Hello 2013!

Yes! We are back from our first family holiday unscathed, bade 2012 farewell... and are raring to go for a hopefully fantastic 2013!

More on our holiday in another post. For now, I just want to reflect on some of the joys that 2012 has brought me. 

1. We welcomed our first born. We waited a long time for him, and he was more than we can ask for.

2. Our families were not only blessed with the arrival of Jonas. But Jonas' paternal and maternal cousins both followed shortly after. :)

3. I have been able to revive UrbanNook again! I have been making jewellery for UrbanNook on and off, and of course being a FTWM now makes it more difficult to find time for this interest. Hence, to be able to complete all orders for Christmas, on top of my day job and as a mother 24/7... I am certainly quite pleased with myself. More jobs for UrbanNook in the new year, and I can't wait! 

4. I am thankful to have found a group of Mummies, the SMB. While, admittedly, I have not been very active in the group, but while I have the time, I do try to catch up on what's been going on with these like-minded ladies...and I would say, I have learnt a great deal from them. I hope I will be able to find more time in the coming year, to contribute a little more to this group. 

5. We made it for our first family holiday. Very thankful for an easy to handle baby, that made our first family trip quite an enjoyable one. It was a good break for us from work, and more importantly, we were able to spend quality time as a family without distractions such as Xbox and the likes. 

With these, we are welcoming 2013 with open arms. We made some big decisions at the close of 2012 which will define how our new year will be like. It's going to be busy for sure, and we do hope it will be as exciting as we anticipate it to be. 

So, here we are, wishing each and everyone of you a very Happy 2013!

And, we are giving a big shout "HELLO!" to all our readers! We want to see more of you, the very same way you have been encouraging me on this space of ours!
