One of the great things about having your own little space on the internet, is that it gives you the chance to document parts of your life enabling you to look back in years to come. I often read earlier posts on Charlotte's Obsessions, and aside from cringing at my make-up choice it's great to see where you were a few years ago. That being said, I feel I have been fairly withdrawn from the blogging world over the past 18 months or so, so I thought I'd do a little update as things are looking positive for us.
In the July of 2012, I graduated from University with little understanding of where I wanted life to take me. Andy still had a year left at University so I embarked on a year of living in limbo. Pre university, and during I worked at Pizza Hut (which is where Andy and I actually met), after University I found myself being a full time hutter, not exactly the career I had in mind. Fast forward several months, I landed a job in the digital marketing industry which believe me, during my Educational Studies degree I never thought that would be where I ended up.
Then, last Summer, Andy graduated with a high first class honours degree and I literally could not of been prouder. Life then got messy, we had no idea where or what we wanted to do, living in a seaside town with limited opportunities was hard and Andy was getting knocked back from various jobs so we had to rely on him working full time at the hut. Last October, we made the decision to move in with his parents so we could save some money so that if we decided to up sticks and move, we could. The older you get the more you realise how life revolves around money. We're incredibly grateful for having the chance to live with them and get on our feet.
Two weeks ago, we received some incredible news, something that was set to change everything and give us direction. 12 months after graduating, Andy has landed a job that is full of promising opportunities for him and for the first time, it means we have some direction as to where our life's are potentially heading. (There has been a lot of consumption of the below lately, not that I'm complaining)
At the end of this month, we'll celebrate six years together. Don't get me wrong, they've not all been perfect but I wouldn't swap a single day because each argument and smile has brought us to where we are today. I'm a typical "the glass is half empty" kind of person, but for the first time in a while, the glass is half full and that's pretty exciting.
