Twenty Eighteen, where do I even start to review one of the most important years of my life?!
Last year started with me being extremely headstrong, something that is a fairly new trait to me! I made the decision that I wanted to move to London, and I wanted to do it as soon as possible. I had a whirlwind month of interviews, flat viewings & organising my life ready for the big move in February!
I’m not going to blabber on for a lifetime, but I can’t even put into words how much 2018 meant to me. When midnight rolled past and I welcomed the New Year in with one of my newest friends (still a bit surreal making these strong friendships in such a short space of time) I cried. Not because I was upset, or scared, or even from the alcohol(!), but because I was overwhelmed with everything 2018 had brought me and just how grateful I was for it.
Moving to London was the biggest and bravest decision I have ever made, and such a risk. I knew 1 person there, had never lived in a city and didn’t really have anything to fall back on. I was making a huge leap of faith in hopes that it would make me a little happier. Looking back, I can honestly say that moving to London was by far the best decision I have ever made. Not only have I been pushed way out of my comfort zone, I have strengthened my friendships enormously (both with my southern and northern friends!), made new friends and grown so much as a person.
2018 was filled with so many happy memories. I spent a huge amount of time with my best friends, watched my honorary nephew grow up (hearing him sing ‘the Hannah song’ melts my heart), exploring an amazing city that has more to offer than I ever thought and spending time on me. Every aspect of the last year was so important and has helped me become the person I am now, and for that I am so so thankful.
It was hard to choose pictures for this post, because I have taken so many, but below are some of my favourites (theres still so many, sorry!). Enjoy!
