Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016

2015 has been incredible and sad. 3 trips to the other side of the world, more hugs than I can count, dinner table laughter, a burgeoning coffee addiction, ticking off a new continent, many adventures in the UK and overseas to countries I will never be able to spell, a few heartbreaking incidents, discovering new nooks and generally trying to live life to the full.

And, as you read this, New Zealand has counted down & embraced the new year of 2016. We’ll have watched the sun set on an incredible 2015 and we’ll be (probably, ok maybe) watching the sunrise over the horizon of 2016.

Traditionally each year I like to finish with a little roundup of the
year that was. I think we’ll play with the top 15 this time (I did the top 14 last year, 13 in 2013, and 12 in 2012… see where I’m going with this?)
