Yesterday over on Instagram I shared our highlights of 2018 in photos. I did the same last year and they are both saved in the highlights section if you want to pop over and look at them.
I thought it was a shame not to share the same over on here, so I’m going to bore you with a lot of photos now! I started this blog to keep memories of my life with the children and our growing family, and when blogging turns into your job it is easy to get distracted from that. This year I want to remember to focus back on why I started this blog and to keep it authentic and real over here. I’ve seen many other bloggers saying the same over the last couple of days, it seems everyone wants to move away from chasing stats and sponsored posts and making more time for self care, relaxation and just writing what makes us happy.
So here is my 2018 highlights…(hover over the pictures for captions!)
