Mid-year recap and update

It’s been quite hectic since my last blog post. It feels like so much has happened already and I wanted to get this post done as another update as we head to the middle of this year. It’s also a place for me to store the great memories from the past few months before I go on my overseas adventure. This is like a wrap up of the first half of 2023 for me and I’m hoping the second half is even much better!

2023 so far…

I had every intention of writing a blog post at the start of the year. I started it but it sat in my drafts because life got in the way. Probably like most people, I started the year quite hopeful and I was ready to have a great year. I even made a 2023 mood/vision board! I was so excited for this year as I had some fun things planned but instead, the first 2 and a half months of this year has thrown me quite a few curveballs. What a rollercoaster it has been already and it’s only March!

Melbourne 2022

Going overseas this year wasn’t really in the plans but when the opportunity came up to go to Melbourne for a week, I didn’t hesitate. This was my first overseas trip since the pandemic started. This was also the last city I went to before the world locked down and NZ borders closed. I was quite excited to leave the country after 3 years and of course I had to document it.

Midyear Recap & Update

Most of my blog posts this year has been about my trips. To break it up, I thought it was time for a midyear update and a recap (I also did one last year). The first half of the year has gone by quickly, as it feels like every single year. It has been a good one so far though! In this post I’ll share what’s been happening: the good and not so good (getting Covid).
