A few of my favourite things #86

How flippin' lovely has it been the last few days? I've been so grateful for the opportunity to take Jenson on a few adventures while we've been off work and nursery.

Thoughts on feeling the fear and writing anyway

At the start of the year I set myself a few goals, some personal, some professional. I wanted to feel creative and challenged. I wanted to start making more time for myself.
