Today is St Dwynwen day in Wales- she is the patron saint of lovers in wales, you can read more about her tale here. Above is a picture of Llanddwyn Island, the home of Dwynwen, which is on south of Anglesey and is such a pretty place- I was just one cove along when we went walking in Malltraeth two weeks ago.
Iestyn and I aren't planning on doing anything particularly special this evening, we had seen a pop up restaurant which was offering a Santes Dwynwen meal in a cafe at the foot of Snowdon, which sounded absolutely fab, but as we still have a week of paleo left, we decided to stay strong for now, and we have an Indian meal planned for next Friday after our first CrossFit session instead.
Seeing as today is a day for lovers, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to share what I love this week. Way back when, I used to take part in TILT, but that habit fell by the wayside. Taking a moment to think about what you are grateful for can really have an uplifting affect on your day. Obviously I would love to be sharing lots of pictures of all my favourite things this week, but without my phone I just haven't been taking any pictures. I have to say, after losing my phone on Saturday (still haven't found it!), it created quite a lot of negativity, and generally just feeling frustrated at how much of a pain in the arse it is! So this week, I feel that writing this list is quite cathartic and theraputic, a way to shed light on all the positives, in order to fight the negativity.
