Follow Your Sunshine Is Back!

It’s been a good few weeks now since I published my last post, and over a month since I put Follow Your Sunshine on the back burner while we got married and headed off on honeymoon. I hate to admit it, but despite missing blogging terribly, I am feeling pretty good for having had a bit of a break.

While we were in Italy, we didn’t make a conscious decision to switch off our devices, but it just felt right to do so. That’s not to say that I didn’t find time to sneak in a few sneak peek blog posts of some of the beautiful places we’d been to! But for the majority of our time away, we spent as much time as we could simply enjoying each others’ company and soaking in the excitement of being newly-weds. Mr Sunshine claims that he didn’t even check his work email while we were away, and for my husband this is quite a feat!

Now that we’re back in Qatar and settled into our usual routine, I’m super keen to get going again…and there is so much to talk about, starting with the super-crazy-wonderful-best-day-of-my-life experience that was our Wedding Day!

Following some of the most excitable posts I’ll probably ever write, I will recount our once in a lifetime travels across Italy: through Rome, along The Amalfi Coast and up to Florence, where we breathed in some of the most beautiful views I have ever seen, ate at some of the best restaurants I will ever eat at, and stayed in some of the world’s most luxurious hotels…oh, and did I mention the swimming pools?! 

Needless to say, Mr Sunshine and I fell head over heels in love with Italy, and we found it incredibly difficult to leave.

Luckily, when I’ve written the sad conclusion to this series of honeymoon travel posts, I have a few blog posts lined up that are all about our future and what is coming up next for the Sunshines! It really is going to be an exciting few months for the blog (and actually, for our lives in general!), so make sure you keep up to date by following me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Bloglovin’.

In the meantime, I have a fun giveaway to kick things off tomorrow so I hope you will drop by to check it out and say hi. 

I’ve missed this! It’s so good to be back 🙂
