2015 | A Year in Review

This year has been pretty full of transitions. It's been 18months since I finished university and my life has had such a fluid structure. In 2015 I've lived in three different homes, moved to London, interned, applied for ten thousand jobs, narrowed down the things that I truly feel passionate and excited about and have a plan in motion to make that my day job. Got married!! My husband graduated university. I've worked as a waitress for 15 months at 2 different companies, and 3 different branches due to all the moving. Starting painting again and starting vlogging on youtube!!! I've created so many plans for ways to continue moving toward and create a life for both myself and my husband. While we may be broke and living in one little extortionate room in a London hostel it's been an incredible year and it's only going to get better.
