LOADS of awesome stuff happened this year. I turned 30. Woohoo! I ate mopani worms and saw rhinos in Africa. I tried Finnish whisky and ate MANY types of fishes. I went to my first music festival. I learned to swing dance. I started this blog!

I met so many lovely people and got to hang out with lots of the fantastic ones I already know. I went to London, Fife, South Africa, Botswana, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Dundee, Manchester, Selkirk, Helsinki, New York, Philly and Delaware. I ate a lot of ridiculously good food. I made a lot of cake. I planned a lot of plans. I paid off my credit card. I walked a lot. I even started to actually enjoy my job, which is largely a testament to the rockin’ people I work with.

Overall, what I’m saying is: I’m pretty lucky. I can’t complain.

I can only hope 2015 will be at least as amazing, if not more so.

So without further ado, here are some highlights in pictures. See you next year!
