  1. The incredible feeling I get when singing along to my favorite musicians… LIVE. Nothing can beat the tranquility and absolute happiness I feel when the music is so good that my eyes water, my hair stands up from head to toe and my heart beats in time with the sounds.
  2. Needles… and not in a good way – they are my biggest fears.  I get like this girl does – LOL! Yes, I know I have a tattoo, but it is so different. It just is.

Life by Numbers

I’ve found that the biggest secret to keeping up a blog is to just keep going! I’ll admit that blogging does mess with my mind as I have a picture in my head of how it should be and should look. BUT I’d rather wait and write a piece that I’m proud of and that I LOVE and that I WANT to share with YOU.

I’ve done soooo much over the last few months that I’m a little lost with everything that’s going on- yet at the same time, I feel like I haven’t done anything- makes sense, right?

In school I got a C for Maths (not great – whoop whoop for a pass though!), but here are some more impressive numbers that made up my 2013 year:

  • I became an Aunt… 3 times! So that’s 3 little nephews: Riley, Joshua and Frank.
  • I saw 20 of my favourite music artists live. Katy Perry is next! 😀
  • I drove around 6,450 miles in my first year of driving (includes one return trip to Scotland = circa 746 miles)
  • I visited 1 new country (Belgium) – I say that’s impressive as some people don’t have the opportunity to travel.
  • I took 191 photos on Instagram (Taylaac4)
  • I was nominated in 4 out of the 6 categories at our work’s awards evening- one category included the award for “Working Together” where I was part of the winning team.
  • I got the key to the door of life itself- I turned 21!!!
  • England became my home of 3 years.
  • With a little help from my friends, I raised £2,500 for Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children by skydiving and having the greatest adrenaline rush.
  • I survived another year… that’s 12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days, 8,760 hours, 525,600 minutes and 31,536,000 seconds. Way to go!!!!

Much love,

Tayla

OH WHAT A SURPRISE! I’ve done it again… I have abandoned my followers… WTF man??? I don’t know whether I’m coming or going either to be fair… but fear not- I haven’t forgotten about the old blog. I do admit that I am pretty rubbish at keeping it up to date, but I made no promises, therefore have told no lies.

In the meantime, while I gather my thoughts, have a look at the cutest little pooch known to man. Ladies and gentlemen… I present to you….

THE PUG!!!
