Today marked exactly one year since we moved across town to live a different life.
A more caffeinated life:
A more explorative life:
A more beach-y life:
And definitely, a more sunset-y one:
It has been an amazing year, and here’s hoping it only gets better.
It started out as a dream, progressed into a waking nightmare as we dealt with moving, unpacking, and adjusting to life in a older house, with things going wrong, no time for ourselves, and endless renovations/to-dos/life changes.
Once that spell was over (and boy was it a LONG one) things went on the improve, bit by bit.
A year later, we can never, EVER look back. We knew, even in those most difficult of days, trying of times and curse-filled moments, that we had made the best decision for US.
And aside from all of the above pros of moving, the other major one has been the closer proximity to most of our family.
So today baby girl was that touch closer in distance to her third cousin, to attend her 4th birthday:
(Yes they are wearing the same skirt, it was totally not intended yet so cool when we realised they were twinsies. I CAN’T EVEN).
And then later we made an impromptu visit to my sister’s place , something we never used to do, but a favourite new past-time that is becoming more and more common, from both sides.
(Baby girl and her Aunty making coffees 😉 )
And suddenly, there are so many beautiful reasons to be happy today. Happy for our move. Happy for this 1st Anniversary. Happy for Life.
