Part of my 52 in 52 list for 2014 is to take a photo a day. Each Sunday I plan on posting photos from the week before.Wednesday 1st January
Mario (the nickname for my boyfriend due to his Italian heritage) and I enjoyed a sleep in after a party at his friend's place the night before. We were in the middle of a two week holiday, and really struggling to find some time to actually relax. New Year's Day, normally reserved for coping with hangovers, ended up being the first day we relaxed. We had only indulged in a few drinks the night before, nothing heavy, and thus woke up fresh. We went to the markets in the morning, returned home and spent an hour in the garden. We ended up pulling out all the mint that had taken over lots of sections, filling a HUGE rubbish bag with it. We kept a small portion for some fruit smoothies, and the rest got binned. The crazy part is that it will all be back within 3 months.
Thursday 2nd January
One of my favourite people in the world had messaged me a couple of days earlier to see if Mario and I were free for dinner, so we organised it for the Thursday night. We enjoyed a bbq dinner made by Mario including an amazing paleo chocolate tart (sidenote – I'm now sugar free for the year, conditions apply and will be blogged later). It was great to see my friends, since they live down in one of the southern states of Australia, which means I don't get to see them as much as I would like.
