Huge Announcement

Friends! It has been quite a while between posts. Yes, this has partially been laziness (busyness might be a better description) but it’s also because I’ve been working towards something very close to my heart, that I’ve been waiting and waiting to share with you. In 2013, myself and two friends set out to start an…

A Date with Brighton Beach

We’ve been doing our best to get-to-know our new home city, and most weekends we’ve managed to go somewhere, or do something new. Yesterday we drove to South Melbourne for a burger, and drove on to Brighton Beach to go for a walk and see the famously bright & colourful beach huts. Albert’s Hamburgers in…

A Month in Melbourne

Just over a month ago, we packed up our first home together and drove to Melbourne. My amazing parents set off a day before us in a big truck full of all our things (wearing high vis gear in true truckie style I might add), and we squished our ‘most valued’ items in our car……

Our Wedding

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh… – Genesis 2:24 I’ve thought about writing this post for so long, that no matter how many times I start it (& trust me, there’ve been a few!), words can’t convey my excitement…

Some Thoughts on Body Image

For me it was never the magazines, the TV shows or any of ‘the media’ – (ironically) I was never much into ‘the media’, whether by choice or by ignorance. For me it was always myself. Sure, I compared myself to my friends… “why can’t I have hair like…”, “why am I not as skinny as…”, “why is she…

The Best Kitchen Tea You Ever Did See!

There was everything from toilet paper wedding dresses, to a pre-recorded video from the groom to more sweet treats than 30 people could eat in a month. Almost everything was a surprise (except the date & time!) and I was completely blown away as we arrived at a close friend’s parents’ house, where they had strung…

Loving #2

I did a post like this a few weeks ago, & I had a lot of fun compiling a list of things I’ve been enjoying over recent weeks and months! I sometimes find myself appreciating things I never thought I’d enjoy, & I love having songs, books, verses, candles (etc. etc. etc.) recommended to me by others! I’m incredibly…

Wedding + Engagement Updates!

Peter took this picture of my ring earlier this year while we were in Munich, Germany. For me, pictures evoke feeling even more than words, and just seeing this photo fills me with so much excitement for the future and emotional memories about the night we got engaged (which now feels like a lifetime ago)!…

Loving

As a blogger, one of my favourite things to do is to read (and read and read and read…) other blogs. Naturally, I think that bloggers inspire each other with their thoughts, their creativity and their post ideas! I’ve been loving Erin James’s blog ‘It’s Erin James‘ (formerly ‘Sweetness Itself’) – especially her little ‘what I’m…

The Changing Seasons • Reflections

Times are changing… As I sat on a Sydney train yesterday for an hour and a half, diary open on my lap, pen between my teeth and mind all over the place, I had the sudden realisation that this year is one of the most uncertain years of my life so far. Never have I…
