2012 - What a Year!

After more than a week of 2013, it's time to look back at what was.  From a personal point-of-view (rather than a crafty one), 2012 was a HUGE year for me.  Mr C and I faced it all - from the amazing to the downright ordinary.  Here's a sneak peak of just some of what happened in our world...

I turned 30!  Thanks to all my beautiful friends and family who helped me celebrate - with an awesome afternoon at the local croquet club.  Fun!

Typical goofy photo of me.  Cake anyone?

We went to Bali, with Mr C's brother and his wife, and had some awesome adventures.

All set to try some white-water rafting.

We got engaged!

We got a dog, our beloved (yet slightly naughty) Kira.

I know nothing...

We moved house (and painted and re-did the kitchen and... and... and...)

We had two pregnancies; two miscarriages; two heartbreaks.

I organised our second brewery and winery tour in the lovely Swan Valley.  Another fabulous day with friends.

We had Christmas with the "in-laws" and suffered through the unbelievable heat-wave.

AND...  I had a wonderful 12 months crafting away, trying new things, meeting new people and generally loving Blogland.  So thank you to everyone (!!!) for helping to make 2012 a year to remember.
