TAKING STOCK | APRIL 2017

Another month of 2017 is over and I am, for the first time in years, really looking forward to summer approaching. The next few months are going to be super busy, probably a little bit stressful but definitely very exciting! By the summer, Leaf Lane Studio, the business that I have been dreaming about for years, will be up and running and I will be a self-employed girlie! It seems as if it is still not really happening, yet the number of hours I have spent sat at this desk, prove that I am working towards bringing my dreams into fruition. April has been a big month, and so much has happened, yet I can barely remember it as time is zooming by so quickly. Thank heavens I keep notes in my Bullet Journal or I'd be totally lost!

Let's get onto the best bits of the month:

m a k i n g :: lots and lots of strawberry protein smoothies (so good!).

c o o k i n g :: low carbohydrate brownies and pancakes too (click here for some recipes, pancakes coming soon).

d r i n k i n g :: too much tea and a lot of water... did I mention the delicious smoothies too?!

r e a d i n g :: The BFG. I am almost done and have quite liked immersing myself in a children's story. I never read that particular book as a kid, so Joe got it for me for Christmas! It makes a nice change for me to read something very easy going.

w a n t i n g :: some new summer clothes. I had a clear out but I am a little low on some things, although I am sure I will make do for another year!

l o o k i n g :: for suppliers for my business ideas.

p l a y i n g :: reggae playlists to match the warmer weather. They always make me feel so much brighter, especially on a Friday!

d e c i d i n g :: that June is the month to launch the business. Scary! Not sure which end of June it will be, but that is the main goal right now.

w i s h i n g :: I could have a make-up spree in Boots.

e n j o y i n g :: getting glimpses of dolphins playing in the sea and the occasional seal popping its head up for a look around.

w a t c h i n g :: all the birds in the garden enjoying the feeder we put out. I find it so relaxing just watching them come and go and listening to them chat away to each other and play in the trees. It reminds me what is important.

w a i t i n g :: for all the things I have been working on to come together and look like something that is more of a 'whole thing' rather than several fractured ideas!

l i k i n g :: wearing my hair in a half-up messy bun.

w o n d e r i n g :: when I should book in for my moon tattoo (maybe a business launch celebration treat?).

l o v i n g :: discovering new wild flowers and realising how much grows in the strangest of places!

h o p i n g :: for more painting time really soon.

m a r v e l l i n g :: over the view from this house every single day.

n e e d i n g :: a hair cut, big time.

s m e l l i n g :: a mixture of freshly cut grass and pub food!

w e a r i n g :: knots tied into the back of overly baggy t-shirts.

f o l l o w i n g :: an inspiring new YouTuber (new to me), called Bethany Tomlinson. Her channel is fitness based information, meals and workouts and she is bloody awesome, not to mention crazy-strong!

n o t i c i n g :: that a few days of tracking my macros really helps me feel better.

k n o w i n g :: that Gizmo is really taking advantage of having me home every day now. She knows how to work the charm on her mummy!

t h i n k i n g :: about food, all day, everyday.

I just thought I would finish with a bit of a promotion for my month of vlogging in May! The hashtag #everydayinmay has been around for years and I thought I would have a go at this as I have never vlogged every single day for a month! Head on over to my YouTube channel 'From Lucy with Love Blog' to subscribe and watch the videos that have gone up so far! I would love to have you along for the ride!

    k n o w i n g :: you've challenged your anxiety in more ways than one - and in turn, you've conquered so much.
