...or should I say a VERY belated Happy New year. Usually, I kick start the new year with a fresh set of resolutions, but this year I haven't felt the need. Dean and I ended 2016 on a bit of low (see here) so just making it into 2017 felt enough of an achievement. I think it was also clear to any long-time followers; I suffered a blogging burnout towards to the end of last year. My work/life balance couldn't have been more off; I pushed myself too hard and developed a case of 'digital anxiety.' With 2016 and the post-Christmas slump firmly behind us, though, both of us are feeling more motivated than ever to get this year underway and off to a good start. 2017 will see two major life events come to fruition; the completion of our renovation and tieing the knot. Despite the political turmoil and uncertainty in the world right now (by no means am I disregarding this), personally I have a good feeling about this year already!
