This week Tyrone and I finally booked our summer holiday!

We are going on a Baltic Cruise!

We’ll be going to Norway (Oslo), Sweden (Stockholm and Gothenburg), Finland (Helsinki), Russia (St Petersburg), Estonia (Tallinn), Gemany (possibly going on an excursion to Berlin) and Denmark (Copenhagen). I’m so excited I haven’t stopped smiling since I booked it!

Well, wasn’t June a lovely month! This sunshine honestly puts me in the best of moods!

I felt like summer last year was a complete right off. I spent the hottest days of the year in Ikea or painting my living room, but this year I’ve made the most of every sunny day we’ve had.

Mid-year check-in

At the beginning of the year I decided to choose a guiding word for 2018 rather than setting myself more specific goals. After having such a horrible time in 2017 when I didn’t feel like myself and I rarely ever felt happy, I put my foot down and decided that I was no longer going to feel that way. The word I chose was “Happiness”.

We’re now 6 months into the year, which is kind of hard to believe, and today I wanted to have a bit of a check-in session. I want to talk about what’s being going well, what hasn’t been going quite so well, and how I plan to move forward going into the next 6 months of 2018.
