Back in February I got engaged in Brighton and honestly it still feels like it was yesterday. We haven't made a huge dent in our wedding planning, but we both knew we wanted to take our time and get it right because of course we're only going to be do it once!
I really learnt a lot about friendship this year because I pushed myself to make more friends with people I felt like I'd get along with just like my New Year goals. This time last year I would have been quite standoffish about the prospect of making new friends as I always felt like nobody would like me, but here we are and honestly it's so much better than I thought. It was a task to push myself and there's been some hiccups along the way, but it's definitely inspired me to make more friends next year too.
As for my career, I sometimes forget I'm running multiple businesses and this all got a bit more real in my 21st year. I'm so proud of how far I've come in the last twelve months, I've really tackled the work/life balance that I've always struggled with, but I'm doing better than ever nevertheless - I hope that continues (crosses fingers!).
We've been to so many places over the past 12 months on holiday and it was lovely to explore more of the UK too. We did a lot of our bucket list which felt very productive and made the Summer feel like it went on forever.
What have I been up to then? Well on Thursday I went out with a friend for a surprise and it ended up being to a comedy night with cocktails and food too! It was super funny and I couldn't believe a friend treated me like that for an evening! On Friday, Tom and I spent the day together going to a pumpkin patch, out for dinner and to a jazz and gin festival. It was a lovely day and it was so nice to spend some quality time with Tom and he well and truly treated me. On Saturday, I extended my birthday even more and went 'out out' with friends for lots of drinks and giggles too. It's back to normal today, but it's made me want to relive it all again.
