Happy New Year everyone! I know I’m a day late on the year-end wrap-up, but really, after 2 months of radio silence, one day late isn’t so bad. Here we go:
Looking back — This year (last year!) was, well, pretty awesome. M and I both enjoy our jobs, have a cozy house, and got to go lots of cool places. We visited the Galapagos and Machu Picchu (did I fail to mention that? We’re a little behind here) and hosted visits by two great friends and my family. M’s family was all together for Christmas and now we’re enjoying a lazy long weekend at home. I am trying out my new crock pot! Oh, the excitement. Bet you never thought living overseas could be so … suburban.
This year, Shomi enjoyed life in the lap of luxury, with a nanny AND a dog walker.
Looking forward — 2012 will be another year of change! We’re headed back to Washington in July/August and are SUPER looking forward to life with Starbucks and Target and Chipotle. Mmmmm. And, of course, hoping to cross paths with friends we haven’t seen in a while! We’re hoping to find a house in Washington and to get “settled” … at least for a couple years. Moving again means M will have to find a new job, never a fun process but hopefully a new opportunity. Shomi really gets the bum end of all this, since her days with the dog walker will be over. But back home you can take your dog to the pet store and she can pick out her own toys! So that almost evens things out.
Here comes the obligatory year in photos!
Hope you all had a terrific year, a fun-filled New Year, and another great year ahead. What are your plans for 2012??
