When is a better time to look back and reflect upon a year, as your birthday. Tomorrow I turn 28, which I am still counting as mid 20s 😉 and here are some of my moments, big and small from year number 27.
Skipping the seasons :: I managed to fit two summers into this year as I skipped from Autumn in England to Spring in Chile. DIY wedding planning :: We arrived in Chile with just seven weeks to go until we got married, meaning lots of wedding preparation.Finding beauty in the everyday :: Moving to another country definitely taught me to look a little closer and find the beauty in the most ordinary things. Being in new surroundings helps you to do that and gives you new eyes.Getting married :: 26th December 2015 was the best day 🙂Having my family and friends come to Santiago for our wedding :: We were so lucky to have friends and family visit us in Chile from all over the world (England, South Korea, Russia, Japan, Mexico and Ecuador). We got to show them some of Chile and spend Christmas and new year together.Visiting my favourite city again :: Valparaíso, Chile is one of my favourite cities for it’s art, colour and vibrance so living in Santiago means I get to visit often.Honeymooning in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia :: One of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. We had an incredible ten day honeymoon in the most beautiful place.Flat moving :: We moved into our flat in February and love it so, especially the views that I never stop talking about!Mountain gazing :: I never tire of the mountain view here in Santiago, it really is special. And, we get the best view from our balcony too! Sunset seeking :: I’m not used to seeing so many sunsets in London, but have loved seeing the dramatic sky tones here and how they differ every day.Adventuring :: There is so much adventure to be found right on your doorstep, you just have to find it. Lots of our weekends have been about finding adventure close by. That was 27. Now, it’s time for 28 🙂
