Hello 2016.

We've had a lovely couple of days saying goodbye to 2015 and welcoming in 2016.

We had a quiet New Year's Eve day at home swimming in the pool and taking it easy. 
We popped out to gather a few supplies for our celebration at home. Champagne, sparklers, party poppers etc. All the essentials! Everyone was very keen to stay up til midnight and celebrate.

I managed to grab some photos of us and the boys before we drove down to Manly to meet up with some family to watch the 9 o'clock fireworks.  I thought the boys would fall asleep in the car on the way home but they were still going strong!

Noah lasted about 15 minutes at home before heading to bed but Finn and Jasper stayed up til midnight and rang in the new year with us. 
We toasted each other with sparkling Appletiser out of plastic champagne glasses and the boys felt very grown up as we shared our resolutions and hopes for 2016. It was really lovely.

I love the feeling of a fresh start and endless possibilities.
The lightbox this morning reflected the extra day this year due to it being a leap year!

We started off the new year with a beach day.
Blue skies and the ocean were the perfect beginning to 2016.

How were your NYE celebrations?  How did you spend your first day of 2016?

The words below describe how I am feeling about this year.


  1. Happy New Year to you Simone! Looks like you've been making the most of the summer holidays with the fam. We managed to get away for a few days which was nice and otherwise had a holiday at home with sleep ins, movie marathons, and overdosing on chocolate :)
