12 months of being 30: November & December catch up

* This post is part of my 12 months of being 30 project, an attempt to record what happens during my year of being 30. During November and December, I did my writing and collage, but I forgot to post something here, so I'm catching up now!

November felt like a transition month. I was still getting used to my new job. Already looking forward to Christmas, but without wanting to get too excited. It got cold, but I managed to keep the blues away thinking about the simple things that make me happy. And, of course, in November, we got engaged!

December was all about Christmas, and I loved it! This year I realized that I love the run up to Christmas probably a tiny bit more than Christmas itself. The parties, the drinks after work, the office party, even buying the presents can be fun (maybe because I was very organized!). I always go home for Christmas, and this year, we celebrated it twice: Once in Spain with my family, and later in England with boyfriend's family. It was the best of both worlds! December was also a month for looking back, saying goodbye to 2009 and looking forward to the future!


  1. Looks like you had two good months of being 30! and many more to look forward to. I love the collages.. very nice. Congrats!!! xx

  2. I am sure that without a journal this will be one of your most memorable years! But how wonderful that you have put words, photos and illustrations to remember it all. Very nice, B. And just think how exciting the next couple of months are going to be! I am getting goose bumps...

  3. 30 seems to be a good age for you:) The collages are so pretty!

  4. You're 30th year is proving to be pretty significant is many ways and I'm so glad you're keeping this journal. Imagine pouring over it with your kids/grandkids one day!
