2018 second quarter review (one second a day)

Halfway through the year already! It’s time for a visual break with this short video. It’s my usual one second a day, which I’m doing better at remembering videos more often instead of pictures.

Videos are way more interesting right?

Some highlights:

  • The commonwealth games
  • Another 3 months of my baby’s development
  • Getting back into running again
  • A run of bad health (including one hospital visit for Luca and one for myself)
  • Entering an obstacle course race with some friends and family

    2018 first quarter review (one second a day)

    Banner image of one second every day video

    Last year I started doing a month-by-month video capturing one second every day. I posted it every month, finally culminating in the 2017 year in review video.

    It was so good I decided to do it again this year. I got some friends hooked in the meantime as well!

    The difference is this year I’m only going to post them quarterly. It just means there’s more to watch in one hit, and it’s more interesting. Well, at least I think so anyway. I’d love to hear everyone’s thoughts. [...]  read more

    A look back at 2017 – one second a day

    I have never loved doing a project quite so much as this one. So much in fact that I’m going to do it again for 2018. I got so much out of it! My husband and I sat back and watched the video together last night, and there were so many times we said “oh yeah remember that”. So much of it seems so long ago now it’s hard to believe it was only months, not years.

    2017 was one hell of a year. There were some major highs, and unfortunately some lows. It was one of the most memorable years of my life. [...]  read more

    October one second a day

    This month was epic in the grand scheme of things – irreversibly changing my life.

    It’s the month that we gave birth to our son.

    Plus some other things of course, but they pale a bit in comparison. Needless to say the video quickly becomes full of images of our little man, as well as our hospital stay and eventual return home.

    Other highlights from the month:

    • Celebrated 11 months of wedded bliss with my husband
    • I learned how to use the whipper snipper for the first time
    • Picnic in the hinterlands for a 52
    • The last few days of pregnancy were hard, I was exhausted
    • Going back to hospital 14 days after bub was born with excruciating rib pain (resolved on itself, many theories on what caused it)

    I can’t promise you that November is just going to be full of photos of the baby…sorry.
