The (not so) Very Short Shorts and The Love Story That Followed

Holy Guacamole, I started a podcast!

Eeeek I am so excited! This is something I've been thinking about for a while and this morning I just thought. HECKIN YES, let's do it! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

I guess it was kinda suitable to do it today of all days. Because, five years ago TODAY, Early May Bank Holiday in 2013, things were about to change for good, forever. And that's what I'm telling you allll about on the podcast today!

Winter Engagement Session // London

Two years ago, April hadnโ€™t even planned on going to that party. 

The party where sheโ€™d sit up all night, talking to a handsome stranger. The party where she met Ricardo.

Ever felt like everyone else seems to be doing SOO well and have it all figured out, while youโ€™re over there all like โ€ฆ โ€œI have NO clue what Iโ€™m doing, or if I should even keep going?!โ€?!

Today we went down to West Wittering Beach by Chichester and I think I realised how much I miss the ocean. Maybe if you're a countryside gal who is now living in the city, you might know what I'm talking about.
