2012 has been a very exciting year for us with lots of twist and turns on our life roller coaster, the biggest of course being the move we made to Australia in July. 2012 has been a year of both joyful meetings and sad goodbyes. A memorable meeting was in March when I met up with Becca in Stockholm, one of the three kids (now a grown up woman though) I looked after as a nanny in Boston back in the day. I had such a great time catching up with her and I hope it won’t be 7 years until next time. The saddest of goodbyes of them all was of course when leaving friends, family and animals to move Down Under.
2012 was also the year I made my wedding photographer debut at our good friends Maria & Håkan’s wedding. We also celebrated Simon turning 30 and sadly missed out on my brother’s wedding at the Canary Islands. We will also remember 2012 as a year of travelling with awesome long weekend trips to Amsterdam, Prag and a not so awesome, but still memorable, trip to see Swedish House Mafia in Dublin.
2012 was also the year when I made a career change when I swapped my job as a Product Manager for a position as a Purchasing Manager, an interesting challenge indeed. I’ve also been lucky to be able to be involved in starting up the brand new local SWEA organisation here in Melbourne and become part of the board.
It’s now time to say goodbye to the year 2012 and welcome the brand new 2013. We’re excited to see what it has in store for us and hope it will be filled with lots of joy and happiness. We already know it has a visit from my brother and sister-in-law in store for us as well as a Swedish House Mafia concert so we’re off to a good start. We hope you all have a smashing New Year’s celebration, toast in the new year in style and we wish you all the best for the year ahead.Happy New Year
