting married in the UK. We booked it for June 2019 which we’re now having to postpone but we’ll get to that in a bit.
After a long, hot, relaxing summer with the puppy and amazing sunshine, along came October and along came a little surprise. After probably 2 years of trying, we found out that I’m pregnant! I literally couldn’t believe it was finally happening. We’re expecting our little one in June (hence why we’re having to postpone our wedding now) and I couldn’t be more excited. If you want to know how I got on for the first 12 weeks then you can read my blog post here.
The rest of the year then has been pretty chilled. We had a lovely relaxing Christmas together (just me, Dave and the dog). Finally a Christmas where Dave wasn’t working. Then I spent NYE with a couple of friends, a kebab and some films.
This year has honestly been one of the best. Especially since becoming an adult and taking on responsibilities. I am so excited for what 2019 has to bring for us. I’m really hoping its an amazing year for you too.
