If We Were Having Coffee #8

The last coffee catch up for the year!! Let’s get into it! I’m sure many of us are busy catching up with friends and family, so we’ll make this quick!

I’m having a milkshake again. It’s a Christmas Spice one from Sweet Bakery and Cakery. Tastes like toffee and gingerbread!

If we were having coffee, I’d talk about how much fun this year’s festive season has been. It’s my first year celebrating Christmas with my newfound blogging community, and it’s made me much more excited than I normally would be. Don’t get me wrong, I’m always feeling extra festive this month for multiple reasons, but being a part of this blogging world has me feeling extra festive by about 1000% 😀

If we were having coffee, I’d also get all reflective talking about how amazing 2017 was. I had many milestones this year, both in life and in my blog. I started my blog in March with a vague idea of using it to save memories of my earlier travels, and now it’s become an online journal full of thoughts, memories, ideas, and basically a happy space I can call my own on the internet. I’ve also grown to over 2000 followers which is just insane. In terms of life, I got married, went on a honeymoon, bought a house, and celebrated 6 years of being with Rory!

If we were having coffee, I’d talk about the direction I would like to take my blog next year. I’m trying to think of getting a little more stability in my blog. I’d still like to post daily though. I talk about a huge number of things, but I’d like to get some sort of schedule going. Having certain days to talk about certain things. It’s just a brainstorm at the moment, but it does sound appealing to me.

If we were having coffee, I’d ask how your holidays are going, and what you’ve been getting up to. Then I’d let you get back to spending your day however you are, and wish you an amazing holiday season!

That’s all I wanted to share in this coffee catch up!
