Hey there! Good evening. It has been a while since I have written a blog post on my website and I wanted to change that. I'm going to be honest, it was tough thinking of content to post on a weekly basis and I think that's what contributed to me stopping last Spring. Since then a lot has happened so I wanted to write a little 2019 summary post and let you know what is happening in my life. I have reflected on the past year and having been reminded of just how much I did in 2019 by my Photos app on my iPhone, I was blown away!
I couldn't recommend podcasts enough at the moment. They are the perfect break from everyday life and a way to escape and make time for yourself within busy schedules. There are so many available for free to listen to and I have learnt so much so far this year! I have popped five podcasts in this blog entry that I would recommend highly and a little summary about each.
Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus! (yn Cymraeg/in Welsh). I was gong to put both versions Welsh and English in the title but that would have been a bit long! 1st March is 'the feast day of Saint David', the patron saint of Wales. The date we celebrate St David's Day is actually the day that he died back in 589 AD. I've done a bit of research as I've not studied it since school!
I visited Richmond in Virginia, USA over the Xmas and New Years break. I was there visiting my friends Adam and Michael and we visited plenty of restaurants and cafés. I wanted to post about this in a separate blog entry as there were so many meals I wanted to speak about. If you want to see what I got up to whilst there you can read my last blog post about my trip here.
I can't believe how quickly the time has flown! Bailey is our golden Labrador puppy and he was born in August. He turned six months old on Monday this week and I wanted to post a blog entry with some newer photos and to show how much he has grown! Since my last post about him, 'Meet Bailey' he has lost all of his puppy teeth and has grown significantly. He now weighs over 25kgs and we have a feeling he's going to be a very tall Labrador from the amount he has already grown and the size of his paws!
If you've been following my website and blog for a while you'll know that I am really interested in tiny homes and living as much of a minimalist lifestyle as possible. I have a playlist on my YouTube channel where I save my favourite tiny home video tours and to be totally honest the only feed I am interested in now is Bryce's from Living Big in a Tiny House. Bryce is from New Zealand and he travels around the world visiting as many tiny homes as possible. His videos are so well produced and the homes are breathtaking! Check out my last post about tiny home inspiration.
I visited Virginia (and travelled to West Virginia too when there) for Xmas and New Years 2018-2019. I have decided to split this post into two sections because there was so much to talk about vegan food-wise that I'll speak about those another week. This post consists of all the touristy things, enjoy!
