So I turned twenty-three last week! I mentioned in my August Goals that my birthday was approaching but I wasn’t sure of any birthday plans. However, my husband had it all planned out and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the day. We actually spent last week in Toronto with family, and both of our birthdays fell right in the middle of the week. We took Thursday out to visit Yorkdale, and had a wonderful day perusing the shops along with a gorgeous lunch at Laduree. I had such a lot of fun picking out different macaroons and enjoying the gorgeous pink decor! Like last year, I wanted to create a post reflecting on the past twelve months, and share some of the highlights with you in this post. I’ve chosen four of my most favourite moments, and here they are:
The road trip.
I loved last September when we drove across Canada, stopping through lots of big cities and enjoying the best views. Some of my favourite memories will be driving through the mountains and eating dinners at some beautiful restaurants – every night was date night!
Moving into our new house.
It’s always exciting moving house but this one was particularly special. I’ve loved spending the past year decorating, and having a fresh house to decorate is one of the best feelings in the world. It’s the perfect sized house for us, with lots of room and a sweet little garden. There’s even a grape plant growing up our fence which looks absolutely adorable!
Celebrating our one-year anniversary.
Although it was spent apart because my husband works in the military and was away on a tasking, it was special nevertheless. We celebrated the old fashioned way – a fancy dinner and a good old movie, and I loved every minute of it.
Establishing new blogging relationships.
Whether it was through meeting other bloggers or creating more connections with brands that I love, this year has been huge for my blog. I’m really excited to build on the blogging relationships that have developed over the past year, and create many more in the year to come. Overall, I’m so happy with the direction that my blog is taking, and it’s so satisfying to see how much my content has grown and improved over the past few years.
I hope you’re all having a wonderful August!
