2011 – a year in review

We’re already a month into 2012 and I’m thinking back over the past year. 2011 was an incredible year for us. It sped by, it was packed full, it was full of highs, lows and thousands of wonderfully happy moments.

To be honest, the year didn’t begin on the 1st January – for us it began in October 2010 when an adorable baby girl arrived in our lives. Not content to stay in my (enormous) tummy a moment longer she appeared three weeks early, more perfect and cuddly than we could ever have imagined. I fully intended to get back to blogging during my maternity leave but instead spent my time gazing at our little girl, playing, walking, gardening, pinning, photography, cooking, crafting, reading, and enjoying every second of being a parent. Predictably, given my love of photography, she is probably the most photographed baby in the world and on her first birthday I completed my first 365project – a photo every day for her first year.

Since returning to work a few months ago I’ve continued the photo project while reminding my brain just how to code, and refrain from telling my colleagues that cups of tea are “hot – don’t touch”. Now we’re settled into a happy routine balancing work, nursery, family, friends and time at home I think it’s time to get back to blogging, etsy, and much more.

My new little niece Gwen Ruth was born on Sunday, weighing 7lbs 12oz. She’s adorable and has proved herself to be an angelic new baby. This lovely print by Freya Art came to mind this morning as I was thinking of my sister and her newly expanded family.
