I'm back!

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 ;)


  1. glad you are back! we've missed you around here. it's always hard to get back into the swing of things. especially after such a huge experience. i truly hope i can meet you one day...i so wish i hadn't missed the get together!

  2. So glad to see you pop back up in my reader but we will await your return from your family holiday patiently!

    Have a fabulous time xx

  3. I totally understand how hard it can be to organize your thoughts and get them out in a blog post after an overwhelmingly good time.
    You are amazing - and it sounds like your time in the states was so good!
    What I would have given to have hugged you and met you in person...
    Sending many thoughts and prayers as you continue in this busy/fun/planning season of your life!!!

  4. you are now removed from my list...

    and yes it was because I missed you! :)

  5. It's so good to see you blogging a bit!! You have had (and are still having) so many adventures, I'm sure it's intimidating to even think about where to start blogging about them! XO
