It has been a while since I shared photos from Cornwall since we got back from Berlin last month we have been super busy with work and the weather hasn’t been too great. On those few elusive sunny days we tried to make the most of them and get outside, so here are a few photos from this last month. Enjoy x
We headed to Plymouth for the day and explored down at Royal William Yard, which is stunning and a lovely place to have lunch/dinner. We landed luckily on a warm day and it was nice to be by the water and enjoy the architecture and history of this old naval dockyard. There are quite a few restaurants, cafes and bars which have outside seating to enjoy the sun and surroundings. It was a 15-minute walk from the centre and well worth a visit if you’re in the area.
The walk was pleasant and I couldn’t help but take photos of all the beautiful, brightly coloured houses on the way. I really want to live in a mint green house, how cute would that be.
This is a different kind of post from me today, I’m taking a day off from beauty products to celebrate my lovely husband, John, the love of my life.
I thought I would share a photo of John & I from each year that we have been together & I am proud to say that 17 years ago this week I met John who quickly become the love of my life. He was just 16 in the first photo back in 2000 and I had just turned 21, how young we look! I just can’t believe how quickly the years have flown by. We have lived through so many major life events at both ends of the emotional spectrum and I have never doubted our relationship or questioned John’s love for me. John is the most selfless, humble and determined man I know and has shown me that through the most unimaginable pain and grief you can still be optimistic and let go of anger.
I feel like the luckiest lady in the world to have such a supportive, understanding and damn right handsome partner. I could tell you so many stories and reasons why I love this man but one of the earliest ones which stands out for me and it isn’t one that is OTT with fancy gifts or involved spending money. So way back in 2002 when we lived in our first, very small flat together in Scotland, we didn’t have a car or a mobile phone, I worked in quite a rural location and there wasn’t any shops or facilities near by. After I had left that morning to go to work John noticed that I had left my lunch at home in the kitchen, he knew I would not be able to get anything else and be really hungry (and grumpy) so he walked 5+ miles each way just to bring me my lunch. All my colleagues couldn’t believe that he walked all that way in the freezing Scottish Winter just to drop off my lunch, which was just a simple can of soup and walk all the way home. What a sweet thing to do & still 15 years later it still makes my heart full of love just thinking about John walking all that way.
Here is to 17 more years of happiness, living adventures and perusing our dreams but mostly to snuggling up on our sofa talking about everything and anything.
