I love You, 2016

I'm writing this post on my birthday, after a wonderful day celebrating with family. There are more celebrations planned for tomorrow and the coming weekend. Throughout the last week and today, I've been painfully aware it's been nearly two months since my last blog post. It was never my intention to take a hiatus, let alone one that long. The truth is 2016 threw me a curve ball and I had to take it.

Back in early May, in A Move in the Right Direction, I blogged about moving home. What I didn't expect when I moved was it would introduce me to a man I can only describe as my soulmate. I've always hated the term soulmate, because I didn't really understand what it meant. I do now. It's early days, but I think I've found The One.

I've spent the last few weeks enjoying and focusing all of my attention on him, us, my new house, and the usual every day stuff that life entails. In all of that, he's regularly reminded me about not losing who I was before we met - the reader and writer. So, I owe it to him to get writing again. I know nothing would make him happier. My first step was writing this post. My second is sharing my favourite photo from today just because I can.

Pebbles approves of the Labyrinth T-Shirt my bestie, 
Rachel Morris, gave me.

P.s. Rachel has a Go Fund Me campaign to help her to do the thing she loves most in the world, walking her dogs. Please drop by and help to spread the word anyway you can.


  1. That's great you've found someone special. If he's encouraging you to write, do it.

  2. Happy birthday Ellie, and thank you for taking the time out from an exciting Real Life to share your wonderful news.

  3. Happy Birthday! Someone who encourages you to be you is a keeper.

  4. Happy birthday! Pebbles is a adorable.

  5. Nice to hear your good news and see you back blogging.

  6. A good sign he's The One when he's reminding you to do things that make you happy. :)

  7. Really pleased that you like your T-shirt. I was helped a little by your facebook post in early June LOL!

    So glad that you are happy xxx
