Hi, Courtney here! My 2015 was a rollercoaster ride filled with many road trips, making new friends, working a lot, and a few mishaps. I started the year with a fun trip to NYC visiting friends and enjoying the city for the first time with Feng. I love visiting NYC, where every corner is so photogenic but I gotta say, I really don't miss the cold!
After I came back from NYC, I caught something that took 3 doctors and 10 vials of blood to say that it was some kind of viral infection. I was bed ridden for 2 months and eventually my body was able to fight it. April rolled around and I took a quick trip to San Diego with my parents.
Then my sisters came to visit LA for a lovely sister's trip along the coast of California.
As my day job got more busy, the blog got more busy, bringing you guys some fun collaborations.
To finish off the year, I sprained my ankle and was out for 5 weeks but still went to a few weddings.
I travelled home for Christmas with crutches and skipped all the long holiday lines at the airport. Wooo! My mom took me to see a Chinese doctor who does "physiotherapy", where they rub the swollen parts and force you to walk. It was so painful but I'm walking again!
I find that it’s always good to recap the happenings from the year to truly appreciate all the wonderful experiences. I definitely lose myself in the daily grind and forget how much I did in just one year. This one has been nothing short of amazing and I’m so grateful! There were a lot of firsts for me...
First time settling into my own home and furnishing it
First time to Italy
First Yeh sisters trip EVER where we celebrated Trish's birthday in style
First Business Trip to LA :) Working late together on a Friday made working late not so bad
First time skiing with the hubs
First time in Ottawa to see our nephew and their dog Onyx
Last but not least, our first time rescuing a dog. Introducing for the very first time, our new family member - Joey!
Have a HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
Another busy year done and feeling very blessed as I look back on everything that has happened in 2015. While my life is currently dominated by the kids, I was lucky enough to steal away for a few getaways this year, and especially enjoyed my trip with the sisters (our first trip with just the three of us!) and the Euro trip with Ed. Looking forward to another year of adventures (apparently, I am currently parenting a “threenager” (see this post - so true) and a "terrible two”, so that in itself is an adventure!) and new experiences!
Celebrated my birthday in LA with my sisters! Felt so young again :D
Trip with Ed to the UK and Amsterdam - our favourite place was Edinburgh and we were lucky enough to catch the Fringe Festival while we were there!
Another place we really enjoyed visiting was Bath in England
Attended six destination weddings this year! Here's Ed and I as groomsman and bridesmaid at Celeste and Oscar’s wedding in Phuket, Thailand
Survived another year with the two rugrats!
Thank you everyone for following and supporting our adventures! Hope you all had a wonderful 2015 and see you in 2016! Happy New Year! :)
