The year that was…

The year that was…

Reminiscing the year gone by, I’m overcome by a myriad of emotions. The good, the bad and the ugly were all wrapped up in one ginormous gift and handed to me. Life is but a roller coaster ride and we must run with the bulls, that I have learnt to do well. This past year, mistakes were made, lessons were learnt, steps were taken, descions were made, moved forward, wandered cities, laughed, lived and loved.  After all, memories are made of these!

Bitten by the DOODLE bug!

“Yankee Doodle went to town
A-riding on his pony
He stuck a feather in his hat
And called it macaroni”

*Keeps singing this bit of the rhyme repeatedly in her head*

I don’t know how or why this rhyme came to my head but it stuck. It stuck for a whole day and then all I wanted to do the next day was DOODLE! I guess it was the DOODLE in Yankee Doodle that got me to want to draw! =) Plus, a cold and rainy day makes you want to stay inside the comfort of your home! *Brrrrrr* Continue reading “Bitten by the DOODLE bug!”
