It's been a year

A year ago yesterday, I had just started my new job back here in Wellington after being away for two years. Man does time fly or what! Although I'm well and truly settled into my job and my life in Hawke's Bay/Wairarapa seems a lifetime ago, I still can't believe it's been a year since I came back. It came around so quick. It's been quite a year though. I've moved in with the love of my life, got engaged to the love of my life, written an entire novel, started a bunch of other writing projects, started planning an overseas trip and a wedding and a future.

What I love about being back:
Being able to plan a solid future with Joshua
Reconnecting with old girlfriends and realising that no matter how little you see each other and how much you've neglected them by being away, they still welcome you back with open arms
Having a place to call home
Becoming real grownups who buy appliances and stuff - we bought a brand new fridge and we're so excited about it!
Rediscovering my hometown/city and appreciating how amazing it is more than I used to

And the year ahead? Oh lordy it's going to be a biggie. The list is approximately a mile long, but it's an exciting list that I can't yet fully share because nothing is set in stone just yet.
It's exhilarating, and a little scary when you have a fair idea of where you're going to be in a year's time and you know it's going to be completely different to what your life is like now. I'm excited! Bring it on life!

Have a lovely weekend peeps xo
