A Cabin in the Woods

My childhood was spent exploring the woodland surrounding my home, building huts and little hidey holes. So, it comes as no surprise that I am  kinda obsessed by  woodland cabins and country hideaways. 

I dream one day that we may have something like this near our Victorian Alpine region...I can dream right??  I have picked a selection of my favorite Pinterest finds....just because!

Missing in Action

It has been some time since I wrote  anything on my little tiny corner of the world wide web.
I have sat down on a number of occasions to write something but there was always too many other things going on in my head to focus on what seemed to be frivolous in the grand scheme of things.

Late last year we lost our wonderful nephew very suddently. He was just 15 years old and it turned my Aussie family upside down. He was a wonderfully vibrant, fun loving young man who really did light up any room he walked into. We miss his laugh and bright smile every day, but we will always have that memory to cheer us up in our sad moments.  We love you lots..and your always in our thoughts!

It's cliché but it really does make you appreciate the little things in life and how important the people close to you are. Hug them all tightly guys.
