Spring thoughts


Spring has arrived after what felt like a never ending winter, and yes before you say anything I am indeed one of those people who comments on the weather. I mean can you blame a girl? One minute it's sunny, the next it's raining and snow is everywhere all in the space of an hour here in Wales.

Having had so much change happen in recent months, I wanted to focus today's post on the now and coming weeks to share a little update on what you can expect to see on my social medias.

For the first half of the post I'm going to talk about five things I'm thankful for right now, as I feel everyone should be taking time in their day, if only for a few minutes, to reflect.

"It can be so easy to focus on the negative, that positive things can be happening around you without even realising. So take time for yourself, allow yourself to embrace these moments and enjoy life to the fullest."


Five things I'm thankful for this Spring:


1. Decaf green tea
2. The sunshine
3. My kindle
4. The people in my life
5. The newest member of the family Blake

Five things I'm excited for right now:

1. More adventures
2. Weddings and lots of them
3. Ed Sheeran live
4. Late summer evenings in beer gardens
5. Keeping up with my fitness

Spring Thoughts was created with the mindset of getting everyone to take a step back and reflect on the elements in life which make you the happiest. It doesn't matter how small or large it may be, if it makes you smile, you should always find time throughout the week to spend time doing something just for you.

I would love to hear what you're all looking forward to this Spring and what little thing makes your day's complete. Is it that morning coffee? A song you love that comes on the radio each morning?

As always, until next time.

  1. Lucky you! I don't think spring has fully come here in California - we have extremely sunny days only for the rain to come back a few days after. Mmm, I'm eternally grateful for decaf green tea as well. Hope you have a good week ahead of you and that you & the boyfriend have fun adventures on the weekend!

  3. I love this post! I know I don't take enough time to think about the good things in life that are happening. I'm also very guilty about the 1 book a day problem. It's so easy to get caught up in one and 4 hours later you're wondering where the time went.

    1. No way, it's nice to know I'm not the only one who has mastered the art of a book a day. I usually get funny looks when I tell people!

  4. I was thankful for the sun, but the past few days, it's be thunder storns and torrential rain which has definitely made me miss it more than I realised I would.. �� You've got so many things to look forward to over the next few months - I have no weddings this year, so I'm super excited to see all your outfits! ��

  8. Honestly, I prefer winter. But I HATE this whole sunny one day and coats and scarves needed the next thing that we've got going on right now. I'm excited for Spring to properly arrive so I at least know what I'm doing with my wardrobe! x

    1. So true, it can be so frustrating trying to figure out if you go full on wooly jumpers or just embrace the cold until the sun hits in the afternoon!
