Goodbye to 2012! Thankfully we have Instagram to help us reflect, so let's go!
We rang in the new year dressed as zombies and zombie killers (although I spent most of the night sitting drunk under a tree),
we picnicked on New Year's Day to farewell Brad & Tahlia as they moved to Sydney,
I donned full makeup in 40 degree weather to help out a friend, and the green team rocked the Summer Swing Smackdown.
In January, we also said a very sad farewell to our dear friend, Paulie, who passed away unexpectedly later in the month. We still miss him terribly and this was a difficult time for our community, of which he was a much loved and appreciated part.
We celebrated Laura's (not 21st) birthday, started hitting the local farmers' market,
I turned 25 (and got new glasses and leopard print shoes),
we performed & hung out at Perth's Fringe World festival, and I saw Death Cab for Cutie at the Perth Festival.
(We also celebrated Valentine's Day, missed our friends who had moved east, and I performed as a Ninja in my friend's burlesque show.)
I hit the books back at uni, we tried cheeseburger sushi for the first time,
we enjoyed pizza & pint at the Scotto, saw Bon Iver in the hills,
had a bit of a wild party, and farewelled Anna, who moved to Sydney.
(I also saw Ryan Adams at the Perth Concert Hall... ooh, I love him.)
We had a quiet Easter with our families, hit up the Angove Street Festival (we got rained out),
Kathryn and Clint moved to Melbourne (boohoo), I went to Canberra for the first time on a work trip,
then I caught up with my sister in her new home city.
In May, there were hotdogs, we moustached up for our friends' Mexican fiesta,
Josh, Laura and I had a little photoshoot for our upcoming Fringe show,
Jarrad and I enjoyed the Perth Hills Rose Festival, and Trevor, Ben and a random guy shared fashion tips.
Jarrad and I took a relaxing trip to Broome where I read the whole Hunger Games Trilogy,
we started rehearsing our Fringe show,
Kathryn came for a visit, and my parents got a new puppy, Wolfie!
