A year in review...

Thanks for your well wishes my friend, I am feeling better today!


2013 ended in the best possible way for our family, I thought I'll sit down do a review for what's happened in my life this year!

Blogging life

I had 240 post in 2013
It is not a lot compared to year 2011, it was 356 posts that year.
Has been blogging for more than 4 years.
The other blogs I managed City Crafter Challenge Blog turned 3 in April, 2013
And in June 2013, Our Beautiful World was born

made 94 cards 

48 layouts 

and 8 + 2 mini albums

(plus 2 is because my 2013 year book and december daily is still in the making, hope I can finish them in 2014! LOL!)


Family and friends

Blessed that I get to see my children a few times this year, when they come home to me (and Papi...)

Blessed to be able to traveled to Europe with Dolce alone, just mother and daughter, went to Grafing, Rosenheim, Munich, Vienna and Prague, as the kids get older, opportunity like that is hard to come by

Blessed to see family back home in Singapore

and friends too, friends that I grew up with. 

not only in Singapore, but in Grafing, Germany as well



Truly blessed to be able to travel to many places in 2013, especially with the guy that I want to grow old with

to new places like Chiang Mai, Rosenheim, Grafing, Vienna, Prague and Denver for the first time, and old places that I love so much like San Francisco, San Diego, Sedona, Aspen, Zion National Park, Bangkok, Singapore, Paris and of course NYC. See post and pictures HERE.



And here's the movies I watched in 2013

- Jack Reacher
- Zero Dark Thirty

- Identity Thief

 - OZ, the great and powerful

- The Croods
- Olympus has fallen

- The Great Getsby
-Despicable Me 2

- The book theif
- Savings Mr Banks

as you can tell, not a very big movie goer right?



Last but not least, blessed to have this little JOY came into our life September 14

that was then

and this is now

he sure grew! just 2 more weeks, he is going to be an adult, not puppy anymore,  but I think he is just as cute, don't you think?

especially when he is all so focus trying to read and learn, LOL!

Looking back reminds me what a blessed life I have

I am wishing the same for you, my friend...

2013 is over and a new year is waiting for you to create

no matter what you do, where you live

Have an amazing journey in 2014!!!!!!
