So I am on this amazing + dear ladies list..
Because I haven't blogged in too long and perhaps, just perhaps maybe she misses me too?!
So here I am. back + blogging... It's been only two weeks since I have returned from my month long trip to the States and yet it seems so much longer. I've wanted to blog to share photos (while wishing I had taken more) but truthfully I have just been a little swamped ...
a fiances birthday, a mothers birthday, a brothers birthday, a wedding (in which M was a groomsmen + quite involved), a school rowing regatta, a brand new car of his with a $1,200 problem (luckily still covered under warranty), some frustrating banking problems (both with M + my accounts) lots of wedding preparations + appointments, last minute trips to find Paige a dress for the wedding, a suddenly falling down formal dress - thank goodness for Hollywood tape + bra enhanchers is all I can say... and lots + lots of running here and there.
I feel like I don't even know where to begin.
What I can say is I have been super blessed by my trip to the States. + I'm still trying to process it all! Super blessed to have met the most amazing bunch of women ever - who have given me so so much - inspiration, encouragement, beautiful memories and lasting friendships. I totally adore each and everyone one!!
and I feel I have grown so much since my trip too! To say I stepped out of my comfort zone boarding a plane to another country, leaving mine for the first time and meeting up with a bunch of women I had never met in real life before is kinda an under statement.. like I told Leslie I don't think I even thought about it too much - I just did it - crazy I know! But now I know I am capable and able to do big things, to stretch myself and just go for it. + I have the sweetest bunch of real life girlfriends because of it.
see all this rambling? It's because I just can't seem to sort all thats floating around in my brain out.
So stay tuned for photos and blog posts as I try and sort out the most amazing trip and get back into the swing of normal life...
oh but did I mention we leave tomorrow morning for our last family vacation? + that by Saturday I will be relaxing beside a pool on a tropical island off the coast of Brisbane with my family and our 'extended family members' - hmmm maybe 'normal' is still a little while off yet ;)
