With a little help from our friends…

Hi my lovelies,

So this is actually my first official post… 🙂 How exciting!! And I’m not gonna lie..a little daunting! I’m not an expert blogger or anywhere near! I’m just a normal girl, who had an idea and followed through…But I have to admit, I cannot wait to share my plans with you and get interacting with all of you.   But, before I start I thought it would be good for you to get to know me a little first.  Sooooo…

This huge photo (no idea how to make it smaller lol..I did try!) is of course..ME!

As you know from my main pages- I am an English teacher, I’ve been qualified since 2013 with a masters degree in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).  I do love teaching, but work is very limited here in Northern Ireland and I am quite a home bird, so with most positions being temporary in the meantime whilst I’m not teaching, I will be wedding blogging.

What else can I tell you?… I am 29 years old, so yes the big 3-0 is around the corner! I live a normal life..I am close to my family, I enjoy reading, listening to music and socializing with my friends like anyone really.  I love wine..like I proper love a glass of white wine or prosecco or cava or champagne.. 🙂 There is nothing better than winding down in the evenings with a glass of something.  I like to attempt to cook, but I am no expert…but I do try! 🙂  I love handbags, handbags are my thing that I like to browse at…and then end up accidentally purchasing 😉   I love travelling and visiting new places and I enjoy spending nights at hotels just to relax.  I love love love the sea… I really want to buy a sail boat like a ‘Pico’ or ‘Topper’ and just simply sail the seas lol, that’s the dream! Oh and to protect our sea life…that’s super important to me!

Most of all, I’m lucky enough to have good friends around me… I always follow the saying that a few good friends are better than a lot of fake friends 🙂

So as I want to be upfront and honest from the start- I want to share with you all that I am I am not engaged or anything like that, though I am in a relationship.  Personally, my thoughts are that this is a great place to start at with Ever After by NLT, as I am in a good position to begin right from the outset with not being engaged or married just like some of you. This way I will not only be able to share your journeys but likewise you will all be able to share my own journey step by step 🙂 Anyway, I think that’s enough about me for the meantime… and now onto the actual post!  Here goes….

When I’m struggling with things for example, inspiration on ideas or general hints and tips about dealing with things or with other problems no matter how big or small…I try not to do it alone because it just makes me incredibly anxious.  Instead I know that I can seek out advice from my family, friends and even on the internet- literally everything is so accessible these days.  There are times where we may not want to speak with a close friend or relative, or we are just sick of hearing their advice to be honest lol ;)…so instead we power up the laptop or computer and type in our queries into Google and what do we find?

That we are not alone!!!

There are similar people going through exactly the same thing…there are even comment boxes full of people from all around the world offering their experiences and suggestions as to how to overcome these things.  These ‘online friends’ are fab…whether they are bloggers, or people who have overcome similar experiences, or people who are just genuinely friendly, we can all make use of the information online.

Here at Ever After by NLT, that’s what I hope to achieve.. I hope to become your ‘online friend’ who will help you along your journey in love and life and getting married as I will be publishing posts all about weddings…each and every detail.
