Weekly Photo Challenge: Regret


I  sometimes regret sleeping too much.  Many times I miss out on the finer things in life because of my lazy habit.

Ashley took this picture when the two of us were backpacking through Europe a few years ago.  We were travelling via train through Italy.  Check my pout.  I wonder what I missed while I was sleeping.

The last decade

I received a suggestion:

Highlight each year I have been alive in a single sentence.  That would be too long a post so I decided to break it down to the last 10 years:

2002 – Got married to the love of my life and started our new life together
2003  – Bought our first house in Kuilsriver, Cape Town
2004  – I quit my job and started Lilly Loompa.
2005 –  We went backpacking through Europe.
2006 –  Acquired another property
2007 – Gave birth to Chelsea, our first-born
2008 – Graduated as an Interior Decorator
2009 – Gave birth to Kirsten, our second daughter.
