I don't even have the words to put together what this year has been for me. Well, at least not without wanting to cry.

We started off the year with my best friend getting married. Little did we know our travels within that month would lead to us buying a house in our favourite small town. We nested and nested in anticipation of our sweet boy and when he did join us, our lives were changed forever.

This year has held so much for us. I experienced life and loss. I made new friends - some beautiful people who have accepted me. It is not easy being the new girl in a small town! I've watched my partner become a father and my parents have watched me become a mother.

2014 is the year we will chase the things we want to do and yearn to do and promise ourselves to never just "get by" in life. Luke will surf more, my camera will snap more and as a family we will love more.

From my heart to yours, I wish you the best in this new year. I thank you for your support, your comments, your kind words that have encouraged and driven me to dare to be who I am. May these next 365 days be so very merry and bright!


  1. Beautiful words and photo! 2013 was a big year for us too and now it feels like it went past in a flash, looking forward to seeing what 2014 holds in store. xx
