Goodbye 2012 you've been good to me...

I can't believe that another year has passed. 2012 has been mostly good, although sad with it being the first year without my brother. A year already, wow.

But this year bought me the most amazing gift, Ava. I don't know what I would do without her, she is everything. We moved house twice (in one year! Crazy!), went on our first family holiday to Cyprus and had lots of fun along the way.

I learnt a lot about myself this year, I learnt that no matter how many books you read or episodes of "One born every minute" you watch you will NEVER be prepared for motherhood, I learnt that moving house is literally the worst thing and I never want to do it again-I'm happy here, thank you and I learnt to appreciate my life a bit more, I think that before everything happened with my brother I really did take my life for granted. I have learnt that life is fleeting and I am stronger than I thought I was.

I'm looking forward to 2013, sometimes I wish I had a crystal ball but I hope it brings me good things.

 I have a few goals for next year, mainly:
-Plan my wedding
-Get fit
-Drink more water
-Take more photos
-Stop being so messy and be more organised.

We shall see if any of these happen!
Below are a few of my favourite pictures from this year.

I hope that 2013 is good to you, I hope your dreams stay big and your worries stay small.

I started the year pregnant...

It's a girl!

What a beautiful recap! I love seeing how she's grown!

Are you growing your hair out? :)


Kristen said...

You've had a busy year, Ava is gorgeous!

Thanks Emily. We've been laughing at how little hair Ava had! Poor thing!

Yes trying to grow it out for my wedding. I thought I could have more options of how it wear it on the day if it was longer. Happy New Year x

2012 was good to me too! I can agree 100% with you that you can never be prepared for a child. I had my first November 10th and I am learning new things every day. I honestly do not know what I did before motherhood. And you officially have a new follower here and I look forward to reading more from you.

I found you through the Followers to Friends Blog Hop on I AM PISCES. If you get a chance take a look at my blog at
