Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015!

The end of 2014 is iminent and I am sat cuddling my little squishy girl thinking about the year that's about to pass and also the year that's due to jump on us!

2014 has been the most exciting year to date, for the obvious reason that we introduced Daisy to our world! And that would take some beating. I always used to say I wouldn't have children, until it seemed to be the next thing to do in life and I'm so glad my mind set changed. Life will never be the same again, it can only keep getting better! 

That's not to say that 2014 has not been challenging at times for various reasons; pregnancy, sickness, labour (eeek!), hospital appointments, getting used to having a little someone rely on you, different sleep patterns, looking at work options, new jobs, friends  etc etc. But it all works out in the end for the best, everything happens for a reason. Even the little things. Sounds a bit heavy and cryptic but I'm a firm believer. 

I'm already seeing the hundreds of statuses and tweets about fresh starts, new me, this is my year, blah blah blah! I'm happy being me so I won't be saying any of those things, I'm not taking anything away from those that are saying it though. If it's the motivation they need then that's great! 

But for me I always think new year is just a new day, you can work on changes any day and why wait until the year changes? That's not to say I don't want to start the year healthier, fitter and happy but that's nothing dramatic and not a resolution. I'm already happy and healthy, fit- maybe not that one!! I just feel it's a good time to kick start these things after a heavy, fattening Christmas time. 

What I generally mean is people put too much pressure on themselves, new year new me? You are the same you, just look at it differently.

Back to the blog; My little blog has made some steps forward this second half of the year and there's more to come. We've been lucky to have some great opportunities from some fabulous brands and other bloggers, fingers crossed we continue to grow in 2015. 

So I'm off to enjoy the last few days of the holiday and spend more time with my family and friends :)

Have a good one and happy new year!

Lots of love,
Hayley xxx
