Happy New Year to all my lovely followers and readers, I hope you all had a great night, however you spent it. I myself spent it with my boyfriend and his best friend and girlfriend, we had a little couples night in. We ordered a takeaway and played Pictionary and toasted the New Year in with a lovely bottle of Laurent Perrier…yum yum! So all in all it was very civilised, especially considering I can’t even remember last New Years Eve…. I must be maturing.
2011 for me was a year of dreams coming true, due to the amazing time I spent living and studying in France. Since I was a little girl I have always wanted to live in France, so to actually accomplish this has made me a very happy lady. I had the best time of my life, visiting some amazing places, meeting great new friends and making perfect memories. At times it was hard, especially leaving my boyfriend and family behind, but I think it has made me grow as a person.
During the summer of 2011 I got the chance to backpack around areas of Europe with my boyfriend, I especially loved Italy.
One major high point of 2011 was my mother overcoming her battle with breast cancer. She had been fighting it for 18 months prior, so this year she has been announced as being cancer free and is in remission, she also got engaged to her boyfriend, so my mum’s health and happiness has been a great blessing to me.
My best friend also got married in the summer to her lovely fella, and I had the honour of being Bridesmaid. We had a great time planning the wedding, a fun filled Hen Weekend, and a perfect wedding day.
I also celebrated 4 amazing years together with my boyfriend. We went to Edinburgh for a romantic weekend, and stayed at an amazing 5 star hotel and spa, and had dinner at a 3 Rosette restaurant, it was perfect.
For 2012 I have a lot going on; graduation, finding a job, perhaps relocating, my mothers wedding, hopefully passing my driving test.
At the moment I feel quite daunted by the prospect of this year, as come this time next year, I could be in a whole new location working at a new job that I hopefully love, but it’s my life so I have to live it!
What are your main goals for the year? What will you cherish from 2011?
