Loving: Beetroot at the moment. I've been eating it savoury and sweet.  My three favourite ways are as follows: 1. Beetroot, Braeburn Apples chopped and a little Feta cheese with a bit of sea salt. 2. Beetroot, Granola, Greek Yoghurt and some agave syrup. 3. Beetroot and cucumber with a small spread of Philly on Whole Wheat seed bread. Do you have any other beetroot ideas? I really want to try some beetroot Ice cream which I saw over at Vanilla and Lace

Reading: Other than the usual blogs, unfortunately with work and everything going on reading has taken a back burner. Although I'm hoping to get a few books on the reading asap. The Paris Wife is currently next on my to read list. Any other recommendations?

Watching: Currently a program about the planets. I'm kind of a nerd like that and am so awe struck by this amazing world. Also, we watched some good movies over the weekend. The girl with the dragon tattoo and warrior. Anyone seen them? WOW! I didn't think I would like TGWDT but it was soo good. I thought Daniel Craig was brilliant, and I loved Rooney Mara.  

Thinking about: How little I take photographs. As demanding as it was and how bored I did get of it I miss the 365 photo a day challenge because I felt I would challenge myself with my camera to get more creative and take more pictures to share. Maybe something of the sort is needed. I need to get to snapping. My heart skips a beat just hearing that click sound. Ah how I love it. 

Surprised by: How reasonably well everything has been going in our favour lately. I don't mean that as in like our lives are horrible. I just mean certain things that we haven't expected to really go our way have worked out or even just random things. For example our electric company sent us a letter and instead of asking for money sent us money because we haven't used as much as we paid for. Then also we basically had money sent to us because we overpaid in taxes or something to that manor. It's just nice little things like that sometimes. 

Making me sad: As some of you may know from my Facebook status the other night, Luna has gone into heat. It's so heart breaking hearing her poor little pur and cry out. It's crazy how it's actually happened and panned out. Has anyone's cat gone through this? Well basically she goes around the house purring and cooing a massive annoying mating call. She is basically in a sexual position ready for a male cat to... well there is no way of saying other than, give it to her. Thankfully she is a house cat and this will not be happening. Thursday she is getting fixed. Unthankfully, seeing as she is an indoor cat it's literally constant 24/7 offing meowing and crying and it's the most f*ing annoying thing. Like I actually want to rip my hair out it's so irritating. This makes me sad because I don't want to be upset with her but doesn't she know that I need my sleep? Doesn't she know that David is like a big bad monster if he doesn't get sleep. I basically think she is letting us know that even though we already knew it, we are in no way shape or form ready for kids. I mean literally a big hats off to all the moms out there. Sheeesh. 

Making me happy: A lot of little things lately. Especially things like waking up to text messages off my mother saying she loves me and misses me. <3

What are YOU currently doing? 

Thanks Danielle for giving me something to blog about.

Will you be my wife? I remember those words coming from my darling husband on that fine February night two years ago. The funny crazy thing is David and I actually only spent a total of 3 weeks together when we started dating before he left to go back to England. I remember thinking I may never see this man again. Then we saw each other for a weekend in New York to celebrate his mother's birthday and I met his mother Pam , his brother Paul and his now wife Gemma. David then came back for two weeks in November and then I went to England for three weeks at Christmas. So add that all together we'd basically only spent 8-10 weeks together before this 4,000 relationship went from dating to engagement. Then I even decided to leave everything I knew just to follow my heart to England. I was done with missing David. I was done with getting used to having someone to cuddle with to only have to say goodbye two weeks later. Mostly I just wanted our lives to start together. Anything that I was doing I wanted David to be apart of it. I didn't want him to miss out on anything nor did I want to miss anything. That's how I just knew. Just like I know now that if I have exciting news, he's the first person I run to. If I've had a bad day it still surprises me how just seeing him makes me feel better inside. We could have waited until we were in our late thirties or whatever to get married, but I've said it and I'll say it again. When you know, you know. Why wait. Granted, I understand that statement can also be taken, when you know, why rush things. In our instance, we didn't want to wait. 

Now as we are finding ourselves in life, I am just so grateful that David and I found each other. I still struggle constantly as I'm sure a lot of twenty somethings are to figure out who they are and what it is in life that is meant for them. I get anxiety quite often about not knowing who I am, or where I belong. Then, I take a moment and realise; I am in such an early stage of life. There are so many years to come to figure out things. The twenties are for figuring out yourself, all the other stuff comes later. Whenever I do feel a bit blue or down, I always look to my side and just smile that no matter where life is taking me; I know David is by my side. He drives me to be the person I want to be. He knows me better than I know myself sometimes. He picks me up when I'm down and I hope I do the same for him. There are a lot of changes coming up in our life and I am just so extremely thankful that we are taking on life together. 

It just blows my mind how love finds you in the strangest places. I once thought that I would never believe in love again. It just didn't seem real, my parents and most my friends parent's were divorced. Most of the relationships I had been in before were not very healthy. I guess that's what they say though it wasn't meant to be; each person we meet in life, each relationship, each heartache, each experience is a learning lesson. Everything I've been through has made me able to appreciate the love that David has to give to me. 

I guess I just wanted to say a big thank you to my husband for always being there and really just putting up with me. I am madly in love with him and I don't thank him enough.

Day wear

It's Friday yall. 
Also it's pay day. 
On top of that it's a 3 day weekend. 
Thank goodness for English Bank Holidays. 

I have a question, does anyone else hoard clothes? 
Like stuff you won't/don't wear anymore or ever, but you can't throw away in case that ONE day comes and  it was the magic item for a perfect outfit? Basically most of my closet is like this. I have a few outfits that I wear constantly but there are so many things I've been meaning to just really get rid of. I was possibly thinking of putting a little section on the blog and put some things on sale? I haven't quite decided. Or I may follow the popular crowd of creating an instagram account of shop my closet. Not that I think anyone actually wants to do this. 

I love this outfit above. If I could wear this everyday I think I would be pretty happy. Maybe switch the color of shirt for each day of the week? Only thing missing ofcourse would be a blazer. God knows I love an effing blazer. 

There is something about a Friday that just makes working really hard doesn't it? 
Clock watching as each minute inches by. 
Once the clock strikes 6 you almost want to jump up and throw all the paper on your desk in the air. 
Or is that just me?
I love my job I do, but who doesn't LOVE the weekends? I guess if you work weekends you probably don't. 

Going out for cocktails and a meal with two of my girlfriends. 
Nothing like kick starting the weekend with a little alcohol induced fun. 

Right. Happy Friday y'all. It's my second favourite F word. 
Have a good one. 
-Aden out

Who doesn't dream of traveling?
I'm keep catching myself daydreaming in spare moments.
