It’s a New Year

If you’d have shown me a picture of my life today, this time last year; I would never have believed you.

2017 was a year of incredible things including:

Buying ourselves our dream cars.

Getting married after 9 years together.

Finding out I was pregnant, finding out it was a girl and then in September; giving birth to our daughter Freya Penelope Ella Moore.

Being chosen as an Origins Ambassador for the York store.

Our families always joke that we never do things far apart and always seem to have a lot going on at once. In 2016 we got engaged, went on holiday, bought our first home and both got promotions to name a few.

So when it comes to 2018, we are both hoping it will be a little calmer than the previous couple of years have been. Here are a few of the things we are looking forward to.

I will be continuing as an Origins Ambassador and arranging a few more events with the York store so keep your eyes peeled as there is one coming in February.

Our first family holiday abroad and hopefully a UK break as well.

A family wedding in 4 weeks time.

Freya’s first birthday in September! (she’s only just over 3 months so we have a while to go thankfully)

I don’t know what else this year has in store for us other than my maternity leave ending later in the year and returning to work. I hope there are surprises and lots of laughter as we watch our little one turn into a toddler. When it comes to myself, I intend to shift 5-7 lbs of weight that I still haven’t managed to get rid of since having Freya. I also plan on using some Christmas money to reinvent my style a little as I feel like I’ve outgrown my old wardrobe and without a doubt have outgrown my skinny jeans.

Here’s to a wonderful year full of health and happiness.

  1. Wow, your previous years have been hectic, but maybe, that’s just you guys? And sadly, once you hit one, having a child doesn’t make things any less hectic! – But oh so rewarding! Literally, the time with children flies. It’s crazy to think I’ll be doing it all again come May!
    I salute you for losing all your baby weight so quickly! I don’t think I ever full regained my pre-baby body and here i go again!
    Pre-pregnancy definitely have a ‘new me’ effect on you.. I had this, where I had my hair chopped into a bob and hated it after But I currently cannot wait to be pregnant free as am craving a new style. I look forward to reading and seeing what you do. 🙂
    All the best.


    1. Hmm I’m not confident I’ll lose the last of the baby weight, but if my tummy tones a little bit more, I’ll be happy. haha. I can’t wait for your baby updates now. I’m a different person now I’m a mum, baby mad in the head I think. xx
