Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013…

Posted By on Jan 10, 2013 | 3 comments

So 2012, you were quite something! I can honestly say that I have not done so much in one year than I did with you! Not only did I marry my best friend (March) we also honeymooned in Thailand (his first official overseas trip). And upon our return we started the search for a home of our own (April/May). And one Sunday we happened upon the house that is now our home. We had our bond granted (May), we packed our things at my uncle’s house (he was sad to see us go), and then we moved in (August)! It’s been amazing (and hard work) making it our home! Yes there are still a few boxes to unpack and clutter to sort, a garden to landscape, changes to be made, but it’s ours and the past few months have been awesome! I still walk around most days and think “wow, is this really my house?”.

So considering how busy 2012 was, 2013 what do you have in store?! I hope you’re quieter allowing me the time to enjoy my husband, my home, my family and friends. I hope that there’ll be time to unpack the last boxes and settle in. I hope that we’ll be able to start with the cosmetic changes of paint colours, new curtains and hanging pictures. I hope that the weeks won’t be so frantic with work that all I want to do on the weekends is sleep. I hope for an easy 2013…

  1. if you need any help doing those last few boxes – i have some severe nesting syndrome and nothing to do with it since i’ve completely organised my own home and even packed most of our stuff for the move in march!

    • I was convinced for a moment, until I realised that I need to be the one to sort through and chuck out or keep… Maybe you can be my cheerleader on the side?!
