2015 in Review

I actually can't believe we're at the end of another year. 2015 has been full of highs and lows, happiness and sadness. There have been some amazing moments and times I wish I could erase, but at the end of the day, these moments are what make me Me.

I have reconnected with one of my best friends this year. We have known each other since I moved here but we kind of drifted apart for a couple of years. But this year, she's been through a lot of changes and they have brought her back to my life and I couldn't be happier. She's my fellow book worm, junk food/crap tv loving Lady and I'm so glad she's back!

YOLO bus has evolved more and has become a lovely, cosy home for us. There's still work to do (floor and windows mainly) but I love it and the possibilities it has opened up for us. We are far more relaxed and settled now and have much more freedom to spend time doing the things we love.

2015 has also brought me some of the best books I have ever read! It's been such a wonderful experience being a book blogger and I am so thankful for every single book I have been given or recommended this year! I know I haven't blogged or reviewed a lot of them but I have enjoyed so many wonderful reads!

I have a huge TBR pile already for 2016 and I can't wait to get stuck in! Some of the books I'm most excited for in the new year are:

Pretty Is by Maggie Mitchell
Another Love by Amanda Prowse (I've already read this but it's not our until 16 Jan)
The Day of Second Chances by Julie Cohen
The Astonishing Return of Norah Wells by Virginia Macgregor
The Chocolate Lovers Wedding by Carole Matthews

There are loads more, but these will be some of my highlights! I also am setting myself a goal of clearing some of my backlog from the past 2 years too. I have soooo many books I haven't read that I really want to! I will rectify this!

I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve and that 2016 brings you lots of happiness and plenty of good books to read! Thanks for sticking with me! Txx

Freya Braithwaite knows she is lucky. Nineteen years happily married to a man who still excites her, two beautiful teenaged daughters, and her dream career as a health food writer. Her home is filled with love and laughter, with a passion for food at its very core.
