My Little Pony 35th Birthday Celebration | Life

When I was little I loved the cartoon My Little Pony.  I watched it all the time and I had some My Little Pony toys that I absolutely treasured. I remember coming home from school one day to find that my little sister and her friend had drawn all over my favourite pony with pen and I was devastated. There's nothing like a little sister to wreck all ya stuff!

Back in October I was sitting at my desk getting some work done when I got an email from a promotions company with information and a link to buy tickets to a special My Little Pony 35th anniversary celebration. As soon as I saw it I had to buy tickets for the girls and I because just like I was, the girls are both absolutely obsessed with My Little Pony.

Ibot {November 6th 2018} | IBOT

It's 2am Tuesday morning and I'm only just now getting this post done. I know I should have done it earlier in the day, but I was working on other things, and then, well, we decided to go down to the river so the girls could have a paddle, Dave could fish, and I could play around with my new lens a little more.

I don't regret it in the slightest.

10 of my Fave Aussie Blogger Instagram Accounts | Social Media

I've been blogging for almost 10 years now and in that time I've seen a LOT of bloggers come and go. A LOT! Which is sad, because I've always enjoyed reading the blogs of Aussie writers & parents but I totally understand why so many have decided to leave the space. Nevertheless, there is no shortage of great Aussie bloggers out there to find & read, and with their blogs come great Instagram accounts as well.

Today I want to share 10 of my fave Instagram accounts of Aussie bloggers. This is in no way an extensive list, there are so many more that I love & follow but for the purposes of not making this a ridiculously long blog list, I'm just going to share a couple of handfuls today. So, in no particular order...

Take me to the river | Life

Yesterday we had the most glorious spring weather. It was just perfect! The last 3 weeks have been crazy, weather-wise. If it wasn't pouring with rain it was steamy and humid. Or there were crazy storms with everything... thunder, lightning, hail, you name it.

So when today decided to pull out an absolute cracker of a spring day, with the temperature just right, and the most divine, fresh breeze? Well, we couldn't waste that weather indoors! So we grabbed the girls (and I, of course, grabbed my camera!) and we headed down to the river for a spot of exploring.

Capturing Life in 2018 {September} | 52 week project

And with this post, I'm all caught up with sharing my 52 week project photos.

At the end of every year I have all of the images printed in to a photo book and I now have those photos books sitting on a shelf in my office, right next to where I work. I love looking through them and seeing not only how the girls have grown, but how my skill as a photographer has grown too. It's a wonderful way to record those things, and I'm really looking forward to creating the photobook for 2018, I honestly think it's going to be my most favourite one yet...

Capturing Life in 2018 {August} | 52 Week Project

Hello! How are you? Did you all enjoy the week off last week? I know I did! We're in week 2 of the school holidays today and the girls are about to go and stay at my Mum's for a few nights and I must say, I'm looking forward to the break.

Granted, I'll be working all that time, but it will be nice to work without the constant interruption of small people asking for food!

Wedding Belles | Photography

Oh my gosh, this last week has been so hectic! I can tell we're getting down to the business end of the year because the pace of life just keeps getting quicker & quicker. I am so looking forward to the school holidays, and in particular, the long weekend coming up.

We're heading down to Albury to celebrate my cousin's 40th birthday and have a little time out with the family. It's exactly what we need to have a chance to slow down and recharge the batteries, ready for the last charge of 2018.
