Thank You!

Happy Half Birthday to us!!! We’ve been going for 6 months!

Team Blossom have had another positive get together today to discuss all things blog related (and a bit of gossip too!) and we can’t believe it’s been 6 months since we started on this adventure. It’s been a challenging and interesting process so far, and we are both immensely proud of what we have achieved since we started. That also includes our total fangirling moment when Myleene Klass liked and commented on our Instagram picture of her!

From our first introductory posts (see here) back in October 2014, we’ve shared posts on baking, beauty, fashion and photography to name but a few. And there will be many more to come as we move forward in our blog adventure.

We wanted to say a huge thank you to all our followers, who have interacted with our blog in the last few months, we really appreciate your interest and support through our journey. You may notice today we’ve also split our twitter account into two, and you can follow us individually at @btfsuzy and @btfclare.

Today also marks the brave decision to start telling our friends and family about the blog! Whilst it’s not been kept a massive secret, we haven’t been actively promoting the blog on our personal social media accounts, but that is all set to change from today. So welcome to our loved ones, we hope you enjoy reading about our lives, and we’d love to hear your thoughts too.

Clare & Suzy xx

7 things about Suzy

I lick Oxo cubes. Weird, yes. Disgusting? Most certainly. Tasty? Damn straight.

One day I want to run my own business. I have a ton of ideas floating around in my head, and when the circumstances are better, I’m gonna go for it – 100%.

I travelled the world with my husband in 2009/2010 after being made redundant. It was one of the most wonderful experiences of my life, but the best thing was it made our relationship stronger than ever!

I’m a fiercely loyal friend. My oldest friends I’ve known since I was 4 and there’s a reason we’ve stuck together over the years…they just can’t get rid of me!

I never in a million years thought I’d ever want to get involved in writing a blog, and when we decided to do this, I had soooo many reservations. But I’m thrilled with how well I’ve taken to it and I’m proud of what we’ve achieved so far.

I have webbed toes. They are the cutest thing you will ever see, and if you ask me, all your toes are weird and not mine!

My sister and her family live in Australia, they moved there in 2008. I have a nephew who I’ve not met, but I face time them constantly, miss them like mad and can’t wait to see them soon.

7 things about Clare

I’m a vegetarian which was a natural decision for me after spending a lot of time in a Butcher’s Shop when I was young (Dad was a butcher – put me off for life!)

As an animal lover, I’ve had the pleasure of living with 7 dogs, 10 hamsters, 3 fish, 2 cockatiels, 1 budgie, 1 stick insect, a rabbit and a guinea pig although not all at the same time.

I’m a complete nerd. I really love listening to intelligent people using clever words & good grammar and I wish I could speak and write as eloquently as they do.

I am 33 but I love Disney – watching films, listening to Disney songs and shopping at The Disney Store. I’m off to Disneyland in August with my husband, daughter & in-laws and cannot wait!

I am most definitely Team Apple.

My daughter is the light of my life.

I’m married to a man I met when I was 12. He is kind, ambitious and caring. I never thought I’d get to marry someone like him. Good guys do exist.
