imageI love pretty little things, especially when it comes to food.  Melbourne has turned on its A-game this week with some stellar steamy weather.  Speaking of weather, I’ve been feeling a bit under it today so I popped off to the store today in my summer dress (it’s really too hot for clothes, just saying) to pick up a few things, ran into lovely Bev and had a chat, she’s my Nans age and just the loveliest woman (hope I’m half as cool as her when I’m her age, she’s got a heart of gold).

I was inspired recently by my sister in law as she is turning 30 this year and she listed some significant things that have happened in her 20’s.  It made me think, what have the last (almost) 10 years on my life looked like.  Facebook is a wonder for this stuff as I scrolled through the years and looked at all the interesting (and not so interesting) things that I had posted about I was reminded about many things that I had forgotten about.  It is amazing what kind of perspective this brings to looking over the last 10 years of my life as it gives the most beautiful perspective.

Walking in the warm sunshine with the gentle wind blowing, blue skies and a yummy green apple to munch on, this is one of my favourites of life simple pleasures.  It’s the simple things in life that bring the most joy and a sense of deep peace and rest.  Sometimes you just have to open your eyes and look for the goodness that simply abides daily all around us.

Parisian memoir.

“Paris is for lovers!”


I remember heading out for my first night in Paris.  I had arrived earlier that morning and spent the day pottering around.  But now I was fed, had my warm winter jacket on, my camera and I was ready. Continue reading “Parisian memoir.”
