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.

All shook up....

Autumn is making her presence felt......
I was all shook up this April - in a good way...April was so so good to us this year....it came and went in a flurry of activity...mostly playful, mostly fun, very indulgent!  I LOVED every minute of the chaos that came and went with the time I got to spend with friends and family...it was soul food to say the least!  Although business was quiet everywhere...it kind of felt like our whole country had "permission to play".  The stress, trials and tribulations of our modern way of life, are condusive to more work, less play; I just felt so GRATEFUL for this chance to just colour OUTSIDE THE LINES for a while.....be frivolous....reIMAGINE...
Sights like this just make me giddy
My soul is so restored that I feel ready to invite the seriousness back in, with no hard feelings.... sometimes my serious side holds me back - it's a funny thing, but my children are looking at me through new eyes lately....that's what happens when your eyes have time to take each other in, when your words are unhurried, kind and thoughtful, and when your soul shines.....
  
Below are some pics to remember the happy times.....
There's a 'ROYAL HIGHNESS' in ALL of us

Our 'Royal Wedding High Tea' table made me swoon......... 
Camping restores my soul – it’s where I’m happiest.  No hotel lobby could match the contentment I feel when our little van drives out of our driveway on route to 'camp happy'.  When I know our children are outdoors from early morning, until late into the night, without any pressure, expectations and the trappings of modern life and society, I can't help but just smile all over.   I know my little chickens will remember these holidays forever…

Just as their Dad and I will.......


Just be...and play





Sweet sweet memories are made of this......
