Days Go By

I was inspired this morning by a post from Carly at Extremely Hyper - because, as she wrote, it's pretty crazy how fast this year has disappeared so far. I've been keeping track of this year in the form of a photo a day (you can see the set here) and it's been interesting to see how much has happened.

January saw us move into our new home in Sydney - our very sweet apartment that we'll be renting until further notice. It's not grand, it's not in a great location, but it's our home. For now, at least!

February was when I found my current teaching position, with thanks to the fates. As much as I'm drowning in report cards and exhaustion from my 6 & 7 year olds, I absolutely adore it.
March went by in a flash! I was busy with school work, and celebrated my bridal shower with some of my best girlfriends. Jase and I also took part in an engagement photoshoot, which was great fun! Our wedding RSVP's began trickling in here, which brought lots of warm fuzzies & the occasional bouts of disappointment.
April brought sickness, a fair bit of it too. I went to hospital for the first time in my life, suffered from two bouts of gastro & colitis, and got knocked around by a pretty rotten cold.
May marked the beginning of assessment season at school - meaning report comments needed to be written, pronto! It's also been the month of stress, lots of wedding decisions, payments and deadlines have loomed, and I've been struggling to keep on top of it all.
And June? Well, June is the month I've been looking forward to now for almost two years. In June, just two short weekends away, I will marry my best friend.

This year really has gone by in the blink of an eye. A little scary how fast, actually! I'm so happy for you that things have come along so well with the wedding, and can't wait to share in it through the magic of the blogosphere :)

arrrgh i can't believe you're going to be married soon!! june is my birthday month so it's going to be a great month for both of us [though i'm in denial about the age i'm turning!].

i remember when you were sick in april - it's scary when you become really ill.

Yay! I honestly cannot believe how quickly the year has gone.

It's very scary. I think twentytwelve will be here before we know it.

Sounds like you've had a wonderful year, besides the hospital drama!
