May in Review

Welcome to the almost half way point in the year! How scary is that!

It's been a hectic month for me, with lots going on. Some super stressful things like my bike ending up basically totalled after an incident with a bike rack on the car, some fun stuff too though- doing the London Eye at dusk for T's birthday being an especial highlight...

I had a tough month reconciling how I felt about myself as a blogger and whether I was in fact a bit of fraud. It's tough to know sometimes, if you should be justifying what you choose and choose not to share, since I think we all assume that readers understand that they never see and we couldn't ever share 100% of everything we do. I strive for honesty, integrity and reality on what I choose to post, and I'm still sitting on the fence as to how I feel about it all. You can read my post HERE - On Inspiration & Fraud

I've been back into the swing of posting regular Chloe Likes To Eat posts this month. I talked a lot about some of my favourite salads as it's my preferred lunch and shared my five favourites that were all about keeping things interesting (read: contain more than lettuce). Receiving tweets from people who had a go at some of them and really enjoyed what they cooked really made my week.

And I put an outfit post up earlier this week too. Not something I do as much as I used to, but enjoyable anyway.

After the strains of May I'm most excited for June. June is my birthday but most importantly, we're off on holiday next week- 2 weeks of rest and relaxation and time to enjoy some good weather, good food and even better wine. Can you tell I'm looking forward to it? I have lots of lovely posts planned in for whilst I'm away, so I hope you'll find plenty to read over the coming month. and as a little bonus perk, I'll leave you with a picture of an old man who was only pleased to see me in the 10 minutes it took him to realise I was disrupting his sleeping.

A very sleepy old man who wasn't too keen on the bank holiday disruption.
