I indulged in a super long extended summer break this year... you may have noticed my absence from
facebook & blogging. I felt the lure of the ocean & the need to relax in the sunshine. I am sure my vitamin D levels needed a good boost!
Christmas was one of those hectic occasions again this year. We ended up being really busy with family commitments & by the time it was over I looked back & realised I had been too busy to take photos! I cannot believe it ~ I am usually the one who photographs everyone else & am rarely in the picture.
So when January arrived an escape to the beach was planned & we headed up to the north coast of New South Wales for a week then further up to Broadbeach for a long weekend. Days spent swimming in the warm ocean & catching up with friends, dining out on gorgeous seafood, people watching from cafes & wandering around markets buying fresh produce.
I had also made a commitment to myself that this year would be spent being a little more about me.
Sounds very indulgent doesn't it but us ladies are well known for putting ourselves last & family first... I have certainly done that over the years.
and there is nothing quite like walking barefoot in the sand to recharge yourself body & soul...
Around the home I've simplified & rearrange my shelf in the kitchen to include some favourite photos from our trip to Provence last year...
I've also been working in the garden. Our figs & lemons are growing well - love the gorgeous fruits that summer brings don't you?
some light summer reading... I bought this book from kikki.K - love the organisation in this shop. I have only just started reading it but I am hoping it will help me organise my time more this year.
See you soon with an Easter update for the shops...
