It is the last day of the year, and the best time to look back with appreciation and a grateful heart. 2016 was a very good year for Ron and me. We had the chance to meet and network with so many great people. We traveled and experienced new things. But also we faced many challenges along the way, even though I barely ever shared them with you.
Most people think that Ron and I live a fairy tale, but reality is that we are just like you. We have our ups and downs, often struggling with everyday matters. But we believe that we needn’t bother you with our downs, because we want to inspire you. We don’t want to make you feel sad. We want to make you feel good and positive about life. I myself believe that focusing on the good things brings more good things, and it’s a message I will continue transferring throughout 2017.
In 2016 we created 120 posts – putting all our love and energy with one main aim – to inspire you. And we do love (almost) every single publication of ours. However, for this preview of 2016 we selected our most favorite works.
In 2016 we had an amazing summer traveling within the country and outside. Ron and I are extremely thankful for such opportunities, because they makes us feel alive. You know, people say travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer. :)
Ron made his appearance in front of the camera a few times this year, and I quite enjoyed this. Even though I still believe he takes the best pictures of me. We joked that he needs to clone himself in order to keep up with this.
One of 2016’s best travel experiences was our visit to Malta. We had a few wonderful days there with my beloved friend Silviya. To be honest, going through the photos from our trip to Comino makes me want to cry. I remember how much I enjoyed swimming in the Blue Lagoon – the last time I actually experienced the sea this year. Oh my, I am so looking forward to meeting summer again!
All in all 2016 was a very successful and interesting year. Ron and I are extremely grateful for everything it has given us. You’d ask what we wish for in 2017? Opportunities. We want to face opportunities to travel, experience new things, meet new people, and discover new worlds. That’s what make us feel complete and satisfied. And we wish the same for you. In fact it’s a good thing to live with the thought that life will give you chances all the time. It’s your job to take them.
Thank you for sharing 2016 with us! We are so looking forward to seeing what 2017 will bring.
See you in 2017!
Lots of love!
