And with a blink of an eye, 2015 has flashed past! All my good resolutions regarding this blog went pretty much out the window – woops! I have a Moleskine notebook that I use to draft blog posts before typing them up on the computer, which I somehow managed to lose. I had about 5 drafts in there, and I was so frustrated that I may have thrown in the towel. Which is terrible! But 2016, it is on like Donkey Kong!
Now, some of my highlights from 2015 …
I survived a year of being married! It was our one year anniversary on 27 September, and I can honestly say that it has been awesome. I wasn’t really the type of girl who daydreams about her wedding, and could never picture myself as a ‘Mrs’, but it has been incredible. I haven’t actually gotten around to changing my name, but I DID change my Facebook status to married (after a year), which is pretty much the same thing.
I took part in some incredible dancing experiences, one of which was even paid! These included performing at a wedding, flashmobs for events, a flashmob performance to promote the launch of the Hopman Cup, and an annual dance concert.It has been incredible getting back into dancing, and I have a feeling 2016 is going to be even more fun.
My sister turned 30 in 2015 and she entrusted me with organising her party. We went with a “Leaving the 20s behind” theme and I did everything – invitations (thank goodness for Paperless Post!!), venue, additional drinks and catering, styling … there was muchos glitter, gold, sequins, DIY champagne cocktails and cupcakes (all gluten free!) and best of all, my sister loved it. Or at least she told me that she did!
Other highlights included hanging out with my perfect 10 of a husband, travelling for both work and pleasure (Broome, Melbourne, Karratha a few times and Adelaide for Christmas being the standouts), catching up with friends, seeing the giants wander down the streets of Perth, starting yoga, trying stand-up paddleboarding for the first time and eating lots of good food!
