Happy new year!
I hope you've had a fabulous 2011 and that your hopes and dreams for 2012 are fulfilled - and then some!
2011 has been a big year for me and for my family; moving cities/states, welcoming a new baby, and in many ways it has been like starting fresh. I'm sure you can imagine that starting fresh can be both a good and a bad thing, maybe bad is not the right word - daunting, hard, sad and sometimes lonely but on the flip side empowering, exciting, challenging and full of promise!
I have made some fabulous new friends here in Melbourne and have I have also had the opportunity to re-kindle old friendships. Moving interstate has damaged friendships also, I suppose 'out of sight out of mind' and having busy friends leading exciting busy lives have been a few of the many reasons, and I too have been busy and found it hard to keep in contact, so all round that has been a bit of a bummer. The lovely thing is that the few times I've been able to visit home, we've been able to pick up where we left off, such a beautiful quality in a friendship, don't you agree?
Being able to pick up where I left off is my hope for this blog too, I've had an epic absence, a longer break then I have ever had before in the few years I've been blogging. I'm not one for new years resolutions, so instead I'll just say - see you soon.
