NYE 2012

New Years Eve....

It's always a great time to look back at the past 12mths and reflect on things you have achieved, lost, etc etc..

2012 was a huge year for us...

There were some sad times...
  • Lady June Blundell {Patron of St John Youth} died... I loved Lady B very much and will miss her dearly
  • One of the hockey mum's who I was very close with, died suddenly leaving behind a great man and 3 amazing kids aged 12 and under
  • My Besties sister was diagnosed with Cancer
And some great times...

  •  Me and Ian got engaged!
  • Me and Ian bought a house!
  • We all moved into said house!
  • Me and Ian then spent 10 long weeks commuting Paris and Josh across Auckland to finish out the year at school
  • The highlight of the year - Me and Ian got married in a lovely beach ceremony which was everything we wanted and then some
Over all... we had a great year... I dont' think any other year can even come close to topping 2012... see you all in 2013

The week before Christmas this year has been extremely hot... so what better way to cool off than in the pool at my Aunt's house

Excitement +++

today I get to see my best friend Mel for the first time since October 2009!! I'm so super duper excited... I can hardley contain my excitment... She fly's into Auckland at 11am!!! I will be heading off to her sisters house for a catch up shortly after midday...normally I would be at the airport to meet her, but I have to make a birthday cake for my niece before I can leave the house :)
Did I tell you I'm excited??
You see, Mel lives in Switzerland... she moved there when we were still teenagers, but our friendship has never died, infact, I believe that it is stronger now than ever... I think of her every single day... and today... I get to hug her! I can't wait!
