Where has the year gone? I can't believe that this may already be my last post for the year. In 6 days I will be on a plane on my way to another great American haul and I'm starting to feel jittery inside!

-Highlights of 2013-
There are so many things I can think of off the top of my head when I look at this year in review - finally launching the Bellagio website, having our first Sydney Launch Party, upgrading to Anniepop 2.0...my cat! Haha

But the value that this year has really taught me, was that of family. My usual week includes working 9 to 5 (and sometimes even longer) on weekdays and blogging on weekends which means I can really only visit my parents once or twice a week. Every day this year I've looked forward to talking to my parents over the phone just to hear about their day-to-day which I really took for granted before when I was always at home with not much to do. We've been through a lot of scares and strife this year, the family situation has changed and I really admire the strength that my parents continue to show through the life adjustments that we have to make. These experiences have allowed us to become greater friends and I only hope to be a better daughter as the years go on.

With  that said, the love of family and admiration of friends is the best gift anyone could ask for! I wish everybody a Christmas and New Year full of laughter, good company and new memories and I will see you mid January when I get back. Have a safe holiday all!

Apologies for my brief absence. Like most of you probably are, I've also been inundated with end of year prep at work and at home. There have been Christmas celebrations and promotions left, right and centre and I'll be flying off to one of my favourite places in the world - the US of A in about 2 weeks time which is getting me pretty giddy!

Thank you to Style Lately and Rings & Tings for today's blog post in the big City. My kitty top is going to be a great contribution to my list of crazy cat lady things which I'm not ashamed to admit I have ;)
