When is a better time to look back and reflect upon a year, as your birthday. Tomorrow I turn 28, which I am still counting as mid 20s 😉 and here are some of my moments, big and small from year number 27.
Moving to Chile :: This was of course the biggest change of this year, and perhaps my life so far. Now, it’s been over 8 months of living in Chile.
Skipping the seasons :: I managed to fit two summers into this year as I skipped from Autumn in England to Spring in Chile. DIY wedding planning :: We arrived in Chile with just seven weeks to go until we got married, meaning lots of wedding preparation.Finding beauty in the everyday :: Moving to another country definitely taught me to look a little closer and find the beauty in the most ordinary things. Being in new surroundings helps you to do that and gives you new eyes.Getting married :: 26th December 2015 was the best day 🙂Having my family and friends come to Santiago for our wedding :: We were so lucky to have friends and family visit us in Chile from all over the world (England, South Korea, Russia, Japan, Mexico and Ecuador). We got to show them some of Chile and spend Christmas and new year together.Visiting my favourite city again :: Valparaíso, Chile is one of my favourite cities for it’s art, colour and vibrance so living in Santiago means I get to visit often.Honeymooning in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia :: One of the most amazing places I’ve ever been. We had an incredible ten day honeymoon in the most beautiful place.Flat moving :: We moved into our flat in February and love it so, especially the views that I never stop talking about!Mountain gazing :: I never tire of the mountain view here in Santiago, it really is special. And, we get the best view from our balcony too! Sunset seeking :: I’m not used to seeing so many sunsets in London, but have loved seeing the dramatic sky tones here and how they differ every day.Adventuring :: There is so much adventure to be found right on your doorstep, you just have to find it. Lots of our weekends have been about finding adventure close by. That was 27. Now, it’s time for 28 🙂

Thanks for posting! Enjoyed the album.
Glad you enjoyed it!
Thanks Tanja! 🙂
Hmm…seems like everything was planned in advanced for the future!
Happy Birthday!! 28 is definitely mid 20’s 😉 Beautiful sunset photos!
Thanks Sammy and Tim! You can never beat a beautiful sunset 🙂
Happy birthday! What an epic adventure 27 was!! Can’t wait to see what 28 has in store! Those sunsets are awe inspiring.
It looks like 27 was filled with so many changes, but also so many wonderful memories! That’s so awesome that y’all had so many people fly in from all of those countries for your wedding! And I would totally take 2 summers over 2 winters every year!
Thanks so much! We were so lucky with our wedding guests coming over 🙂
That looks like an amazing year! Cheers to 28!
Thanks Van! 🙂
Amazing! Happy 28! That’ll be me next year 😉
Thanks Mani! I think that 28 is a great age 😉
Gorgeous post! Happy birthday.
Thanks so much, Mike! 🙂
Happy Birthday 🙂 Wow – what an incredible year you have had!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Happy birthday! I hope you’re having a great time in the UK and are managing to eat plenty of cake. That’s one good thing about the grim weather, it makes it perfectly acceptable to stuff one’s face!
(Still can’t get over the fact we met IRL and didn’t even know it. So crazy!)
Thanks so much Rachel!! Whaaaat is up with this weather? I need to go back to Chilean winter for some sun 😉
Still can’t get over the fact that we met too, so funny! 😀
Happy happy birthday!!! Hope year 28 is as good as 29 was for you 🙂 xo
Thank you, Amy! 🙂
Looks like you had such a wonderful year! Happy birthday Marcella, wish you all the very best in life 🙂 xoxo, nano
Thanks for your lovely message, Nano! 🙂
28 looks like it’s going to be great based on 27! (and I LOVE your wedding dress)
Thanks so much, I was so pleased with my dress 🙂
Happy birthday again 🙂 What a wonderful year! I love the wedding photos, you guys look so full of happiness and love. And your flat views are just incredible! Oh and I definitely claimed 28 as mid-20s…. sadly had to give that up at 29! 😉
Thanks so much, Jessi! I adore our flat views, we are so lucky 🙂
Haha, I’m very sure that 28 cannot be really counted as mid twenties either 😉
