Some of My Favourite Posts of 2013

My Favourite Posts of 2013 2013 has been a year of tremendous change for us as a family and for me personally. Our son took his first steps out into the world as he went to Canada to study and my husband and I learned about what it’s like to have an empty nest. We shared our home and our lives with some amazing people. I kept house, decluttered, decorated, entertained (a lot!), wrote many of my favourite posts and developed recipes.

I visited Canada six times, California twice and Ireland three times. I went to Germany and to Israel, both for the first time.

I was thrilled to be asked to be Godmother to a dear friend’s daughters.

I learned that how long you have the privilege of knowing someone doesn’t begin to affect how deeply they can influence you.

For the first time, instead of worrying about the number in my age, I find myself being incredibly grateful for every single year of it.

I found out that redefining and reinventing myself can be fun.

I learned that home really is where the heart is – and that its location really isn’t ever just one place.

And you, my readers, were with me, every step of the way. My life is infinitely richer for your presence. Thank you for sharing the journey with me.

Here are some of my favourite posts from last year.
