What a year! 2013 has been a big one for us, in so many different ways. At times it has been challenging, but those times have been few and far between. It has been a great year, and I’m excited for what the next 12 months might bring.
Some of the year’s highlights:
~ Tiny started kindergarten, taking the whole shebang in his stride. He has developed so many skills and friendships of his own, which is awesome to witness;
~ Pickle turned one, which brought with it the challenges of learning to crawl, then walk, and talk. He’s such a character and I love watching his personality shine through;
~ we accidentally bought a new house; and
~ we sold our old house in a matter of days;
~ my sister and her family came for a visit from Melbourne and I adored watching Tiny play with his cousins;
~ I scored a fancy new look for the blog, which has given me a renewed passion for keeping this little space o’ mine alive.
I have no idea what 2014 will be, but I’m hoping it rivals 2013 in sheer awesomeness. Just quietly, I’m hoping it quickly brings a change in Pickle’s sleeping habits, but other than that…we shall see!
Wherever you are, however you’re celebrating, I hope that the new year is big, bright and beautiful for you and the people you love.
(I’m about to put Pickle to bed, then I’m going to cook a date-night-in tapas feast for my love, and pop open a bottle of champagne. And if I’m completely honest, I’ll probably be in bed by 10pm!)
