My mind has been racing lately. I have been thinking about establishing traditions to celebrate this special time of year with our little family. Trying to keep it all meaningful and magical and trying not to get trapped with all the consumerist stuff….Read More
Sometimes we all get lucky to combine travel with work.
I was working on a wedding in Jervis Bay, a place that means so much to us.
It’s where we got engaged, we spend many romantic weekends away as well as time with both our families.
We saw the sunrise over the the ocean the first day of the year and have so many special memories that connect us to this magical little spot.
This was the first time we brought Faye along and it made my heart jump to see how much she loved it here too.
We had two little beach excursions to either side of my work day.
While short they were extra sweet.
We got just enough sun, ocean dips and built sandcastles for hours.
We immediately had the holiday feeling of pure relaxation and letting go when we arrived.
Our cute little Airbnb was so cozy and made us dream of a little house just like it.
Dave was really in photo mode and kept snapping away (which is also a sign for him to be in a good and relaxed mood)
With all the photos to go through I happened to re-live every moment of this weekend while making a selection for our blog.
We got up early on Sunday morning and made it to the last day of this years Sculptures By The Sea. It was so worth it, while it was tricky to keep Faye’s little fingers of the artworks that had a “no touch” sign, it was such a great exhibit to go to with little ones. So much open space and opportunity to run around. Many artworks were also allowed to be touched, climbed or explored.
Sipping pineapple juice in the sun, seing amazing art with Ocean view… We truly are living in paradise.
Its the busiest time of year for me and I amaze myself how we somehow still make family time in between all the hustle. I am def loosing out on sleep these days working until late at night but its worth freeing up a few hours here and there to all do something fun together.
Faye’s favourite were clearly the large African animals that climbed out of manholes. She kissed the Tiger and was fascinated with the Elephants feet.
I love love love her age right now. (don’t I always say that?) It’s really fun to take her out and about now and she is getting more and more curious about the world.

A big hug from all of us to you! Thanks for following along.
Happy Birthday to the greatest man I know! You are my everything!
If you have been following along and have known us for a while you would know that I love love love birthdays and Dave is a bit of a grinch when it comes to Christmas and birthdays.
(He recently promised me to up his game and get into the swing of things a little more…)
