So, I have been a married chick for almost a year, which makes me reflect on the year we have had. For those of you who know me, this won’t be a surprise, on our honeymoon, we started to develop a 5 year plan, you know, where we want to be, what we want to be doing, that kind of thing. I am sure my husband was slightly freaked out by it, I just saw it as planning!
So, where are we a year in? Well, I think I have settled in well, we have managed to move into a place which houses two children (for half the time), two dogs, the two of us and all of my shoes (of which, at last count, was 130 pairs – I know I know). We have also managed to renovate two rooms (my hubby is awesome), go on a family surfing holiday and the husband is headed to University to become a Secondary School teacher – four years full time!
I learnt that I haven’t always been driven, but for some reason ticking things off was important to me this year. I learnt that unless you make a date night, the busyness of life gets away from you, I learnt that having love and happiness is what’s important in this world, I have learnt that being a stepmother, wow, it’s tough (especially to two girls, currently aged 11 and 13), and I have learnt the joy of having an instant and blended family, what more can you ask for.
So, what’s in store for the next year? I dare say we will check out the 5 year plan, see how we are going and get ready for another very cool year of happenings.
I am totally new to this whole blogging thing and so if any of this resonated with you, do let me know, it’s it total crap, also let me know (I don’t get offended easily!)
Be enthusiastic, optimistic and energetic every day!
