Retrospective: Looking Back On 2015

My life at the end of 2015 looks nothing like I expected it would at the beginning of the year in more ways than one. Yes I've eaten some fantastic things and traveled some amazing places, and I probably saw my working on the General Election coming, but from that I did not expect to actually go off and do a job that was not related to my blog, and then there are a whole host of other, exciting life changes that I'll be sharing with you all when the time is right. Happy New Year, by the way. As per tradition, while you're all getting over your New Years Eve hangovers, I thought I'd put together a round up of my favourite posts, restaurants and recipes from the past year to kick off your 2016. Here is to another fantastic year!

So, a lot of things happened in May. Since, well, March I'd fallen head first back into the world of politics (you know, that thing in Westminster I'd almost convinced myself I did not want to go into after university), and against all the odds, we won an election. Now, I don't usually talk about my day job/ politics here on my blog and that is not going to change, but I felt that not mentioning the election in my round up of the year would not really explain how different the latter half of 2015 worked out for me. So, we won an election. A couple of days later, after weeks of long days culminating in a tense and emotional  all-nighter, I hopped on a plane to recover for a month in Los Angeles, my beloved second city I had not set foot in in almost two years.

I hope you've enjoyed this trip through 2015 with me. Looking back, I love how much my blog keeps a record of my life, so that I can look back myself and be reminded of everything that has happened in a year. Happy New Year to you all, and I hope 2016 brings everything you could wish for. I know the first half of the year is going to be super busy for me, but I know that it is going to be a super awarding one, too!
