Moments that matter 2013
2013 was a great year for me in so many ways; I had many moments that matter throughout the year each adding to the warmth that glow within.
Bean gave me a massive percentage of those moments with all of his “firsts” that 2013 had in store. His first taste of food while weaning him (the facial expression that I will treasure forever), his first moment of self-transport as he crawled his way across the floor followed weeks later by his first few steps. His first words first climb and first tumble. His first proper kiss to show you his affection and his found love of animals. The list could go on and on.
Another first of Beans but a big one……his first birthday! This is such a strange one because its kind of a emotional roller-coaster. The amount of love we felt from all our friends and family was also very overwhelming.
A great moment that stands out for me in 2013 is lying on my husband’s chest on the hill at Glastonbury music festival under the Glastonbury sign, with the sun shining and just feeling relaxed and loved. It is moments like that that make you feel at peace with the world and that nothing could get you down.
Glastonbury Festival was an experience with many moments that matter all rolled into one. I went with a fairly large group in 2013, my Glastonbury family, all of which I have great memories with.
Seeing my aunty for the last time before she passed away. That was a big moment as I was able to say goodbye and show I care. It was also very hard as my cousin wasn’t sure if she was going to make it in time to say good-bye and I had to relay a message, letting her know she was on her way. Luckily my cousin made it back in time.
A shopping trip in Brighton with my oldest and best friends. The moment when you are all sitting round the table laughing so hard your ribs hurt, at something that no one else would understand. I felt 16 for the whole day; I truly am blessed to have them in my life so I have moments like this to remember.
Harrys christening, a celebration spent with many friends and family.
I really did have an amazing 2013 by just enjoying the small things that life gave me. There was some sadness but it was mainly good times. I really could go on about my moments that mattered in 2013 but I think I will leave it there for now.
