Merry Christmas and Thank You – You Make My Life Sweet!

Merry Christmas to all my lovely readers! I hope your December has been, and will continue to be, filled with goodness, fun times, happiness and love. I wanted to take a little moment to THANK YOU for supporting me this year, and the past two years – you make my life sweet! I appreciate your voices, your comments, your engagement on my social channels and I adore every one of you.

This year has been a great one, I have pushed and challenged myself, laughed till I cried, had way too many cheese platters and wines with my girlfriends and spent quality time with my family. I was promoted at work and found out I will be heading to New York next year to work and travel for a few weeks (or months!). By far the best thing to happen to me this year though was becoming an aunty for the first time, little Lyla Evie is the cutest girl in the whole world and I love her with my whole aunty heart!

I hope you all look back on 2015 and find things you can smile at, laugh at and can be proud of. If 2015 was a tough or testing year for you I hope as the months roll into 2016 they become a billion times better.

Thank you all again for popping over to read my posts from time to time, I truly appreciative your support!

Merry Christmas and have the very, very best New Year!

PS – Here are some photos of a recent family get-together (Santa was very naughty this year!)
