Cruise with me baby {on the Carnival Spirit} | Travels

The worst thing about going on holidays is that they have to end. And they go so fast.

When you're preparing and packing it feels like it will take a lifetime to get ready. No matter how long you're going away for, you can't imagine the end of your holiday. And then suddenly, the day of departure arrives, and then just as suddenly, it's time to head home.

And so it was with our 10 night cruise. The lead-up to the cruise and all the packing and getting ready seemed to take forever! It felt like we would never actually step foot on that big boat. But step foot we did, and boy oh boy, did the holiday go waaaaay too quickly!

Cruisin' {a quick post for IBOT} | Travels

I'm hoping that I'll get a chance at some stage to upload some photos from our cruise so far, but just in case I don't I thought it best to at least make sure I got the linky up for you guys.

Shooting through 2017 {August} | #52weekproject

As you read this, I will most likely be running around in a state of sickened anticipation, checking & double-checking my list to make sure that I haven't forgotten anything for our trip. We leave today to spend 10 nights cruising around the south pacific and I can't wait! So you won't really hear much from me over the next two weeks, but rest assured, I'll have more than a few photos & stories to share with you when I get back.

So while I'm sitting on a train or the dock convinced we've forgotten something important, please enjoy the images from August that are part of my 52 week project...

Counting down... {and cutting hair} | Life

The countdown is on to our big family cruise holiday. My Mum turns 60 on Sunday, and two days later Mum & my stepdad, along with my sisters, brother, Dave & the girls and my nephew & brothers-in-law will board the Carnival Spirit for 10 nights of cruising to the South Pacific.

To say we're all excited would be an understatement! There's a sense of nervous anticipation amongst us as we complete our on-line check-ins, make packing lists & wash clothes and look forward to the day of embarkation. This will be the girls first "big" holiday, and the longest we've travelled with them. They have been counting down the days with glee, and I think this next week or so is going to be the hardest for them. They keep asking how many sleeps until we leave, and as the numbers dwindle the anticipation ramps up.
