Well, here we are, 2016. I still can't believe it, we have accomplished another year, I cannot believe 2 years has passed since I have moved back to Ottawa. Obviously a huge part of me really feels like I have been here for centuries (far, far too long), and another part of me actually can't grasp how quick it's all passed. I honestly can't tell you how fast the time has flown from September to now, it's crazy!

I did take sometime off blogging over some parts of the holiday period, still posted on Instagram, and have not yet officially posted in 2016 (until right now). I have never been one to make New Years resolutions because I don't keep them, I don't care for them, and quite honestly if I wanted to do any of these I could begin any day of the bloody year. I can admit it, and so should you. Your list probably won't happen, just saying.
I took some time to think of certain things I really do want in life, things I may have put on the back burner or thought that they had become unattainable. I also feel like in 2016, I want to take care of myself more because if you don't do it no one else will... I am not only talking about health wise but also; mental, physically, socially and of course pampering myself from time to time. I have made a small list of things I would like to accomplish in 2016, my goal is to achieve at least 2 of them.
I have never given much thought into what new year's could bring, they've just come and gone. I'd like to see things differently, and really indulge fully in new experiences, expanding my knowledge, and diving into the unknown to some extent!
