The last time I posted was the 27th December 2013. Just over 4 months ago. So, I think I owe you all an explanation of where I disappeared off to!
Two days after that post was my wedding day! The most amazing day! I have been writing my wedding post and hopefully will have it up very very soon. I'm finding it difficult not to go on and on about every little detail of the day. It was wonderful and I can't wait to share it with you all!
We then went off on our little honeymoon and I decided I wanted a month off from blogging. Last year was crazy, what with the wedding planning. I wanted a month of calm to just enjoy being The Gowers and dedicate every spare moment completely to my little family without any distractions. I also felt like all of my blogging last year was a little half hearted. With so much else going on, my posts were always rushed and I had fallen out of love with it a bit. This year I wanted to dedicate time and effort into making my blog the little corner of the internet I want it to be and enjoy it again. So my big plan was to make a fresh blogging start at the beginning on February, starting with a post about the wedding.
However, February arrived and with it, so did some news. We discovered I was pregnant! We had thought perhaps after we are married it would be a nice time to start trying for baby number two. However, we did not expect it to happen quite so quickly!! We are completely over the moon and cannot wait for October when we officially become a family of four! So February became a month of excitement and attempting to get through each day of going to work and coming home to a very active Lily while battling morning sickness and exhaustion. Blogging was the last thing on my mind!
March came and our little Lily Belle turned two. Two! How did that happen?! I want to make her a proper little two year update. She is changing fast at the moment, growing so much, saying so much, learning so much and has such a huge personality for such a little lady! So in March, not only did I still have the struggles of early pregnancy to contend with, plus a two year olds birthday to plan, but the opportunity arose for us to move somewhere bigger, better and lovelier, so we took it! Life got even more hectic and again, blogging wasn't high on my list of priorities!
So in April, we moved house! Our old house was a small terraced place with the smallest rooms you've ever seen, the steepest stairs (not ideal for having a toddler) and a bathroom that was quite literally rotting away and needed rebuilding. I have spent the last month decorating and filling our new much more modern apartment with much more space, no scary stairs and a lovely balcony for Ronnie the Rabbit!
So here we are, with May almost upon us and I'm back with a new marriage, pregnancy and home, and finally feel ready to put my heart and soul into blogging again! It feels so good to be back.
