Unlike past years, I don’t want this round-up to be too text heavy, so here is 2013 in pictures with relevant links to stories when appropriate.
May: I surprised my niece (who lives in another state) by showing up for a few days to help her celebrate her confirmation. She was so delighted, it was well worth the trip. Canberra also had it’s first ‘fashion week’ of sorts, and it during this time that I properly discovered Canberra fashion and met designers that became very good friends.
June: I’ve enjoyed blogging so much that this year I invested in my blog a lot more by attending blogging events. One of my favourite Australian blogging communities is Blog Society, based in Sydney.
June was also the first time we had a family holiday. We went to Cooma and Perisher. Four adults and three children and lots of cherished memories. I wrote this post on how I went on holiday and didn’t Instagram during this trip.
July: I turned 27 and it was the best birthday ever! I’ve been surrounded by family, a loving husband and the most amazing girl friends a girl could ever ask for.
August: Once my thesis was pretty much done we decided to go on holiday. We travelled around Fiji for a while, then made a trip to Queenscliff, Australia and then to Melbourne for the annual Alola charity event.
