Don’t you just love those slightly hazy, rather warm autumn days? Today has been just that. Having gotten in to the firm habit of trips to the seaside for dog walks with Fleur over the summer, it turns out it’s been hard to break now it’s slightly colder. Both Rich and I had been craving the salty air and skimming stones in to the sea, so this morning we set off and enjoyed a stroll, stopping only for a cup of tea to warm our hands. I was somewhat tricked by the sun in to thinking I could have a day without tights, but I returned home with blue-tinged legs from the harsh winds! I won’t be making that mistake again, that’s for sure! The rest of the day so far has been spent sorting pretty frocks (the eager eyed amongst you may notice up in the navigation bar that I’m holding a blog sale), so please have a look and give my belongings loving new homes!

Lately, things in my life have been turned on their head somewhat. With our new house, career decisions to be made and many other changes afoot (more on that at a later date), I’ve stumbled in to a very happy place. I’m finding it almost bizarre, as mass change normally finds me stressed. Perhaps a page has turned from that chapter, because I’m content as I ever was. It’s not just the big life things, I’m also happy in myself. So often people spend years and years wanting to change things about themselves, whether it’s their hair or their body shape, and I’ll openly admit I have been one of them. It wasn’t until I read this MYA article on ‘the perfect body’ and found myself chuckling, that I realised I’m completely satisfied and at ease with the way I look. It’s really a rather wonderful place to find yourself in, almost a sense of relief, even.

I think there may be some changes on the horizon for this blog, so that it grows along with me. I hope you’ll all enjoy the new direction that is to come at some point in the future, whenever that may be.

    It’s wonderful to hear that so many things are changing for you right now and that you’re excited about them. I’ve been in a pretty similar place recently, but am finding it hard to look forward to them. Funny enough, I’m usually excited about change, but now I’m actually pretty nervous, haha! Hoping that change goes well for both of us, Emily!
