It’s well past the midway point of January, but I’m posting my 2018 reflections and gratitude anyway. Better late than never, and I finally have the headspace to translate the chicken scratches from my notebook.
Looking back on 2018, I achieved some of my goals, had to put others on hold, and for the most part, managed to field any challenges with will and grace. (P.S. The reboot is amazing, you need to watch it.) Most importantly, I had fun. In no particular order, these are my favourite things about 2018.
I’ve just finished packing my suitcase for our trip to Japan (more on that to come later), and now, I sit here with a nice glass of Pinot Noir and a glutenous pizza, watching Olympic highlights. (Hooray, Patrick Chan!) I’m on my own tonight as Miley Cyrus decided to start her tour in Vancouver. On Valentine’s Day. Which means I haven’t really seen Sean for the last few days as he’s been rigging the setup. We leave bright early for the airport tomorrow so lack of sleep will be the nice way to describe my husband tomorrow. (Tee-hee.)
Yesterday was our “togetherversary” (six years!), and while I made flourless chocolate cake, and he happened to be home earlier than scheduled (always a happy surprise), we actually had our anniversary/quasi-Valentine’s Day fun a couple weeks ago.
It’s nice to celebrate things day of, but schedules get crazy. Knowing this would happen, we went to Salt Spring Island for a romantic weekend at a lovely house called Juniper Cottage at the beginning of February. I’ll write about it another day (I am behind in uploading photos) but you should check it out. AMAZING spot.
Whether you’re single, apart from your significant other for some reason, or lucky enough to have them around today for some romance, love isn’t just about one day in a year. It’s about love, every day, for yourself, and those dear to you. Sappy, I know. And with that, cheers and Happy Valentine’s Day!
