See Ya, 2015!

January 1, 2016 / by Liz

All in all, 2015 was a pretty good year. We traveled heaps, ate and drank (a little too) well, and were visited by tons of amazing family and friends. I spent the past year working at a sweet little bakery, and can honestly say it’s the happiest a job has ever made me.

The year didn’t come without sadness, though. Hitchen and I lost our kitty, Loretta… and just a few days later, my parents and I lost our family dog, Amber. I think that losing a pet is one of the most difficult things, because your relationship with them is uncomplicated and involves only unconditional love. I miss my girls every single day.

We’re spending a few days in the French country side, in a little cottage / farmhouse, and enjoying a quiet (and indulgent!) new year celebration with friends (and of course the dogs and cat). Such a nice way to close out the year. Bring on 2016!

Here are a few of my favourite snaps from 2015 :) xx
