I've no doubt your blog readers will be full of these types of posts, but none the less I wanted to share my memories of TwentyFifteen to bring in 2016 with more love and happiness than ever before.
I got my hair cut off, which looking back on I totally love- maybe this needs to happen again? We saw in the New Year at Bohdi's Beach Hut, a dream cottage in Cornwall. Visited London twice for Birthday celebrations and a trip up the Shard.
This was a hard and dark month for us, having a re-homed a rescue dog, that very sadly didn't work out. She's still very much in our hearts, and we're so pleased to hear she has a lovely family that she was really meant to be with. We did however take gorgeous Ava to the seaside, and visited Woolacombe with our friends (and Sev of course!)
March was a fairly quiet one for us, however I did "model" for Simply Be in their jeans campaign. Something I'd never done before and I got to meet some gorgeous girls, it was such a fun day and experience. Apart from this we explored out county a little more, visiting Lacock and Bradford on Avon for breakfasts, teas and dog walks.
We visited Devon in April, and stayed at a posh dog friendly hotel. We love our little trips away, and going to the seaside is my favourite thing to do. I also finally did my first cosplay, as Town Belle (from Beauty and The Beast) It was lots of fun and I think the photos came out perfectly.
May was the month of my Best Friends Hen Weekend, followed by 3 amazing weddings. It was a wonderful, yet tiring month of Prosecco filled happiness and love for these gorgeous couples. My close friend Emily married Mike, My Best Friend Sian married Tom and I got to support them both by being Bridesmaid, and Sam's friend Liam married April.
We visited our friends in Poole, for a Weekend of sunshine and too much food and drink. I got to go and see the Cath Kidston beach huts and Sev had many long dog walk. I also filmed "A Day in The Life of a Dog" which I loved and am far too pleased with. As well as this we visited the Cotswold and got to stay in another gorgeous dog friendly place.
On the 4th of July my nephew was born, something that has changed the last 6 months of my life, and probably forever more. He is the cutest little guy, and I'm so proud of my sister for being the best Mummy to him.
We visited Dorset again and got to adventure Mudeford and Hengistbury Head. The sun was shining and we got to see the gorgeous beach huts, as well as matching Sev, I was in my element of a good time.
This month I also slowly started Stephanie Dreams Photography, and I'm so glad I did. Although I've had a slow start, it's still been steady and I hope eventually I can be doing something I truly love.
In August we hired out a canal boat for the day and Myself, Sam, Mum, Dad, Bex, Josh, Jax and Sev all took a trip down the Kennet and Avon. It was a lovely family day out and was the perk of a quiet month. We hosted a little Summer BBQ, where I made the best Prosecco cocktail ever.
We managed a cheap sunshine holiday to Majorca for a few days. What started a little rocky turned into a wonderful holiday with my wonderful Husband. We drank cocktails, laid in the sun and relaxed a whole bunch.
Autumn started to show it's beautiful face too and my outfits started to change with it.
Yay! We made it to one whole year of marriage. We (of course) celebrated by visiting Donald at Disneyland Paris. We had such a fun trip and it's gotten us so excited for our DLP holiday with our friends in September 2016.
Severus also turned two years old, so we of course celebrated in the best way we knew how, with cake and a Puppy Party!
I may have visited Disneyland Paris again...okay, I totally did! This time it was a little different and I went with Ellie and Chelsea for a Halloween trip. I dressed (sort of) as Snow White and we had a great few days meeting Princesses and being in that magical world.
The time of festive cheer! We (yet again) visited our friends in Poole and celebrated Christmas early with a Mini Christmas day and festive afternoon tea. Christmas was a whirlwind of family and food, topped off with a New Year in Devon with friends.
I've also played around with different videos and have been vlogging more, follow my Youtube journey here.
Thanks to you all who have read, commented and supported Stephanie Dreams in 2015....now lets get 2016 under way ♥
