So this time last year I took a photo of my fat face to link up with my blogging friend Roos, who does this every single Monday. Today she is celebrating 100 'Mirror Mondays'
but also the journey of the last 12 months.
Despite everything she is still strong, still sane, still funny and still chic!
And despite being faced with just about every bug going her man Kenji is here too. I'm not sure how sane or how chic or even how!
It's a good time for reflection this Monday morning thing - and thinking back over the last 12 months you (probably) know I have so much to be grateful for.
Between last years photo and this, a little friend lost her battle with cancer and died at home with her family around her.
Lydia was an absolute inspiration - and so are her parents and big brother who, despite unimaginable grief, have shown us all what it is to celebrate someone's life, no matter how short.
Roos, and Cheryl, you are an inspiration to me.
