So, earlier today, I posted all about the challenges I've been facing since I started my new life down south. However, I ended the post on a positive note, saying that I'm reading to focus on the good in my life and jump over the hurdles the universe has placed in my path. One of the ways I've decided to bring my focus round to the better parts of my life is by participating in the 100 Happy Days Challenge. I actually started doing this well before my house woes presented themselves and it has been lovely little part of my day that has reminded me it's not all doom and gloom. I recently reached day 50 and am now halfway through the challenge, so I thought I'd share the pictures I'd snapped so far.

I actually have so much going on in my life right now, good stuff and I can't wait to share it all on this blog. From now on, I'll be doing weekly #100happydays updates or if you want to see them daily, you can follow me on Instagram.
