2017 was one of the busiest years of my life, I didn’t set myself any goals or resolutions but I can safely say it has been the most incredible, educational, challenging, rewarding year so far.
Best moments of 2017 (chronologically);
– Ringing in the New Year in Australia!
– Doing the Great Ocean Road in one day.
– 1,000 Steps Walk.
– Baby Shower in Dublin.
– My birthday at Arundel Castle
– Addams Family Musical at nine months pregnant.
– Jellybean being born – the big one!
– Handing in my dissertation for my Masters degree.
– Jellybean learning to smile, giggle, roll… etc
– My Graduation.
It has been an incredible year with a couple lows but huge highs. Becoming a mother has been life changing and at times incredibly difficult, but I can’t imagine not having my little girl. Even through the sleepless nights, tough days and fussy stages, I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m excited to see what the next year brings, to watch her develop and become even more aware of the world around her.
It may seem a little negative to say this year won’t live up to last year, but I don’t plan on getting married until 2019 and I definitely don’t plan on getting pregnant again just yet! I’ve no resolutions for this year but to continue trying my best to be a good mother to my little one, taking care of myself, keeping social and staying active. Well maybe one resolution – learn to accept my new body and be proud of what it’s achieved.
So 2018, let’s be having you, you’ve a heck of a year to compete with!
