Chase the Sun

{Chase the Sun, print available here}

This summer has been all about chasing the sun.
We haven't seen it that often;
after our fabulously hot and sunny spring 
that had us swimming at the outdoor pool in November,
we all thought we were in for another long hot summer.
However, it feels like we are waiting for it to arrive.
When we do have the hot sunny days, 
we chase the sun,
to the coast,
to the beach,
to the pool.

When it streams in through the windows at various times of the day
I find the kids turning their faces to it,
or sitting in the sunniest chair to soak up the warmth.

Sunshine,
please show us your gorgeous rays.
We love you so.

New Work - road trip inspired



I am really inspired right now,
we have been out to the coast a few times, 
and there is something about being a passenger in the front seat
that gets my creative juices flowing.
I have pages of little sayings I plan to use on beach photos,
all inspired by conversations and musings in the car.

Here are the first 2 of the new series,
I hope you enjoy them!

2013 - in Instagram


I had hoped to post this yesterday,
but the day got away on me. 
These photos are from Instagram,
and I made myself choose 
one from each month of 2013.
It was hard to pick just one,
but each of these sums up how I felt about that month.
It's funny looking back on a year in pictures,
things that felt so long ago weren't actually,
and vice versa.

I am so grateful to Instagram, 
and the ability we have with modern technology 
to capture our moments.

2013, you were fun.
The highlight (in adventure terms)
would have to be our trip to Melbourne,
to visit family, and see Of Monsters and Men play.

I wonder what adventures 2014 will bring?

Christmas Eve


It's Christmas Eve, and the excitement levels are
oh so high!
Annabel and Otis are trying their hardest to go to sleep,
treats have been left out for Santa, and his reindeer.
There are presents underneath the fire place 
for Santa, Miss Clause, the elves and the reindeers ~
made, wrapped and then decorated by 2 children
who have been busy for weeks.
I love this time of year.

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas
and festive season,
from my family to yours,
however you celebrate,
where ever in the world you are.
