I have been nearly mute on social media over the last few months, and for an excellent, exciting reason. At the end of summer Dave and I were offered the chance to emigrate to Canada. We had time to think things over, do our research and decided that this was something we really wanted to do. We knew living in Italy was not part of our long term plan, nor were we ready to rush back to the UK without good reason.
So over the last few months we’ve been busy filling out visa forms, eliminating as much ‘stuff’ from our lives as we possibly could before the move and saying our emotional goodbyes to family and friends in both Italy and Scotland.
So blogging and Youtube have had to take a backseat. Since the summer we have been living the quiet life. I haven’t bought an item of clothing since the summer, and only bought make up essentials when necessary. It would have been silly while we were donating and giving away so much to add more to the equation. Vlogging came to an end as we spent a lot of our days at home, trying to save money and keep a low profile until Dave could finally hand his notice in at work. It was HARD to keep something this big a secret for so long!
So I may be the worst blogger at the moment with my lack of content and new shiny things, but I’m actually okay with that for now! I have a wonderful life and am so excited to see where this next chapter of our lives leads us. I have the opportunity to start a new career, new friendship groups and even a whole new wardrobe!
So with all this change I’m really going to push myself to commit a lot more to blogging. It’s a fantastic hobby for me and it allows everyone back home to catch a glimpse into our lives, before they come to visit anyway!
