Top 10 Instagrams of 2013: #2 Hung Out With Friends … And Each Other

By Rowena Mynott

As 2013 starts to wind down its a good time to reflect on the year that has just passed and the year that is to come. I have obviously been in a reflective mood recently as last month I decided to start a monthly ‘Taking Stock‘ routine: pausing life for a few moments to realise what you are happy and thankful for right in that very moment. Right now as I sit here and look through my images from 2013, I embrace the good and the sad, the ups and the downs and the growth that has taken place. This year has focused on family: Visits and holidays with family from overseas early in the year, my grans passing mid year and these days realising my son is no longer a toddler but is growing into the most incredible child I could ask for.

72&Rising is also growing and developing. I left the magazine format behind and embraced the world of blogging. Thank you to all those that embraced that change with me. It was a difficult decision to make as I loved the old product, but for me right now this is where we need to be. Who knows what the future holds but in 2014 you can certainly expect some exciting things happening here as this process of writing, taking pictures and posting on a regular basis becomes more fluid. I’m re-defining 72 and I look forward to hearing from you about what you would like me to focus on a little more.  There will be plenty of the old: travel and photography but also some new … Let me know.

So as a way to reflect on 2013 I decided to give you a little glimpse into my life and share some of our Top 10 family highlights as seen from my Instagram.  If you would like to follow along, I will be posting one each morning for the next 10 days. Today is Hung out with friends … and each other.

Hung Out With Friends … And Each Other

Life is nothing without friends and family. Being surrounded by those that you love brings laughter, love and support to your life.WWe make sure that we hang out with our friends and each other often, at the beach, in the garden, at the airport – the location isn’t important. These moments are what create the stories that we share years down the track, they create the laughter and the shared bonds.

You know it does not matter where in the world you live, as long as you are surrounded by family and friends you loveand are loved by, then you are at home.

How do you spend your time with family and friends? Let me me know in the comments below.
