Farewell 2014

Already we have come to the end of 2014, and the New Year is bursting at the seems with new opportunities and adventures. Today I would like to acknowledge the year that has past before throwing open my arms to accept the fresh New Year.

My husband had a terrible year with his health, it began with a ride on mower accident, we had that terrible fall, a torn rotator cuff and then the dislocated finger, eww. With each of these difficult times, we were given amazing new lessons to learn, we found we have the most tremendous friends who are happy to help at a moments notice, we found strength we didn’t think we had, and we found peace in each other.



2014 brought a wonderful adventure with the sale of our house and the purchase of our home.


I am on the journey of styling our home.


We had our daughter turn 18!


And 2 children graduate from primary school.

We had broken collar bones.


Football grand final wins.


We were reminded to sit in gratitude for all that we have


2014 was a year of change for our family, all positive, with lessons learnt and love grown.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each of my readers for taking time out of your busy lives to share in our journey. We love our home, and are thrilled to be able to share it with others that enjoy what we do. May 2015 be a year of much love, health and happiness. I look forward to continuing to share this ride with you and building our little community of likeminded friends.
