It’s been such a great week and it’s nice to get a chance to drop in here at last! I’m going to be celebrating with a new giveaway later next week so scroll down to hear about what has been happening :)
I’ll start with telling you about last weekend when I had the pleasure of visiting the beautiful Norfolk coastline with my family. It’s been three years since we last went there and I couldn’t wait to get to the seaside and see my favourite beach huts again. The beach huts are at Wells-next-the-Sea on what I think is one of the most beautiful stretches of sandy beach in the country. There are about 200 of them in a row, each one a different shape, size and colour. I love that there are stairways to each of them – I could have spent ages wandering along trying to decide which one I’d choose to be mine :)
Further along the coast is a beach at Holkham which is a huge expanse of golden sand and it’s just breathtaking when you first step out of the dunes and see all that space before you. To see it on such a beautiful day was a real treat, especially watching the sun set behind the trees in the distance. We also ventured a little further around the coast to Horsey to visit a colony of seals who spend each winter on the beach. I couldn’t believe we were able to walk right up to them without them being bothered by us at all :)
While I was enjoying all of this lovely scenery there was also something else very exciting happening. Second by second I began receiving notifications from Instagram and I noticed I had a direct message from the main Instagram account. It turned out that I have been put on the suggested users list which has led to receiving over 50,000 notifications in a week!! It’s hard to believe that in so little time my followers have gone up to 45k – it’s a little overwhelming really! I love the Instagram community and am lucky to have become friends with such creative and inspiring people on there, and so I just want to say thanks to Instagram and thanks to everyone who follows, likes and comments on my photos. It really has made my week :)
As I mentioned at the start of the post, I’ll be celebrating by holding a giveaway on my blog and Instagram account. One follower will receive a professionally framed print of one of my Instagrams and all the details will be revealed here in the next few days! I can’t wait!
So for now I’ll say cheerio and I’ll be back soon to share more of life lately, x
