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.

A happy to my husband.

Yesterday, the 27th July, was my DH's birthday.  I felt blessed to have spent another year with this kind and gentle man, - this person i share my life, my children, my hopes and dreams with.  I always, always pray on his health - to me that is the most precious gift anyone can have.  Second to that, I hang on tight to my hopes of him achieving his goals, he works so hard towards, daily. 

I give thanks for the inner strength of this man, his character and values, that are the reason why he is well loved by all who know him.  His perserverance and determination are a sure sign that he'll go the distance no matter what....his understanding and control are like my lighthouse in the eye of a storm, but he is also vulnerable, where I am strong....I guess that makes us a great match:-). 

As we've grown older, we've grown closer, we've surfed big, scary waves together, and learnt hard lessons from some of those waves, but all for the good of growth and meaning in our life, and journey together.

Our CC girls rocked the "Happy Birthday" song across to his breakfast table, where he was sitting with his "man friends".....here's to many more my special man!
