about me

My photo
Married to Nick for 13 years, with 2 children; Sabrina - 12 and Dominic - 11. I am a girlfriend through and through in that I love girly things and anything that celebrates the essence of being a woman. I love vintage, shabby chic, the country and try my best to do my bit for the environment. SO yes...we have 3 bins in our house and try our best to recycle! I believe that with everything in life, the closer we stick to nature, the better off we'll be. I would love to have a balance in life, but have learnt that balance is not always possible, so strive for significance instead, in the hopes that that will be just as meaningful, and the rest will hopefully follow.

It's Friday!!!  I can't HELP but celebrate and oooh and aaahh over the fact that it's weekend.  That's one big plus about my life as a working girl, versus when I was at home with babies full time.....Friday's become just that much more significant...that's a good thing right?  The not so great, make the great REEEALLLY AWESOME.  I've really worked hard this week, and that somehow always makes me feel even better about FRiDaY:-) :-) .  I've mentioned the work of Mark Gungor before - well I took the online survey, and turns out, I'm from "FUN COUNTRY" first, and second, from "PERFECT COUNTRY".....your home country defines a lot about what you thrive on, what drives you, what you're passionate about, what fils and soothes your soul....and I guess, yeah....if I'm totally honest, I have ALWAYS worked to live, not the other way around.  No matter how good I might be at my job, I will NEVER love a job as much as I love just enjoying life, loving and living it to the full - that is really part of my personal purpose and will ALWAYS take priority in my life.  I've realised that people from FUN COUNTRY do crazy things...even at home where noone can see them.....just for kicks...yep...that'd be me:-) 

Today is a FUN FRIDAY for me....I have 2 very precious friends popping in for tea this morning - just because WE CAN.......and this afternoon my soul sister Linnie will hopefully find some time to stop by, and spend some time hanging in my lounge, sipping tea out of rosy vintage cups...just like we used to....

sigh...so spring...so summer too

In between all this, I'll be focused and working...crazy eh? 

This evening we are hosting very dear family friends of ours for our annual "FUN-DO" (FONDUE) event.  What I really love about this event is that our two families have created a tradition together....a yearly event where it's just something that we do together, our two families.  It's so important to have traditions within a family, but also in friendships...it kind of just cements things??....So at this event, we cook, we chop veggies and prepare food together, we laugh, we dance, we share, we do crazy fun things with our kids, we fondue at our FUN-DO...we make memories that will tie us together, always.....

Have a super duper happy festive crazy weekend...
