This year has been an absolute whirlwind for me. I feel like I was constantly busy and on the move-- and for many good reasons! I truly had such a good year and am so thankful. I really hope that 2018 is even better!
A big thank you to all who have stopped by my personal blog (this one) and The Fins United Initiative Bit Blog in 2017. You're all so supportive, positive, and truly brighten my day. I hope to continue creating posts that you enjoy in 2018! I wish you and all of your family and friends a very happy new year.
When it comes to New Year's Eve in Sydney there are two sides: the "OMG I loooove NYE in the city" and "Get me the f*** out of the CBD area." Right now, I am ALL about number one. Joshua and I are SO excited to see what the city has to offer and really experience the official new year. Wellington fireworks have left me wanting more-- Sydney is known to deliver every year. How are you going to ring in the new year?
I can't wait to see what 2018 has in store -- if was anything like this past year, we're in luck! This year brought upon a lot of change for me--but luckily, in all of the best ways possible. Here's what I hope to be able to work on in 2018:
Gifts for those who love ghost sharks
I will say I was quite disappointed that this gift guide isn't as diverse as I wanted it to be. But like chimaeras (known as "ghost sharks" to many), little is out there regarding these critters. What I have found is... fascinating. Just like the creatures themselves.
