A whole lotta life stuff…

thanks to our friend Chris for the awesome pic.

Oh hello there, remember me?

All been a bit quiet here recently, eh?

If you follow me on instagram (about the only form of social media I’ve managed to keep up with recently!) then you’ll probably have gathered that I’ve been a bit busy over the last few months.

In short, allllll the life stuff happened. Just since the last blog post we bought our FIRST HOME  (yay! still can’t quite believe it!) together (yes, after 2 years of looking, of course we managed to find somewhere and complete on it 3 months before our wedding!), I went through a WHOLE lot of tests for just over a couple of weeks at the hospital for my dermatitis issues that I’ve been blogging about for the last 2 years or so (again, 2 years build up, all comes to fruition 2 months before the wedding! But, I now have a diagnosis, which is excellent news!), I took on a LARGE new web content contract, and then, 4 weeks ago, after all the build up, WE GOT MARRIED! (Woohoo!)

All good stuff really, but a whole lot of it, and all at once. And for my own sanity, something had to give. That thing, unfortunately, was the regular blogging.

I’ve missed it, and the Birmingham blogging community so very much, but there is only so much that one human can do.

But, post-wedding, I’m finally settling back into life a little, and the time feels right to make my return.

I’m so looking forward to catching up on everything, getting back to some events, and also I’d like to include some more home-styling type posts on the blog to reflect one of the new focusses in my life (I own a home! I can paint the walls! It’s a refreshing and exciting prospect after renting for 4 years!).

In the meantime, I have continued to film vlog footage over the past few months, so you will see some of what I’ve been up to over on my channel – the first ‘catch up vlog’ (from APRIL – eek!!) went up yesterday.

So, this was just a little ‘hello’ post. I hope to see a lot more of you all very soon.

(…and yes, there will be wedding photos!)

    Thank you , me too! I’m glad that my post helped, I’ll be writing a post on my diagnosis soon. Fingers crossed that your patch testing works out 🙂

    Hi Emily, that’s awesome that you got a diagnosis! I’ve had issues with my lips since Jan 2008 and it’s only gotten worse – it seems to be spreading to my face/cheeks as well.. I have one major episode pretty much every year. I just went to an allergist and will undergo patch testing soon. I’ve been trying to figure out how to schedule it, as I work fulltime, and your article on patch testing was super helpful. I look forward to reading your post on your diagnosis! Best of luck 🙂
