Well, if it needs to be done, then today is the day... and 2011 was full of surprises. Good and bad. Full of many adventures and the building of some great bonds between friends. The sad, sudden and tragic loss of my Dad in July to the wonderful family holiday we had exploring our country. All eventful and all burned in our memories for the duration. Too many stories to write in one post.
But what I will share is this. I have grown more appreciative of my own little family. I am grateful for the memories we will share and the stories I have already documented through this blog and my scrapbooking. I am looking forward to the new challenges of 2012. Already it promises to be an exciting year for me.
This Christmas I created some photo books to hand out to family. Documenting our last 12 months.
This is something I look forward to doing each and every year from now on. Sorry folks if you were the recipient of one of these book for 2011. It looks like you may get some more in the future! hahaha! But anyway.. I know I will be conscious of the fact that I want to now fill my Christmas photo book full of meaningful snapshots. Those quiet moments captured secretly on film, the joyous moments of our achievements shouted out for all to hear and see and of course the everyday miracles.
That is my aim for next year. To enjoy. To capture. To document more and more. Less embellishments and flourishes. More facts and anecdotes of everyday life.
Happy New Year my friends. I hope 2012 is good and kind to you all....x
