What a year you have been!! You have been a year of such raw emotion…
I started the year with a 60km walk to help end woman’s cancer on behalf of Lisa that challenged me both mentally and physically..
The first four months of the year saw us celebrate the festives and lead up to one of the most magical days of our lives. Our wedding!!! It was more then I could have ever imagined and saying I do between the laughs and the tears was the best moment ever!! We jetted off to Bali to spend 8 nights in pure bliss celebrating our honeymoon , Brendan’s 30th and a beautiful friends wedding !! We were in such a loved filled bubble..
On our return you quickly popped our loved filled bubble and we came crashing down to the reality of having to say good bye to one of the most amazing strong willed and determined women we knew.What followed that was a journey of a different kind of raw emotion what got us through was not only the love and support Brendan and I have for each other but also our little man his smile and passion for life and ability to sense when a hug or kiss is needed has been precious. We know that he can still see Lisa as every now and then he will go to the fridge and point to Lisa’s picture and say nan nan as much as it break our heart it also fills it!!
We have had many magical moments with our little man over the year and we were blessed to find out that we would be adding to our pack in April next year!! You saw me cross a bucket list item off my list when I surprised Brendan with a trip to the MCG for the AFL grand final. I took on full time work in a challenging environment with a toddler and being pregnant and I survived and better still at the end of it I loved it!! We finished the year off on a high with a bestie getting engaged and Cooper having the most incredible Christmas.
2016 we are without a doubt ready to see what you have installed for us. We know it is going to be an amazing year and a new chapter especially when our family of three become four I’m excited to see the love Cooper will develop for his new little brother.. 2016 you are about us as a family and also about paying it forward I am looking forward to consciously being a better person to those around me and doing my bit of random acts of kindness to bring joy to those around me and in need.
2016 we are ready for you!!!
