As we say goodbye to 2013, I like to recap as I feel it was a big one. The biggest game changer actually happened right at the start - the 11th of Janurary when I broke my ankle.
My first ever broken bone. I had no idea what was ahead of me, actually the day after I was set to photograph a wedding and my first thought was, "Can I still photograph it? Surely I can just hop around" I have to laugh at that delusion running through my head as I lay on the ground in misery. In the weeks to come reality set in and I found I couldn't even live by myself anymore forcing a move back in with my family
So I (well my Mum and family - thanks fam!) moved me out of my apartment in with them and then once I could drive (three months later) I found myself living with Ben. I've always been apprehensive about living with Ben, I thought it might ruin the magic but it's been really delightful :)
Fun things did happen, I got a signed autograph from Tim Burton. People were nice and gave me presents and during my days of inability and lack of mobility I found myself sitting at my computer and starting two new blogs, my Big Things of Oz blog and my Cat Blog both of which have been mega super fun projects.
And I got to hobble around the goldcoast in my moonboot and by april I was back at work being a support worker
I tried my hand at cake making here for my brother's 21st
Grew an appreciation for plants
went to the ekka
went to Singapore
stepped on a rusty nail and received the most painful needle of my life (same foot different injury :p)
got to meet this little fella
and finished on a high with quite possibly my favourite thing of my whole year - a sort of round circle - I finally got to photograph a wedding
What was your favourite thing of 2013? And your plans for the future?
For me it's more happiness, more photography and more adventures!
Thanks to my delightful boyfriend, my family and friends and all my new found blog buddies for all the love, it never goes unnoticed!
