Kate's Top Dates for 2023

It’s time to wave goodbye to 2022 and look ahead to all the exciting things to come in the new year. Set those resolutions, look forward to new beginnings and plan those special trips and celebrations. Nothing beats the feeling of opening a brand new diary (digital calendars simply can’t compete!) and adding reminders of loved one’s birthdays, anniversaries, and dates to remember. After all, it’s better to plan ahead and stock up than send the dreaded belated birthday card! With this in mind, we’ve picked out some important occasions for 2023 that we think you’ll want to write in your diary:
