Well, it’s New Year’s Eve and 2011 will come to an end tonight. It’s been a fast, eventful year and one that has brought lots of happiness.
My two beautiful friends Candice and Nicki gave birth to two even more beautiful daughters, Carmen (who I am Godmother to) and Freya. It’s hard to express how much love I feel for them – these girls are the sisters I never had so I love them, and therefore love their families and beautiful babies as much. They are very special to me.
My other very special “sister” finally got her a maaaan! Clarabell, if you are up the aisle before me, we’re going to have problems! I don’t mean it, you know that, and I hope that you and Mr B are happy together always. Shotgun Chief Bridesmaid.
2011 also brought me a paid, freelance writing gig for an international fashion magazine – long awaited! Here’s to 2012 when it’s published. Fingers crossed I haven’t jinxed it. I also found myself with a new 9-5. You might call it a promotion, so here’s to success!
2011 also brought me some new friends: Karen, Claire and Stephanie, as well as Tweeps Molly, Mark, Sam, Jayne, Shelly, and many, many more who are all lovely, lovely people.
I think that 2011 has been a good year for me, and I hope it has been for you too. I have recognised what I want in life but also what is important: LOVE. May 2012 bring more love, happiness and good health, to one and all. Happy New Year.
