100 Days & the ‘I Do’s!

As soon as I saw you, I knew an adventure was going to happen. – Winnie the Pooh I never saw myself as an ‘adventurer’, but looking back, our relationship has been quite the journey – I expect every relationship is, in its own way. With 100 days until our wedding day, I couldn’t believe…

Our Engagement Party!

I thought I’d pop onto the blog today to give you a little update on our wedding, and the celebrations we had over the weekend! A lot of people talk about the engagement period being a stressful time of life, but I have to say that I’ve found it to be a real blessing, and…

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…

Coming Home

Sadly, the days of repacking, sink-washing and epic exploring are over. Four days ago we boarded a twenty something hour flight that would take us all the way back to Sydney, Australia. While I’m so sad that this incredible journey has ended, it’s exciting to be home. Two months is a decent length of time to be…

The Year in Reflection • 2014

Last year I wrote a ‘2013 Year in Reflection’ post on New Years Day – this New Years Day I’ll be hundreds of thousands of kilometres away in Germany (ahhh!), without access to all the photos from the year that has been, so I’ve decided to post this a little bit early! This year has had…

‘Life Groups’ – A Chat with Bethany

Hello again! I hope you’re not feeling overloaded with posts this week, because I love the post that my friend Bethany has written for Simply Sweet today. I first met Bethany at a youth camp about 4 years ago, and I knew her as the cousin-of-my-friend – but over time, I’ve come to know and love her…

‘Life Groups’ – A Chat with Kiryn

I remember the first time I ever met Kiryn. She was the cheeky big sister of one of my best friends. Anjli and I were in Kindergarten, and Kiryn was in Year 2 – I distinctly remember playing in the school grounds during lunch time when Kiryn came up to me and said, ‘hey, I…

Our Engagement Story

We pulled up on the side of the road and I looked up to the small park where we went on our first date. Between the two old fig trees on the grassy hill I could see the warm glow of lights in the darkness and bouncing off the leaves. “Peter,” I said, “we can’t…

More Than a Seat • A Little Story

Hello, and welcome to my study break! This week has been absolute insanity – it’s my 21st birthday in the next little while, I have 4 assignments left (2 of them due tonight!) and tomorrow will be my last day at university – EVER! Where have the past 3 years gone? Today I just wanted to share…
