What makes you happy?

Today is International Day of Happiness, which was introduced by the UN in 2012 to recognise ‘the relevance of happiness and well-being as universal goals and aspirations in the lives of human beings around the world and the importance of their recognition in public policy objectives’ as well as to be a useful reminder that the happiness comes from family, friends and good emotional well-being rather than money and fame.

This leads me to a question: who is actually celebrating this day – the happy ones, or the ones looking for happiness?

A walk in Christ Church Meadow

The other day Ben and I were lucky to go for a walk in Christ Church Meadow with a wonderful photographer Roxy – @21gramsphotography.

She actually found me on instagram and offered us a romantic shoot – and if you know me, you’d know that there is no way I’d say no to a photoshoot! You’ve heard about the proposal, right? 🙂

What happened to Po in ’17

We’re getting closer to the end of 2017 and I would like to review it – to savour the memories whilst they are still clear and write them down, so that I won’t forget.

What a year it has been! So much has happened, so many boxes have been ticked, so many great memories and realisations #adulting 🙂

So let’s start.

January 2017

I’ve started the year dressed as a police officer, and 12 days later (don’t forget, my birthday is on 12th of January!), I was the karaoke princess celebrating hitting a quarter of a century at the Mad Hatter.

The next day we went on a ski trip, which I’m sure you’ve read about and might have even seen the video. (…and if you haven’t, go for it! :))

All in all, my month was fantastic, so 2017 had a really good start.
