LG... Life's Good
The past couple of weeks have been fun-filled being summertime here in Australia. Christmas has come and gone, and so has 2011. I had a brilliant year and I'm even more excited about what 2012 will bring. Although, I couldn't help but notice the amount of people that were happy to see the back of 2011. It seemed to be quite a heavy year for many... I hope that you weren't one of them and can focus on the good that came out of your year that's past!
One of the many reasons I feel so blessed in life is my incredible group of girlfriends. Every Christmas it's tradition that we all get together for a special dinner either on Christmas Eve or a day or two beforehand. This year we had it at one of the girl's houses on her rooftop balcony in Port Melbourne, right by the beach with a stunning view of the city. The weather was perfect and the company was even better, the feast was amazing and the punch was flowing a little too easily! The ideal ingredients for a great night
Christmas Day is then spent with my beautiful family. It's just a small one as I was born in Ireland, so all of my extended family is over there! Although in recent years the family has almost doubled thanks to my brother "planting his seed"!! Another special reason that I love Christmas Day is because it's my boyfriend's birthday! He's a Christmas Angel The sucky part was that we were over 8,000 miles apart! I had no idea that the Australian government were so strict with issuing visas to Latin Americans. We've been waiting over four months for Angel's visa to get approved and he FINALLY received it today!! What a build up! So he will make it here in time for Aussie Millions! Whoohooo! His absence didn't stop my family celebrating his birthday Down Under though
NYE was during a scorcher of a weekend with a quiet BBQ on the same balcony as the Girl's Christmas Dinner where we had the best view of the midnight fireworks! I've never seen Melbourne look so stunning as it did when the fireworks were going. Check it out in the following video, although it's nothing like the real thing! Happy New Year!!!
