2012 End + 2013 Beginnings

As I sit here munching away on a brekkie bowl of Coyo yoghurt, acai, walnuts and buckini muesli, looking out at the sunny day it has already bloomed into in Cairns... I feel inspired to (finally) write this post.

It's been over a month since I last posted and as much as I would have loved to keep in touch more, well Summer, Xmas, New Years and 5 weeks on the road all came first. But now I'm back, have begun my year full swing (with assessments and an exam in there as well), back to work, trying to find a new place to call home - again - (minor stress there) OUR NEW HOME HAS JUST BEEN CONFIRMED!!! now to begin moving in!!! That's the fun part tho and I am so excited! College begins in a couple of weeks, and I've also been hugely excited about a few other things in the pipeline but I'm struggling a little finding the time to put my focus there at the minute, so fingers crossed I'll get my schedule sorted a little better when I've got a place to call home now I've got a place to call home :)

So since we last spoke, Brock and I have been from

Cairns to Sydney to Cairns
and everywhere in between

We left here December 13th and got back January 20th. In that time we swam in oceans and rivers, slept under the stars at Prosepine and Hervey Bay, ate at my favourite cafe in Brissie, had amazing smoothies in Byron, visited my mum and step-dad twice, met new born babies of friends, stayed with Brock's 94yr old nan in Alstonville, picnic'd in Rockhampden, celebrated Christmas with four separate food feasts across Sydney and to Bowral, laughed with family, spent New Years with our best friends in Bondi,  visited the Hunter Valley and had a little too much vino, trained, ran, drank way too much coffee, tried to catch up on what seemed like never-ending-lost-sleep, spent 2weeks on the Sunshine Coast with mum, and the rest of the time in our little Toyota Corolla hatch back - filled to the seams with clothes, boxes, yoga mats, water bottles, food snacks, my teddy bear, sleeping bags, a (busted) tent, (then) a new tent, and loads more... driving the east coast of this beautiful country of ours, tunes pumped, horrible singing voices on... with no air-con. Yep. From Cairns to Sydney and back again - no air-con. We had a ball!

But like I said, we're back in Cairns now where it's freakin hot and deliciously sunny! We were very lucky getting here when we did as if were a week later we would have potentially got stuck with bushfires somewhere, definitely been bogged in by floods somewhere else, and quite possibly have experienced our first cyclone - crazy country of ours.

I've got a lot of ideas for my little blog site this year as well so little by little you might be catching some of those changes. As for my posts - they're usually varied as to what I write about but please email me or let me know on the Facebook page, if there is anything you would like to see. I will be sure to inform you all of how my own health issues are going as well - hair mineral analysis results are back today! Bloods have come in also. I'm back seeing my TCM guy, as well as an osteo and physio for other issues I've got going on, and have begun with a few other little things that I'm loving also.

Until next time,

Peace and Love

The start of 2013

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, New Years and holiday break.

I wanted to touch base real quick to let you all know I'm still alive and kicking; I haven't posted in over a month for so many reasons but next week I will be posting a great big post on everything that's been going on, where I've been, what I've been up too, and what's ahead for 2013.

I can't wait to share it with you!
