THINGS THAT MADE ME HAPPY IN DECEMBER 2016

  1. 3rd: my vacation officially started and I had champers on the beach with my family.
  2. 4th: I saw this at a rest stop on the road, and it was perfect. I found it such a lovely body-positive thing to put in a ladies' room.
    (It's a stencil on a mirror. It's from Songs of Solomon 4:7. "You are altogether beautiful, my darling.")
  3. 5th: I got the keys to my new apartment!
  4. 6th: my little sister graduated 🤓👩🏻‍🎓
  5. 8th: I collected a copy of Kopano Matlwa's book, Period Pain, which I pre-ordered. Receiving it packed in the brown paper bag made me feel all sorts of excited.
  6. 15th: my amazing parents' 32nd wedding anniversary.
  7. 16th: my dad and I washed our golden oldie. Also this was a public holiday and I wasn't on duty, score!
  8. 19th: gran and I had a reading date
  9. 23rd: my sister made this floating Christmas tree, and my boyfriend insisted on taking ridiculous pictures with it 😂
  10. 25th: Christmas day. Food, family, sun and gifts. What's not to love?
  11. 28th: had my hair done 😁
    My hairdresser in my old town is wonderful. I'm going to miss her.
  12. Also 28th: my family had a farewell dinner for me. It was a little sad too.
  13. 31st: did my first run in the new place, and had boyfriend's mom over for NYE.
