I don't know anyone who isn't appreciative of stunning fresh flowers. I adore them... I have mentioned this before, but growing up and when I left home to go to uni, my mum used to say 'even when times are tight you should always spare enough change for a beautiful bunch of fresh flowers'. Love you mum. They completely lift your home and your spirits. A florist that I love to follow on Facebook, does this visually for me every day with their gorgeous posts. The Norwood Flower Market. Every Thursday and Friday you can "Send a Little Love" and this week it is a stunning bunch of peonies beautifully wrapped. So, surprise someone you love with a fresh posy of flowers just because. It'll make their day. xx
Loving everything about this living room...The sofa, large print, mirror and bedside table used as a coffee table with a little whimsical thrown in. Collating inspiration for our lounge room as I am slowly selling our furniture on gumtree and shuffling things around to make way for fresh new beginnings. Who knew decluttering was so addictive. xx
Well, I have not laughed so hard in years. Class of '94 Reunion...we picked up like we left off... and laughed late into the night... hence a lazy Sunday today. My favourite. Hope you've had a wonderful weekend. xx
This afternoon I'll be jumping in the car and driving back to my home town of Bordertown. It's my 20 year High School Reunion. The last 24 hours have been a bit of a revelation to me, you see I thought I was just going back to see my old school friends and catch up, but it seems that it is more than that for me. I'm trying to recall the last time I was 'home'... and I think it was when I was about 6 months pregnant, although I might be wrong. My memory of that time is all just a blur. That's now about 5 years ago. My brother died just over 5 years ago, and not long after that my parents moved to a house they had bought a few years earlier on the Fleurieu Peninsula to be closer to my sister-in-law and niece who were also grieving their devastating loss. A few months later the house I grew up in was up for rent and then eventually sold. So, this trip for me today will be a meaningful one, filled with memories of family, happiness, milestones, laughter and sadness. One that I need to do. xx
This weekend we celebrated a milestone in our house... our 4yo daughter learned to ride her bike without training wheels. As I sit here MMSing the video I took of it to our family members I thought I should take some inspiration from little miss A and "get back on the bike" so to speak and "get back on the blog".
I have been online tonight twiddling with the template as I feel it needed a bit of a refresh. It's been a while since I've delved into my creative side and I realise I've missed it. So bare with me while I make some changes on here, just know I'm having fun finding my way. xx
