The Year That Was


I don't really know where to start in trying to sum up 2010. This post really struck a chord with me thismorning. 2010 was a year of highs and lows, but I'd really rather not focus on the lows, so I'm going to just ignore them (I'm actually quite good at avoidance, and see how I just turned a negative into a positive).


I'm not one for making plans or resolutions. I'm more of a 'lets just see what happens' type.

That being said, there is just one thing that I am planning for in 2011, and that is to have more fun.


I'd really like to spend more time just doing the things that I like doing, rather than the things I should be doing. After all, life is way too short to sweat the small stuff!

I love this post. It's so happy, colourful and vibrant. Just like you. Good on you lady! Here's to a brilliant 2011 for us all.
P.S. I want that pink and white polka dot skirt with the lace for myself. Yes I realise it's a kids skirt. And no, I don't care.
P.P.S. I also want that yellow dress with the cherries on it.
P.P.P.S. You ROCK!

Your photo montages have just brightened up a very gloomy morning here - so colourful and vibrant! I think ignoring the lows is how really positive, optimistic people deal with life - and I think that's a really healthy approach that I'm trying to adopt. Wishing you a healthy, happy 2011 packed with fun!

Even with the ups and downs look at all the amazing things you have created in 2010! But here's to a fun filled 2011.......you deserve it!

Zane Wooder said...

The ups and lows is part of life. We all face them. Sometimes I think that the lows actually help us realize what's really important to us.
