December Recap

January 4, 2014

IMG_20131201_115607 copyHow was your new year? I’m still shocked that it’s January already – it feels like it was summer just last month! Anyway, December was a pretty good month. We did quite a lot throughout the month, from going to a German Christmas Market while we were doing our Christmas shopping (though I only took a couple photos on my phone, but you can see my post from when we went a couple years back here – it hasn’t changed much). We also went to an amazing family run Christmas Tree farm to choose our tree. It was so much fun! Then we spent a weekend decorating our Christmas Tree and house up ready for Christmas. That’s always my favourite.

I also turned 23 last month, and my mum baked me my favourite chocolate cake with added sparkles and glitter. I had a pretty laid back birthday as having a birthday 4 days before Christmas isn’t much fun when you want to go out anywhere haha! I got some great stuff though 🙂 Then we celebrated Christmas with my parents and Gran. I did a recap post of some of my favourite trips throughout the year that we took together which you can find here.

I can’t wait for what this year has in store. I’m pretty excited about it. What have you got planned for this year?

    What wonderful photos! You’ve completely captured that wonderful homely, warm, christmassy feel that flows throughout December. I’m so sad it’s over, and shocked it’s January too. But also looking forward to Summer again. Your holiday sounds wonderful :o)

    Fingers crossed for a wonderful 2014!

      Thank you! I use photoshop for mine, just adding the photos in and leaving a small space between each photo. You can also use something like picasa to make a collage though if you don’t have photoshop. 🙂
