It’s that time of year again! Time to reflect on the year that’s been and the new year that lays blank ahead of us. It’s a time to choose how we approach and shape the new year. For me I look forward to the new year and a new fresh start. Living in Australia, the new year also brings our warmest weather, and that itch to be outside enjoying the fresh air and sunshine.
