On new years eve (in the late afternoon), the husband and I had sat down on the patio (feet in the sand) at the very restaurant where we were married to enjoy a beverage,
**note: above – those are actually pictures from my wedding**
It was the best way to reflect on the year we just had and make a plan for the year ahead.
Times like this are why I put blogging on hold and just live.
I never really fully appreciated the saying, “I have no time,” until I felt like it was all I could say. Between cramming for exams and packing to leave on vacation for a couple of weeks, I could barely fit in anything else…and I didn’t mind. It was very fitting for the end of the year – just enjoy my time and what I was doing in that moment.
Now that it’s a new year, I have new focuses and plans, and blogging is definitely in there. I like being busy, but I’m ok with having a bit of time – especially to get a post in! 😉
I hope that 2012 is a great year for everyone. I have a feeling it will be the best year yet.
I feel like I have so much to share, but for now I’d like to finish with a collection of photos from my cruise with my husband and his family and also some from our travels around Florida (the husband and I were Floridian junkies – we went from Fort Lauderdale to Sarasota to Orlando to Jacksonville, and then hit some of those spots again!)
My 2011 ending
This is what I said on twitter not too long ago:
I’M GOING ON A CRUISE NEXT MONTH!!!!
There we go…that feels better (my excitement is still bubbling though)!
There had been talk of a cruise in the works for a while with the hubby’s family, but we were never quite sure when it would work out. I honestly thought I wouldn’t be able to make it at all because of exams (originally when talk of the cruise came up, it was before I was in school and knew my schedule).
But, thankfully, the fam has worked it all around and I’m able to go now. My plan definitely was to get the heck outta Canada as soon as I wrote that last exam, anyways, but now with good reason 😉
Below is our voyage aka what I will count down to everyday now.
Our cruise port is in Florida, and here’s what I have to look forward to…
First stop: Turks and Caicos
I am beyond excited (and pretty embarrassed at how white my skin is and how much more white it will be by the time I get on this ship!). Can someone just fast forward through time (and write my exams for me:)), so I can get on this cruise?!?
Sure is a HAPPY FRIDAY!
Question of the day: Do you have any travel plans this winter? And if so, where?!
