Soupy times, cuddles and a magical book dining time

I do love being busy and I am always so full of new ideas and passion about my work that it's hard for me to sit still. However there are things that I miss in these crazy times, most of all:
Sleep! 2nd: The time to make healthy food, sit down to eat and eat well, 3rd: Time for cuddles and hanging out with my two fav boys in the world  and at last, number 4: Reading!

So I made some things priority no matter how busy everything felt, I bought some fresh flowers, and yummy groceries and cooked at home a few days in a row! Cuddles on the couch followed and also some earlier bed times.
All this was inspired by a brand new amazing healthy food cook book named "my darling, lemon, thyme..." which I found in my goodie bag at a wonderful evening that was all about a completely different book "Sapphire Skies" by Belinda Alexandra.
Through my job I got the last minute opportunity to attend a truly magical night at the Watson's Bay Boutique Hotel hosted by the wonderful Nat from the Eat Read Love blog.
I guess that was really the theme over the last weeks Eat, Read and LOVE.
It was a book launch dinner party, where the author was present and all tables were filled with Sydney's finest creative  talents, from photographers, bloggers, stylist, artists, editors, writers, entrepreneurs in many many fields ....
The photos of the event in this post are actually by the talented Photography By Nadean while all the at home pictures are as usual our own.
This night really inspired me on so many levels, and also showed me once again how important it is to make room to get together with great people.
While I haven't actually had the chance yet to start the book, (I will save it for times of travel and holiday!) I made time for some other important things and returned full of energy back to work with my wonderful clients.
Dave is filled with exciting new ideas too, which we will keep secret for a little while.
So it's all exciting times over here. The weather is still amazing while the evenings and mornings are getting cooler, which feels so refreshing.

Dalston our little man is still very busy loosing his teeth and cutting new ones while puberty hit him, being a little more cheeky, moody and demanding than usual, but then he just looks at us with his big brown eyes and little button nose, and he is learning new tricks all the time and we could never be angry at this little fluff-ball. He made our life so much better and we are so happy to have him.
