A whole new decade, can you believe it? I usually love putting together these end of year posts and taking a moment to look back on all my favourite photographs and blog posts from the past year – but this year, I’m really struggling to put into words how I feel about saying goodbye to 2019. The truth is that this year has been a tough one – under the surface anyway – and a few personal disappointments took a good chunk out of it for me. If I’m being completely and totally honest with you, I cannot be happier to see the back of 2019! GOOD RIDDANCE! However, you take the good with the bad, right? And there have been plenty of amazing moments along the way – from visiting the puffins on Skomer Island (finally!), to jetting off to Florida again – my home away from home (including that incredible balcony bathtub)! There have been some amazing events and opportunities, and of course, lots of time spent with my favourite people. And dog! I mean, what would I do without Bungle? 🙂
You can’t win ’em all, right? And this year I’ve grown a lot and learned a lot – about a lot! Enough to take me through into a new decade with a whole new mindset and drive (…even though, when you really think about it – a whole new decade starts every single year in January anyway!). Bring it on, 2020!
