You’ve been a peach. You’ve brought me so many amazing adventures and new friends near and far.
Sure there have been headaches and heart breaks, but let’s not focus on the bad. There’s always a silver lining, and that’s what I’m choosing to hang onto during the last few hours of 2011, and into the new year – embracing those bright and shining moments throughout the past year that have put the biggest most dorkiest smile on my face.
Finding hidden beauty in whatever I might.
Traveling and experiencing as much of that great big world out there as I possibly could.
Persevering through a few rough semesters at university. I love what I do, and I can’t wait to start a new chapter in 2012 after graduation.
Bidding farewell to glasses!
Dying my hair red! 11 months and going strong. I think it’s getting serious. ;)
Made some bunny friends…
… and some wallaby friends…
… and some koala friends, too. And the real people kind, but they’re not quite as fluffy.
Experienced many incredible sights from lands far away.
Enough to fill many-a memory bank.
Went to my first opera at, none other than, the Sydney Opera House!
And took in as much art, music, architecture, etc. as I could possibly manage.
Rekindled my love of painting.
Hung out in dresses at any and all opportunities.
Continued to craft up a storm and be a DIY machine.
Began getting the finishing touches in place on my humble little abode.
Discovered and fell in love with a home away from home.
Began preparations for a new and exciting year ahead.
And now, here’s to lots of huge smiles in 2012! I hope yours are extra tooth-y. ;) Wishing you love, muffins, sparkles, bunnies, and all sorts of other lovely things… Happy New Year to all of you amazing blogging friends.
