2016 Review

Hope your Christmas was a blast! Mine was meh..I had flu and spent all of the holidays plus more in the bed mainly blowing my nose, popping pain killers and antibiotic either sleeping or watching Sherlock. I read the original stories ages ago when I was little – science of deduction is so fascinating. Even though I had planned to take a break from the blog for a few months I just thought to pop-in and do 2016 Review. It’s not every day that I’m forced to think of how this year had been!

 Travel

It was great to visit my home in India and meet friends and family after 2 years but more exciting was the fact that my sister could join in. My sister and I usually plan our trips as it’s more fun to be together.

Reading

I read 25 books this year – my favorite book of this year would be hands down When Breath Becomes Air. It’s about a young American neurosurgeon who develops terminal cancer – I appreciated every word of this book and the epilogue by his wife was outstanding.

Food

Two of the new places we checked out this year were Nandos (delicious, must go!) and Fion’s (just opened on 137th Ave – Excellent!) I baked quite a lot this year including Mr.lobster’s birthday cake, peanut’s birthday cake and Christmas cookies – my best friend especially during Christmas baking has been this baby.

Calligraphy

I have been wanting to take a calligraphy class & i finally did this year! It was 5 hours long and totally worth it. Check out paint spot’s classes.

Plants

Not surprisingly, all of my friends & family now know that I love plants. This year I got plenty of  ’em – can you hear my heart singing?!?

Planner

bando planner 2017

I fell in love with bando from the moment I opened the planner and saw the stickers! What is it about stickers? Is that my inner child being called upon to play? There is plenty of room to make notes and track appointments. Since I am obsessed about planning – this is definitely planning with style. I have a surprise for last week of January. Hint: Something to do with planners 🙂

Family

My mom lived with us for two months and cut-short her trip due to cold! It was her first time visiting Canada and she wasn’t too keen on staying for another month. Mr. Lobster and I got engaged<3 woot woot. No, we don’t have a date for the wedding yet! And to recap my promotion I am now a godmother to Baby Z. This year has been very eventful!

Not only I am grateful for each little blessing of life but I look forward to the next year with hope and prayer that my life and words become blessing to someone in need.

Wish you Peace, Prosperity and Joy in 2017!
