The little things...

Going to see your team play live with your dad and watching them take a 3-0 victory from a crucial match.

The little things...




Walking in fresh snow.






Experimenting with nail polish.
Braving red lipstick.

I think I might make "The little things.." a regular post on this blog - to celebrate those little things that make life more cheerful.

Liebster blog award

A big thank you to meimeisays for giving me this award!


This award is passed on through the blogging community for bloggers with under 200 GFC followers, helping to promote their blog. The rules are;

11 facts about me

Excitement

I have some fabulous news to share with you. Sooner than I expected, 'move out' can be ticked off my list of goals for 2013. After years of longing for my own space, I finally have it. It's such a beautiful feeling; prayers have been answered and a weight has been lifted.

It's going to take a week or two to get my little flat ready to be permanently lived in and money is going to become rather tight, but I am so excited about this new adventure! I can't wait to make this place my own. Look out for updates coming up on the blog!
