I can’t start this post without it sounding cliched in some way, so you’ll just have to forgive me. Can you believe that we’ve just finished another year? We are already three days into 2018 and I am still recovering from the end of 2017!
It’s hard to summarise a year eloquently. Last year felt like a marvellous-some-of-the-time mystery tour. It was the year that we lost my dear Grandad, one heck of a gentleman and a truly inspirational Grand-daddy. A year where we gained a nephew, little Jensen burst onto the scene eight weeks early. It was a year of professional development, with new qualifications and new challenges at work. It was a year of adventures with travelling both in the UK and abroad. It was a year of ups and downs, tiredness and energy. But overall it was one of fun, friendships and memories. Oh and did I mention our engagement?!
The song ‘Seasons of Love’, from the musical RENT, is one of my favourites. It quite neatly sings about how it is so hard to sum up a year.
In cups of coffee?
In inches, in miles, in laughter, in strife?
In five hundred twenty five thousand six hundred minutes.
How do you measure a year in a life?
One of the ways I love to remember my year is flicking back through photos so here is a slightly tongue in cheek way of looking at my year through my favourite snaps.
A year of Sunrises…
A year of Sunsets…
A year of flowers…
A year of baking…
A year of beautiful places…
A year of great food…
A year of interiors
A year of gardens
And…a year of front doors!
