Every year in the Kim family, I asked 'Santa' for a puppy. That is literally ALL I wanted for christmas. But did I get a puppy? Nooooooooo, I got all sorts of puppy-related things, like a puppy necklace, stuffed animal puppy (not the taxidermy kind, thank god), puppy notebooks, etc. Then, after years of emotional let-down, I found out that santa wasn't real (which took way longer than it should have), and most of the celebrations just stopped. No Christmas trees, no decorations, no nothing.
Fast forward to this year: I got the BEST present ever from my awesome boyfriend (a new year trip to Rome!), I'm meeting such cool people in Bergen, I got to decorate and dance around the christmas tree, eat amazing food from Ø's sweet parents, AND i got to see Santa!
Basically...this was the best Christmas to date.
As 2012 comes to an end, I am so very grateful for all the amazing people around me and also on the blogsphere. 2012 has just been an awesome year so far, and I just want to use this space to express my gratitude for all the beautiful things, thoughts, and sentiments that are put out into the world, and that I hope to return the favor by being a good person and do more good than bad.
ok... enough deep reflections for now. Onto the fun pictures!
