Looking back through our 2015 photos, I can see this was the year we fell deeper in love with New Zealand, our adopted country.
Our overseas travel was limited as I was unwell for much of the year (I am cleared now). Plus both of the girls had good reason to stay around. Melissa focused on her final year of secondary school education, and although we continued to home educate, Sarah participated in a photography class at the school.
I would have called it a transition year, but I think that will be theme of 2016. Melissa starts university at the end February (this is the normal start time in New Zealand). Sarah (age 15) will spend the year in Argentina as an AFS exchange student (she has promised to blog about it here). Hubby and I have some interesting travel ideas.
For today, here are our 2015 photos – the highlights (featured in no particular order):
Choosing my top 20 2015 photos was much more challenging than I thought it would be. This post is part of a series that also includes 2015 Auckland Festival and Event Highlights and the best of Sarah’s Saturday Snapshots.
Did I include your favorite of my photos? Did you share your top 2015 photos? Are you ready for 2016?
PS: Thanks to all my readers in 2015.
Wishing everyone a wonderful new year!
