2015 | the year that was


Sold our little house in the city. Bought a farm. Bought a tractor. Took some art classes. Took some woodwork classes. Got some much needed sleep. Rediscovered my love of dance after more than two decades. Went to an audition. Performed in a local production. Listened to my kids read. Neglected my camera. Neglected my blog. Found our first Geocache. Danced some more. Celebrated 10 years of marriage. Talked about hopes and dreams for the farm and the future. Swam in the ocean. Swam in the dam. Thought a lot about kids and education. Took our caravan on adventures near and far. Found myself again.

Hello! I've missed being here. I'm not sure if anyone is still out there? 
I hope to find the space to be here more frequently this year.

    1. Succinct is my super power! I think I was prompted by that little chat about blogging at the beach yesterday. I'll be keeping an eye out for more of your beautiful words. xo

  4. Hello lovely! Just saw on IG that you'd blogged so thought I'd pop over and say hello. I've only just blogged again for the first time in months too! But I do hope to write and share a bit more often in 2016. We celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary last year too. It sounds like you've had a wonderful year. Good on you for auditioning in a local production and making your dreams happen with the farm etc. Wishing you all a wonderful twelve months ahead xx

  7. I'm a new reader, so I think this is your first post that's popped up in my feed after I added you at some point, and I'm excited to hear more! I've just moved from the city to 40 acres, so I can see why I added you - look forward to reading about 2016 :)
