What a year I am looking back at! 12 month after celebrating 2011 it´s nothing what I imagined it to be. Here are some or more of my monthly highlights.
01// I celebrate Christmas and New Year´s Eve in Granada. It´s the first time I am not at home in Linz.
02// I change jobs and meet the best colleagues ever! After a four years struggle to find work related to Communications, I am at home at last.
03// Some of the best colleagues and I are going skiing to the Pyrenees. On the same day we also go rafting. Big fear, but finally big fun! ¡Chicas locas!
04// Dani and I go to Linz for the Easter break. We take the bikes at the riverside of the Danube, enjoy the coffee houses and go to the casino. I find Linz better than ever (not the casino, though).
05// I take an unexpected business trip to Paris, for just 20 hours. Stuck in pompom and decorating mania in our apartment.
06// My flowers are blooming, my vegetables growing and growing. I planted tomatoes, radish, herbs and even pumkins. I am a very happy gardener!
07// The economic crisis is hitting Spain so badly, especially construction is affected. Dani tells me about Canada for the first time. They construct a highway close to the US border. It´s one of Ontario´s biggest projects. We are thinking, calculating, talking. I am afraid and curious at the same time.
08// Desicion made! Within four days we pack up everything and make the move. I get an arepas-dinner and the most spectacular DIY recipe book from my friends at work. Bye bye Barcelona, hello Windsor! I start blogging. It´s so much fun!
09// We are looking for a house...uff! I start with Yoga. Hmmm!
10// Found: our home for the next three years. Small, but with a backyard. I will be a happy gardener again! My mom visits us and helps a lot. We visit Niagra Falls. My first real Halloween.
11// We go to New York for a weekend.
12// A care package from my mum arrives...snif, snif! I bake lots of Christmas cookies and get addicted to knitting.
I want to say a big Thank You to everybody who has shared this year with me, supporting me, whatever decision I have made!
Tissues away now, tomorrow I´ll continue with none-sentimental postings again ;)
Have a good manic Monday,
