A late bloomer in life, it did take me a while to get to know myself. My likes and dislikes, my guilty pleasures, my opinions, my dress style, my weaknesses and my strengths. And most important of all, I learned to not be ashamed of any of it. I think 2 things were the major cataclysms for all of this.
My father passing away 3 years ago is one of them, a big one. Something like this gives perspective and, as cliché as this may sound, it did make me evaluate my life in a huge way.
The second thing is that I met the love of my life nearly 2 years ago. My now husband came into my life like this amazing ray of sunshine and there has not been a day when my life has not been warmed by him.
So it is in the spirit of this new year of 2012 and all the good things to come that I have created this blog. I wish to share all of those moments, big or small, important or insignificant, all of it. All the bits of nice in our lives. They may sometimes be preceded or accompanied with a little bit of moan; life is, as we all know, not perfect. The important thing is to try our best to make it as good as we can.
I hope you enjoy this blog. It is not much, I do not have amazing pictures or mind-blowing concepts, I will not tell you every week of a new nail varnish or where to buy amazing clothing. What you will get is a little glimpses of a life and my journey towards making it as good as possible.
