Month in Review: May 2022

Month in Review: May 2022

I cannot believe we’re already in the sixth month of 2022. How on earth did THAT happen? What is time? I don’t even know anymore. Some weeks seem to go super slow and others speed by so fast.

June is a very exciting month for our family. We’re packing up and relocating once again. This time we’re moving to Southampton where we hope to settle down for good. It’s an area we’ve been drawn to for a while and we’re really looking forward to the change in scenery.

Change is pretty much the name of the game right now. Not only are we moving but we’re downsizing from a two-storey house to a ground floor flat. I’ve also been putting in a lot of time and energy into living a more intentional, simplified life. This has meant that I’ve been considering my values in life and figuring out what truly matters to me. I’ve also started to curate a year-round capsule wardrobe which is great because my wardrobe seriously needed updating as I’ve been wearing the same clothes for YEARS.

So yeah, it’s a truly exciting time. I’m feeling very positive about everything and looking forward to sharing more of my journey with you all. But for now, here’s my month in review for May 2022.
