“A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2014.”

Saxon: that hair!
Caelan: doing countless laps around the trampoline.

Well, my Christmas shopping just got a lot easier! Why we don't already have a trampoline is beyond me.

Missing Daddy





Upon arrival to the lake, Caelan cried that he missed his daddy, that he wanted him to come home. So, i wrapped him and Saxon in a wooly blanket and we sat, then we spoke about the places daddy used to take us when he was home. It was nice to talk about something other the missing him, because it's all we've been doing since he left.. The lake was calm and still, and so was my mind & my heart, for the first time this week. Three months better fly past, because missing the one you love is so hard.

Our road trip to Melbourne
























In July we set out from our quiet coastal town for the busy city of Melbourne to celebrate our friends engagement party. We planned for a 9 hour drive, stopping occasionally to stretch our legs and feed our tummies, but that plan slowly turned into a 12 hour car trip….and i just happened to forgot the Frozen DVD!

We stayed in the Novotel on Collins St, right in the heart of Melbourne. We did the tourist thing, Cay and I went on the City Circle Tram, but within 5 minutes he fell asleep on my lap…but it was a nice, quiet (bumpy, squishy) ride around the city for me. We scoped out the shopping but as much as i would have loved to splurge on clothing i spent a good amount at A─ôsop and my skin loves me for it. This store on Flinders Lane was architecturally designed from industrial-grade cardboard and it looked amazing - it's a must see if you visit Melbourne.

The lane ways and hideaway cafes were so laid-back and funky. Our favourite coffee spot was Degraves Lane & the best restaurant that we stumbled upon was The Meat & Wine co - amazing food!

On our way home we stopped in at Brighton Beach. These beach huts have been on my bucket list since i was little so i was incredibly happy. We couldn't leave until Caelan tried to get past every lock on each hut..

So there ends our little holiday, and i'm ready to go back! Of course next time we'll fly.

Melbourne, you're one cool city.
