Freelance Writing

Just before my 23rd birthday, I sat down and wrote a blog post all about being 22. It was a huge year for me – newly married, moving to Melbourne, joining a new church, making new friends and starting my career as a journalist. It was fun, scary, hard and honestly, a bit miserable at times….

Coffee Table Cookbooks

They say not to judge a book by its cover, but some books are just too pretty to keep tucked away in a book case. I’ve read a lot of books over the years, and recently I’ve been getting into cookbooks in a big way – and while I’d love to be that person with…

Minimalism?

I found myself deep in a YouTube rabbit hole recently. The kind where you’re watching a video and see something interesting pop up in the side bar… so you click it, and then click another link, and another, until you’re binge watching videos on a topic that didn’t exist in your world until three hours earlier. Maybe I’ve…

My Melbourne Top 10

When we first moved to Melbourne, there were a lot of things I was scared of… it was a new city, with new friends, a new church and a new job. I knew it would be difficult to settle in, but there was one thing I was sure of. It was going to be food…

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…

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)!…

The Lake District

It’s hard to describe such a beautiful place without photos, and words probably won’t describe England’s Lake District any better than my photos can – but it seemed wrong not to comment on how much I adore this place. We stayed in The Lake District for 3 nights, and while that doesn’t seem long (it certainly…
