I’m a twenty one year old who;

loves Jesus first and foremost

is a writer at heart

lives in Australia

likes a good metaphor and oxford comma

reads more often than not

sings too loudly in the car

is happiest when drinking tea in the sun

mostly takes photos of plants

Golden King Sunflower Plants

This blog began as a challenge.

In January 2017 I told myself I would write and publish a blog post every day of the year. There were many reasons; to grow myself, to inspire others, to pursue my love of writing.

Believe it or not, I wrote about 350 of those 365 days.

At the beginning of this challenge I had no idea that this blog would be where it is today, over one year later. I no longer write everyday, but I can’t give it up.

I named this blog ‘Be My Year’ (or ‘Be My 2017’) because when this all started, I wanted 2017 to be the year I embraced. And, as I wrote every day, the year I documented and remembered in a way I never had before.

The name remains because I believe every year should be the one we live with arms open wide.


Enjoy reading through my many endeavours.

I blog on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.

All photos on my blog are my own.

Please do not use any of my writing or photos without my permission.
