The End of 2016

Wow, here we are staring down at the end of 2016 and into the beginning of 2017. 2016 has been a mixed bag of a year and this last week in particular has brought a string of curve balls that we could definitely have done without.  I cant wait to see what 2017 has in store but one thing I know for sure is that there is going to be change, lots of change.

My word for 2017 is going to be 'embrace' and it isn't just a word but an action and a change of attitude. Since I have become chunkier I have stopped doing certain things like swimming at hot pools, but I have bought some swimwear and I am embracing who I am now and not letting things stop me from enjoying experiences and making memories with my family. I am embracing opportunities and where they may take me, I am not letting fear rob me from experiences, I still have a lot that I want to do and accomplish

We had a lovely Christmas with our family and created many memories, we did some things the same and changed up other things.

Pavlova that my 2 3/4 yo granddaughter and I made for Christmas, definitely one of the best yet.

Take care everyone, happy stitching and we will see you on the other side of 2016.
