2020 "Resolutions" & Plans

This year has been… challenging, to say the least. SO! I’d really like to try to set myself up for even just a marginally better year in 2020

Trip to Italy

After 5 years, we finally got to visit Italy again. I think we were both in need of just getting away for a little while and this did the trick! Already can’t wait for our next trip back.

It has beautiful bay windows and original fireplaces, I’m now dreaming of decorating it with all of our things and cycling to work on the seafront. Zissou is going to love theContinue reading “A Warm Weekend Through My Phone”

Early May

In the first few weeks of May I’ve snoozed on pebbled beaches, had days out with friends, exercised more, somehow managed to avoid getting sunburn, (or a tan for that matter) and Illustrating little things I wouldn’t normally for my new job (!!!) Its nice to be branching out and challenging myself
