I’ve actually been adding to this post since the 8th February in a bid to have a place where I could have a visual reminder of all we had done – even the mundane stuff. What follows is a mega photo dump of 2014.
January : Lot’s of beach days and general fun. Well, as much fun as you can have whilst on fertility meds!
February : Little Man had a love of watermelon, water play and I got more into my photography.
March : My folks visited and we held Little Man’s first birthday party. I had a chemical pregnancy and we made the decision to try and conceive until April.
April : I enjoy the cooler weather and increased my neighbourhood walks. I also found out I was pregnant with Yogi.
May : An awesome trip to New Zealand started the month and a miscarriage sadly ended it.
June : I remember that the beach was our therapy. I launched my photo blog, Amongst the Pineapples, to help as a distraction.
July : We visited The Big Pineapple zoo and spent most of the month outdoors.
August : I have little recollection of this month but I remember the box and basket play! The photo of me (top right) was taken during that weekend. I wanted to capture the moment for some reason. I think to remember – not the horror of what we were going through, but the time I spent with Peanut. In that picture I was pregnant and it was worth capturing.
September : We started our garden renovations and I didn’t really use my camera too much. Mainly just for dinosaur shorts!
October : I started cramming for my university exam and work continued on our garden renovations.
November : My folks visited again and we had the best month ever. A trip to Byron Bay, Little Mans first haircut (by yours truly) and a traditional English roast dinner cooked by my parents to celebrate an early Christmas together.
December : I passed my exam and became genuinely excited for Christmas in the sun. We had a great day with family and I remain more than thankful for all of my family and friends – near and far.
I also received four peer awards of which I am extremely proud and grateful for each nomination.
I hope you can look back at your 2014 with a smile on your face. As most of you will know, it’s been a particularly tough year for us which I’ll address in my next post (sounds fun, doesn’t it?). There’s been other stuff going on which I couldn’t/didn’t write about during the time but needless to say, Hubby and I are both looking forward to starting 2015. It is a beautiful symbol of hope for us and I want to take this opportunity to wish you a year of health, happiness and love.
