Goodbye 2015. Hello 2016!

Leave a Comment
Hello 2016!! How are we already in February already?! And this is our first post of 2016. Woops! We do apologise! We missed y'all. We promise! We had a wonderful Christmas with Megan's family in the UK, followed by a couple of weeks (including New Years) in America with Whitney's family. 


Lets have a little look back at 2015, what we hoped to achieve, what we ended up doing and what we hope 2016 has in store!...

What we hoped for 2015...
  • Lets get back to the gym and lose some of our love pounds! ... HA.  Ummm...Nope. I think we entered the gym 10 times (if that!) last year. Whenever we return we absolutely love it and enjoy going, as well as catching up with our old Circuits class mates. Shame we can never leave work on time to attend anymore!! 
  • We want to do some work on our house- finally paint the front door and our bedroom, make our lounge more cosy etc. YES! Wohoo! We sure did!! We love our grey bedroom (thanks to Design by Larose) and our beautiful mint door. Lets not forget our massive love seat!
  • Continue to succeed at our jobs. Yup & Yup. 
  • Make more Youtube videos (rather than just vlogs!)  Yes and no... we went through a period of filming quite a few non-vlog videos but lately, it's all about the vlogs. We need more time in our lives! (We've been planning a collab with Luclyn for YEARS. No joke. HA!)
  • Post more blog posts and keep up to date with what we get up to (this year I managed to do 40 blog posts, even less than the year before and missed out on so many events). No.. oh dear. I only managed 31 posts. Sob! However I did start a qualification in Sep 2015, and we launched a dating website so I think we're kinda excused there... sorta. 
So what DID we do in 2015?!

  • Whitney began her new job as Account Manager and Megan as HR Advisor.
  • Saw our dear friends Lee & Dave get married.
  • We took a wonderful trip to Mykonos in May for Megan's birthday.
  • Celebrated Whitney's birthday by dining at Hakkasan.
  • We got to see our friends Bria & Chrissy, and Lucy (miss you Kaelyn!)
  • Whitney's mother visited us in Summer and we took a trip with both our mothers to Brighton.
  • Seth and Jeff visited us for Thanksgiving, and we took a day trip to Bath.
  • Attended the LGBT Awards Nomination party, got to meet the fab girl band Stooshe and see Nadine Coyle perform!
  • Celebrated our 3 year Civil Partnership anniversary and 7 year anniversary!
  • Attended London Pride and got to meet the lovely Vicky Beeching.
  • Megan started her CIPD Level 7 Qualification.
  • Got to see 'Tipping the Velvet' AND meet Sarah Waters!
  • Developed and created our dating site Find Femmes, with a launch party in  October 2016!
  • Featured on BBC News (BBC Breakfast and Online) as part of their Civil Partnership anniversary special. 
  • Celebrated Christmas in the UK and brought in 2016 in America.

It's rather impossible to include all the amazing little moments that we spent together and with our dearest friends and family. However 2015 was also a very hard year for us all as we sadly lost a very dear member to our family, Auntie Steve. Not a day goes by that we don't all miss her. We were ever so blessed to have such a wonderful woman in our lives and it's still hard to believe she is no longer with us.


What does 2016 hold for Wegan?
  • Continue focusing on building the success of Find Femmes
  • Megan to successfully complete her CIPD qualification!
  • Make more time for blogs, vlogs, videos... collab with Luclyn!
  • Travel more: Hawaii, LA, Bahama's will do nicely...
  • Plan our 2017 wedding!!! Yes. For real this time! #wegging2017
  • Be bridesmaids to Megan's sister and see Lauren get married to Harry!! (and attend a hen do!)
  • Celebrate Megan's mum's 60th and Whitney's mum's 50th.
  • Oh hello gym. Nice to see you again. 
  • Whitney to obtain dual citizenship!
  • 2016 may bring a very exciting project into our lives, but we can't discuss that yet! Sorry! Keep everything crossed for us. 

What are your 2016 goals/ plans?

Civil Partnerships 10 Year Anniversary!

Leave a Comment
This weekend marks the 10 year anniversary since Civil Partnerships became legal in the UK. We both remember when CP became legal, and can't believe that it's already been 10 years! Yet it's also surreal to think it was a mere 10+ years ago that same sex couples did not have this right. 

We're very grateful for Civil Partnerships in offering us the opportunity to finally conquer long distance and live our lives together.  I still stand by what I mentioned in a blog post back in 2012 about Long Distance Loving: The Good, The Bad, The Ugly: "THANK YOU BRITAIN for having civil partnerships in place. Whilst we may be getting gay marriage in a few years to come, I'm just glad that we have a system that recognises and legitimises same sex relationships."
In order to honour such a momentous milestone, we look back over the last 4 years of our lives together in the UK as 'wife and wife' in the below video. 
Today you may also come across us on the BBC News (which is just absolutely amazing to be apart of). Hello to anyone new checking us out, feel free to have a read about our engagement in Hawaii or all the details about our Civil Partnership!

Let's raise a glass and cheers to equality!
