A recap of 2018

I love looking back over the year to reminisce on all the amazing things that happened. Birthdays, wonderful travel, family celebrations, new career opportunities and changes around the house.
This year flew by so fast but we managed to fit a lot in!


Noah started school.  For the first time in 15 years I didn't have a child at home!









What a great year!  So many firsts + new experiences! 
Obviously this was just the highlights but overall it was a pretty easy year for us all.

 We made travel and time with each other a priority in 2018. I especially made a point in not getting caught up in being "busy" and really tried to be in the moment and slow down life as much as is possible with 3 kids + their full lives, a business and other commitments. It's the first time I have reached the end of the year without feeling exhausted and stretched in many directions.

Not every year will be like this but it was definitely what I needed this year.

How was your 2018? What was your highlight?

Christmas 2018 - Stills

Christmas is over for another year, I hope you had a wonderful day!

This year we celebrated with a Christmas dinner (instead of lunch) due to family work commitments. It was a novelty to have the day to ourselves before having the family over in the evening.

We opened presents, had a swim and pottered around. It was a lovely slow Christmas morning.

I've popped a few photos up of our day.....

Gold Coast Holiday - December 2018

Last week we drove up to the Gold Coast for a few days in the sun and a catch up with family before Christmas. 2 of the boys are already on school holidays so the holiday season has started early for us!

We stayed at RACV Royal Pines in a family suite, this was perfect for us as a family of 5 and a great central location for all the places we wanted to visit.

As we have family on the Gold Coast we spent our week catching up with them for dinner and also enjoying time at Dreamworld + Whitewater World together. (we had leftover passes to use from last year)  We had some great weather and it was the best way to kick off the school holidays. 

We went to the beach, browsed the shops and saw a movie (The Grinch - we all loved it!) at Pacific Fair and even found Santa on our travels. We left feeling rested + relaxed and ready to jump into all the Christmas celebrations.

I've popped up a few photos from our trip below......

Have your holidays started yet? What are you up to over the Christmas break?
