Moments in Melbourne

A very HAPPY NEW YEAR to all of you out there! I wish everyone well and the best that the year has to offer.

The past few months have zoomed by quickly and served as a much-needed decompression as I settle back into the States.  It's been wonderfully welcoming and as 2013 wrapped up, we found ourselves reflecting on the past year and all that has happened.  There was a lot of traveling going on, which had me skipping along 3 continents with a huge grin on my face and a heart full of gratitude.  A special thank you to those who have been a part of the journey, you guys know who you are!

In the next few posts, I'll share some moments and take you through a visual journey of my trips.  First off is the capital of Victoria, otherwise known as Melbourne, Australia.  With its many alleyways and laneways, Melbourne has cultivated itself to be a city rich of culture, art, and food.  It's incredibly easy to fall in love with this city and that's exactly what I do each time.
