What a year 2017 has been! It's been a year of so many changes for me; including changing my job, car and moving into a rented house with Dan. One of the main things I've learnt this year is that happiness is such a valuable thing, and I'm finishing the year feeling truly happy and content. I've decided to do a little round up of my year - with links to my month in numbers posts which I've enjoyed writing this year.

January was quite possibly the busiest month of the year. Not only did I start my new job, but two days before I moved into a little one bed house with Dan. An exciting, but exhausting, way to start 2017.

Nothing major happened in February, but we did get the chance to catch up with friends from uni which was lovely.

March is a busy month for family birthdays - especially in 2017 as my sister turned 21 and my grandma turned 80! We had parties to attend, and I took my sister to London for a day of birthday fun.

In April, I visited Poland for the first time ever with a weekend break in Warsaw. We spent time with my grandparents, and I upgraded my car to a mini one which I love, and has made me a much more confident driver.

May was a busy travel month. Dan and I headed to Valencia for a couple of days, and later that same week I jetted off to Stockholm with my friend Mary.

I'll admit that June was spent invested in Love Island, but I didn't put all of my eggs in one basket - and headed to Canterbury for a hen do as well. 

I headed to the Battle Proms at Hatfield House with my work colleagues, and spent a lot of time watching Jane the Virgin, which is hilarious.

In August, I visited two new countries (Luxembourg with my mum, and Czechia with my Dad) and I also read eight books - reading in the summer is one of my favourite things.

Dan and I headed away to Centre Parcs for a week of R and R. I'm convinced that we need to go on a staycation yearly, because it was so relaxing. I'm eyeing up Cornwall for 2018 as I've never been!

My baby sister graduated with a first class degree (I'm so proud!), I turned 24 and also saw Zara Larsson with my best friends. What a month! October is always a family filled month, and I love it.

November saw my Dad ordained as a Baptist minister. I'm so proud of what he's achieved, and celebrating with the family (and the 120 people who turned up because my dad is brilliant) was a highlight. 

December 2017

A busy, but lovely and festive month. We had Christmas for the first time together alone, and spent a lot of time with friends and family. A lovely way to round off 2017!

Here's hoping for as good a year in 2018! I'm looking forward to what the new year will bring, and hope to continue with my month in numbers. Wishing you all health, wealth and happiness for the coming year!

What did you get up to in 2017?
