It’s been a while since I posted anything on here so I thought I’d cheat and do a quick recap of (perhaps) the most amazing year for B and I.
Here’s a list of the significant dates for us this 2011:
- January 1
B had a great birthday, a significant age milestone!
- January 6
Received the email from New Zealand immigration, our NZ Residence visas, which we have been waiting 3 years for, have finally been approved!
- February 5
Papa turned 70, had an amazing birthday party with the family complete! We also received great news that we have a new nephew on the way.
- March 19
B and I flew to India for the first time. Beautiful country, amazing food, great people!
- April 9
The big move to New Zealand. It was an emotionally charged day, and I cried like a baby on the plane. Sad to leave my family behind, but so excited about our future in NZ. Wow what a day!
- April 10
Arrived in Auckland and had a first glimpse of our new country, beautiful!
- April 11
Touched down at our final destination, New Plymouth. Our mouths dropped when we saw how beautiful the place was. Though it felt like we were in limbo for a few days, loved the place but we were living out of a low-cost hotel room, which I hated.
- April 15
Moved in to our new apartment. Finally I was happy! We were sooo so lucky to get this place and we can finally say we are finally home!
- April 18
First day on the new job. NZ is a great place to work, I love my Kiwi officemates.
- May 28
The start of our weight loss journey, attended my first Weightwatchers meeting with a starting weight of 78.3kilos or 172 pounds, 6 months later.. we ended up losing 10kilos or 22 lbs each :)
- October 3
I turned 33 this year!
- November 11
One of the best days of our lives, we got married surrounded by family and friends! It was absolutely the most perfect and beautiful day.
- December 19
Honeymoon in Fiji, 9 days of pure bliss with the love of my life :)
What can I say? We’re having the time of our lives! We feel so incredibly happy and blessed for this wonderful year!
