Before the year ends, I just want to say how thankful I am for another year of blogging! How amazing is it that the blog has survived yet another year? Blogging has saved my sanity many times since I embarked on this nomadic life. It’s been my way to connect with other people even in the loneliest and darkest times.
I am also so thankful that with the help of so many people I have finally come up with a blog that looks the way I want it to – luscious, luxe with pops of sea green and a little gold bling! After a few years of trying to do it on my own with some cheap themes I decided to reach out an ask for help from Martine and Sara. All those friends who gave me referrals, feedback and advice – you know who you are – thank you so much!

To super bloggers, I am sure my numbers are tiny, but to me they are more than I ever expected them to be. I am so thankful that I’ve made it this far. When I started blogging I could never have imagine keeping it up for this long. Blogging is not as easy as I expected it to be, because coming up with good quality posts, with great photos takes a lot of time and effort. I hope I can continue doing this despite the many life changes in diplo life!
Thanks so much to all you readers who have continued to follow along! Cheers to 2014!
