2012 - A Year in Review

2012 has been a year of ups and downs for us, a year of hopes and disappointments  Having said that I have a strange feeling that 2013 will be a big year for us. I'm hoping that it will be the year that we finally get our permanent residence in Australia! But for now lets look back over 2012.

This year we went to:
♥ Legally Blonde
♥ The Fifties Fair
♥ 34b Burlesque's 7th Birthday and Last Ever Show!
♥ The Village People
♥ Sculptures by Sea
♥ Pillow Talk at the State Theatre
♥ The Ruby Reviews 5th Birthday
♥ The Love Vintage Show
♥ The Sydney Showboat

We traveled to:
♥ The blue Mountains for a weekend away for our first wedding anniversary and again on a day trip with the Hubby's Dad
♥ Canberra for a weekend visiting the capital with the Hubby's Dad and his friend

We took day trips to:
♥ Kiama
♥ Berry
♥ Bowral 
♥ The Hunter Valley

The hubby and I both changed jobs (him twice and me once) so now I am not working and he is at a place where he is really happy and with any luck 2013 might be the year that we get our own business. I celebrated my 28th birthday with a fab day out in the city and the hubby celebrated his 33rd birthday in style with a diner at Rockpool.

I changed my appearance many times with multiple different hairstyles throughout the year before deciding in the last few weeks to grow it back long!

As for the blog well Emma aime got its first sponsor - the lovely Lady K Loves!
