Thank you Helen for introducing us to your lovely monthly series called Head & Heart! Life gets super busy that we often forget to sit down and really appreciate the people, things and opportunities we're surrounded with. So along with everyone else, I'm jumping on the H&H bandwagon and sharing my monthly life reflections here with you all.
My little family. The sound of Scarlet babbling gibberish in her cot every morning and my superhero of a husband who keeps proving himself to be the most patient, kind-hearted and loveliest human being in the world.
My job. Yes, as much as I complain about it and as much as I dread getting out of bed on work mornings, I'm ever so thankful that it pays dem' bills!
New friends. I love the creative community and I love that I've been able to get to know some of these ladies a lot more in the last month. They are ever so inspiring and always encouraging. Here's to many more Instagram friends!
What I've been thinking of //
This project Johan and I are working on. You guys will definitely get the low down very soon (I know I've kept you waiting for awhile!), but it really has taken us over a year to get our butts into 'action' mode.
Buying a house. I know I know, with house prices continually rising it's a pretty ridiculous thought but a girl can dream right?
What I'm excited for //
Once again, this project that hubby and I are working on. I'm seriously itching to share it with you guys!
Our family is taking a much needed break to Hamilton Island at the end of August. Counting down the days until I can wake up to this view for a whole week.
SPRING - bring. it. ON.
SPRING - bring. it. ON.
What I've been doing //
Planning a creative getaway with the ever so lovely Erika Rax.
Now that I've culled through a good number of books on my 'to-read list', I'm moving onto my 'to-watch' list. So far, I've covered August: Osage Country (Meryl Streep is amazing), Inside Lwellyn Davis and Her. Any other recommendations you guys can give me?
Spending as many sunny days and afternoons on the beach with little miss. It's crazy cold but we always make a point to bring some hot chocolate and cookies to warm us up.
What I've been reading //
Pretty much all of these books in the last few months.
What I've been spending my money on //
Food. Lately Johan and I (along with Scarlet) have spent a little bit more on food in the last few weeks. I blame winter and making us want to eat more!
Magazines - Alphabet Journal, Fete Press, Spaces, Frankie, Kinfolk, Hearth, Cereal... clearly I have an addiction.
Pieces of wood. Why? Secret - hush hush!
