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.

Long lasting friendships

Just had to post pics, from our Friday fondue evening for memory keeping.  A fun-filled evening with awesome food, and quality time with friends who'm we have known since our girls became best friends at 18 months old.  I admit the dresscode leaves much to be desired - it's a long story, why we always have to wear serviettes on our heads, but it's stuck nonetheless, and every year we seem to get more and more ridiculous.....this year we funked it up a bit with some cool, hip and happening SUNNIES  - ISH!!

I cherish the fact that we have stayed close and in contact, and that we are watching each others children grow up...i LOVE that I have known Tom from before he was even born, and have such fond and vivid memories of the first time I ever laid eyes on him as a newborn (feels like yesterday). I can remember Kate as a little girl, regularly climbing into my car with her Spiderman socks on - totally mismatched to the rest of the outfit :-),....on Friday she wore an outfit especially for me - sweet thing.

I love the fact that my children have friends that they have literally grown up with - I think that is a priviledge and the kind of friendships you cherish.....  
Dom, Tom, Kate and Sabrina
I often wonder where and how these 4 kiddies, who love each other dearly, will be in 10 years time......
And whether we've inspired them to always remember to dress better make time for each other, their families, their friends, and to sieze every opportunity to create wonderful memories.... 
Kate and Sabrina 
Indirectly, it was these two little girls who brought us all together...in life, you just don't always know where wonderful things will come from:-)
