Hello Lovelies. How was Christmas? We had such a wonderful time with my parents and all of our chickies at home in the nest, including our sweet granddaughter who was undoubtedly the star of the show. As we all sat around the dinner table, my husband noted that there were four generations of family together. How good is that? We are blessed indeed.
Hello dear ones and thank you for joining me here in my happy place for my final blog post of 2017. It’s been such a great year and I want to thank all of you for popping in to visit my kitchen, my family, my home and my heart. I am honoured to have you come and sit with me a while and share in my fanciful creations.
Good morning dear ones, are you getting excited about Christmas yet?
Today we broke out Bing Crosby’s Christmas carols which I freely confess caused a little flutter of the heart as I sighed out loud. Apart from being a baking stylist’s dream, Christmas really is a special time for me. I love everything about it. The music, food, presents (gift giving is wayyy up there in my love language), hustle and bustle and even the tacky store decorations…..well, maybe except tinsel…..yeah, I don’t like tinsel.
Good morning dear ones, thanks so much for dropping into my little happy place today.
In September two years ago, our precious son and his beautiful bride got married. (You can see their lovely vintage wedding here). Between August and December of that year we actually had five weddings! Hubby, being a minister, officiated at most of them, while I had the honour of styling desserts and cakes as well. Most of them were young friends of our son, so it was pretty special, albeit quite busy, being a part of such celebrations.
Good morning Lovelies, how was your week? I hope you are all able to take some time out over the weekend just to be still and breathe. Life surely runs at a hectic pace these days with barely a moment to stop and think a whole thought (or type a whole sentence!) These kiddies certainly keep me on my toes. Bless their dear hearts.
Good morning Lovelies. I’m sending this post from a cosy cabin tucked away in the bushland beside an untamed stretch of coast with my dear family and parents. Kangaroos freely roam the grounds and this morning I stumbled upon a wee joey with his head poked in mama’s pouch having his morning suckle. So precious. It’s wonderful to get away, even if it’s just for a few days. Hubby is officiating a wedding ceremony for one of his oldest friends, who is getting married at a local dolphin marine park. I’m looking forward to seeing such an unusual wedding.
Good morning Lovelies, and oh what a week it’s been. Hubby and son came home from their trek through Tassie and had some interesting tales to tell. Our adventurous, rock hopping, Legolas light foot, mountain climbing son hiked to the summit of Cradle Mountain and managed to send home some hair raising footage of himself a bit too close to the unstable, snow peaked sheer cliff which sent his mother into a bit of a spin…but otherwise he was pretty pleased with his efforts, especially since a few people told him he wouldn’t make it to the top. Well done mate. So proud. (Now that you are back on level ground!)
Good morning Lovelies. How’s things? The girls and I flew solo this week as hubby took our 18 year old son adventuring in Tassie for a dose of hiking, snow seeking, white water rafting and bush walks. He has worked so hard this year, often at three jobs, so we wanted to give him a pat on the back and tell him how proud we are of the amazing young man he is becoming.
