little beginnings...

 are starting to blossom.

There have been new beginnings all round these last few months.  Least of all, this little glimpse into something so wonderful, so perfectly right that I'm just bursting to share.  I'm secretly hoping you'll be smitten it too!

There has been travels and exploring; learning new things and finding my creative rhythm.  It's been quite the journey of discovery with moments of pure happiness.  Treasured moments...a clarity I've not felt in such a long time.

I have so very much to share...

has been unbelievably hot...the sticky, muggy, can't-get-comfortable kind of hot!

finding 'cool' with the blues around me...
the sea so beautiful
and flowers gathered from the garden against my blue wall

January has been beginnings and little celebrations.
 This year holds hope of all sorts of wonderful.

Wishing you happy in the months ahead too x

something special

I knew this would be something so special it would be incredibly difficult
I knew that I'd want them to be just so
They are for my love and I after all

Save the Dates...horribly overdue but just right...I think!

farm days...

One of my favourite places to be is my dear friend's farm.  Being that we live at opposite ends of the earth, spending time in this place is extra special.  This time it was a little different...I had semi planned this trip, although didn't commit to it until ten days before leaving home (the benefits of my every day world) for various reasons.  She on the other hand, had no idea I was coming!  This meant we just did 'farm things' (although we did squeeze in a few delicious meals out and about!)...we did the 'everyday' on the farm and I loved every minute of it.

We picked wild blackberries and took to the orchid for apples to make apple and blackberry crumble for sunday dinner.  We watched as a new calf, born during the night, was tendered to by its mother.  We played in the farm sheds with the dogs and wandered taking in the last of summer.

It was bliss and I hope my next visit isn't too far away because four and half days there just wasn't long enough!

I had a little surprise to deliver at the end of August...

I travelled 16516km to deliver my little parcel...a surprise for my best friend to celebrate a milestone birthday!  It wasn't the easiest of trips and it was lightening fast but we had fun.  We laughed and we chatted until all times of the night and we had bubbles...lots of celebratory bubbles!

And I got to see and hug the sweetest of little people who are growing up way too fast...we had long summer days on the farm...doing farm type things.  We ate...far too much.  It was all sorts of wonderful and I would do it all again in a heartbeat (and I'm secretly hoping it won't be too long before I can...minus the surprise bit!)

so fleeting...

Spring in all its wonder and magic is just a matter of weeks in these parts.  I love this season for all its pretty and the warmth in the air.  Wandering up on the mountain once more to celebrate all that is beautiful at this time of time of year is always a treat.

I really can't believe it was over a year ago since our posy how the days and months are flying by!
