Gardening with Kids {Planting a herb garden} | For the Kids

About a month ago I went to the local farmer's market with my sister, and while we were there I found a little Cayenne chilli plant for only $5 so I bought it for Dave. He'd been talking about wanting to start growing his own chillis, as he uses so many of them in his cooking he figured he may as well try growing them too.

Document Your Days {For Future Generations} | Photography

"Photography is an art of observation. It has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them."
 - Elliott Erwitt

The little girl in the image at the start of this post is my Mum. She's about 4/5-ish in this photo. She sits on the floor of someones lounge room, playing. There isn't a lot to giveaway the time and date of the photograph save the old-school fireplace & TV she's sitting next to. She sits the way Punky often sits now when she is playing.

Picture This... {March 2016} | Life

March was a busy month, with Easter, trips to the beach, chilli planting, illness & work. I took a lot of photos, two thousand and twenty-four to be precise, so I thought it only fitting to do those thousands of images justice and share just a few of my favourites from the month. Don't worry, I didn't include all two thousand!

Twelve & Thirteen {2016 52 week project} | Photography

{Sisters - Week 12} - On Good Friday Dave had to work so it was just me and the girls having a quiet one at home. In the afternoon I decided we could all do with getting out of the house for a bit, so we headed to our favourite park to waste the last hour before Daddy got home playing, climbing and sliding.

Family Dinner Night {Part One} | Life

Every week we attend two family dinners. One is with my family, at my Mum's house. The other is with Dave's family, at his Mum's house. It's a totally normal thing to me. We've been doing it for years. I look forward to Family Dinner every week. It's a chance to decompress. Discuss what's happening in our lives. Spend time together. Laugh. Relax.

Watching the girls spend time with their Aunties & Uncles & cousin is something that I enjoy immensely. I don't take my camera to every Family Dinner, but more often than not I have it with, ready to document these moments so that we can look back on them in the years to come and remember what life was like.
