WEDDING EDIT: THE PLANNER

This is a short post for today, but I want to share my experience of wedding planning so far. Being more aware of my stress levels, and how pressure affects my health I was (kind of) dreading planning. You never know when a Crohn’s flare is going to hit. The thought of having to firstly [...]

BEHIND THE BLOG

I talk a lot about my life, living with Crohn’s Disease. My instagram is @crohnswithme and I did set this up as a safe space to post about, almost as a visual diary, and the document the ups and downs of Crohn’s.  As you can see from this blog, travelling and exploring is a huge [...]
