Things I want to remember {last days of summer} | Life

Can you believe today is the last official day of summer?! I'm sure March has got a few hot days still up her sleeve, but for the most part, the weather the last week has been positively gorgeous! Honestly though, anything that isn't 47 degrees is pretty gorgeous!

It's been a long, hot summer but despite the heat it's been one of our best summers in a while. We didn't get up to a great deal, but we spent lots of time together as a family and outside and that's all that really matters.

What I've learnt {since becoming a School Mum} | Parenting

"I will admit I spent a good amount of time the other weekend after Punky started school looking back at old photos and videos and just couldn't believe that this incredible part of our life was over! It's really bizarre, when I was going through it, dealing with toddlers & preschoolers and just generally all the shenanigans that came with having two kids at home, it felt like it would never end. And now it suddenly has and I don't know how I really feel about it. It's almost a bit like grief to be honest. A bittersweet kind of grief because, on the one hand, there is this pride in seeing my little one go off to school and navigate such a huge life transition, as well as excitement at the fact that I can actually see my lounge room floor these days for more than 30 seconds. But on the other hand is this realisation that our life will never be like that again, we've turned a corner, closed a door, started a new chapter, and it's all kinds of sad & scary. Parenting really is the ultimate in contradictions!"

Shooting through 2017 {January 16-31} | 52 week project

Can you believe it's mid-February already?! Ever since Punky started school it feels like time has just suddenly sped up! Which is slightly weird, you would think it would drag a bit now, what with all the lunches and things to remember every day, but no.
