While everyone else on our radar is having a normal Sunday evening, Scott & I are gearing up for New Years Eve here in New Zealand. By “gearing up”, I mean it’s already 8:35pm, and we just got back from doing shuttle runs in Victoria Park, about 10 minutes from our house. We still need to shower and eat dinner, and no champagne corks have been popped. Yet.
Anyways, I feel like trying to sum up the most poignant moments of our 2012 would be just silly. It’s pretty obvious, and really, most of it is all chronicled in this journal of mine anyways. But to state the obvious:
We said goodbye (for now) to family and friends, we said farewell to my amazing and inspirational grandfather, we quit our jobs, rented out our house, sold our cars, and moved to Christchurch, New Zealand. Everything that happened before Fall 2012 just seems like a blur, most of which was preparing for the big move.
So, we’re here! We’re getting ready to enjoy Cassels & Sons Brewery’s NYE party, and we’re oh so excited about everything to come in 2013. Tomorrow we’re starting the year off right with a biking trip to Hanmer Springs! …I will not leave without my shoes.
