Happy New Year, everyone! May 2022 be your best year yet! 😁😁 Hope you had also enjoyed your holiday – my new year’s resolution definitely needs to be to work off all the food I have eaten over the past weeks! πŸ˜‚

Farewell 2019, Welcome 2020

As I grow older, I realise more time really does fly by in a blink. 2019 has been quite a year for me in terms of getting myself out of my comfort zone (such as starting this blog and an Instagram account- something I have avoided for a while lol), and I really have learnt more about myself as a person throughout this past year. πŸ™‚

As we are approaching to the end of another year, I always find time to try to get myself to reflect on things that have happened throughout the past year. And I always found a quiet walk helps with that process, especially being in one with nature. πŸπŸ‚πŸŒΎ So I took a stroll around the beautiful Arthur’s Seat, somewhere I used to come by regularly growing up in Edinburgh.

There were happy and sad times, as well as high and low moments in the past year. But I know that they are all treasured moments of a long journey and all played a part in making me better as a person. It is only the beginning now. ❀️

But I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who have been reading, liking and commenting on my posts here. 😊 Getting followers is one thing. I started this blog as a mean to get away from my daily life, so I could only ever dream of the supports I get here. (Honestly, I was elated even by the presence of one reader at the start lol! πŸ˜‚)

Can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring! Hopefully more new β€˜adventures’ on the horizon! πŸ˜€πŸ‘

(P.S. Also here are my Top 9 bakes according to my Instagram account! Plenty more to come in 2020 of course! πŸ˜†)
