30/365 Days of Photos

Something sparkly on Sunday!

I have a very busy week ahead with lots to starts tomorrow & it's my baby first year! The first week is always the toughest and I am also going to two gigs this week; Sia and Tool.

I am going to take a week off blogging to allow time to get myself into a routine again. I will still be taking a picture a day for my 365 days project and I will post them when I return. 

I will miss you all my lovely blog friends and hope you have a week of happiness ♥

Skye - My cheeky monkey, who refuses to remove her Australia day flag tattoo.

I am quite proud of the catchlights in her eyes  - I have done no editing on them and they are shinning like bright blue stars.

Good news, my husband is going to buy me a new camera lense for my birthday next month. I am so excited, I could pee my pants!

I was feeling creative today when I arranged this shot. I found inspiration at we♥it!

24/365 Days of Photos

On Monday we had a surprise visitor when our next door neighbour’s puppy dug a hole through the fence.  Millie was the cutest thing, and the children enjoyed playing with her until her owners got home from work. They were very grateful she that she was well looked after, brough over a box of chocolates, to say thank you ☼

Sunday afternoon movie in Phoenix and Skye’s shared bedroom.. Please excuse the mess, it’s been almost impossible to keep that room clean while the kids are home on school holidays.
I needed some time away for the computer yesterday, so now I need to play catch up with my 365 days of photo’s project.

22/365 Days of Photos

My beautiful best friend who is also my cousin, Leeann! Words just can’t describe how special she is. If everyone had a best friend like this, the world would be a better place ♥

This picture was taken in a playground on the beach in Port Melbourne yesterday.

This Saturday I'm grateful for...January

This Saturday I am grateful for the month of January. Everything has slowed down and life feels simpler. The madness of Christmas is over and the children are still home on school holidays. Lots of sleep ins, and lazy days at home. I feel more relaxed and at peace with myself. The sun is shining and the temperature is heating up. I’ll be visiting my best friend this afternoon, and a trip to beach is in my future.

Happy Weekend everybody!

Day Twenty One - 365 days of Photos

Heart shaped cupcake sprinkles, aren't they pretty?

Day Twenty - 365 days of Photos

I don’t have a day twenty picture to show you, the universe was working against me yesterday. When I picked up my camera to take a picture yesterday afternoon somehow the focus settings had been changed and I couldn’t get my Canon 50D to focus in the right spot. My husband‘s good with the technical side of things so I waited for him to come home.

By the time he got home, dinner was made, kids bathed I handed him the camera to fix. A quick Google search later and Reuben fix the focus and then the battery died. Silly me forgot to keep the spare battery charged too.

 I can’t really skip a post in my 365 days of photos so here is one I took the other day. I'll be back later today to post day 21 picture and to comment on my favorite blogs ♥

Day Eighteen - 365 days of Photos

Today I am exhausted! I woke four times last night wheezing. If I could change anything about myself I would have a different set of lungs, ones that are asthmas free.

Day Fourteen - 365 days of Photos

Skye's first bike - Happy 5th Birthday Sweet-pie ♥

I almost didn't post today, just couldn't get the lighting right for the shot I wanted. It rained all morning and then the sun came out. Our backyard look like a giant mud pit, the cobble stones was the only place safe to try out her bike this afternoon.

Day Eleven - 365 days of Photos

Raining in Melbourne - My heart is breaking for those in affected by the floods ♥

Cold War Kids

Last Tuesday night, my friend Mer and I headed to the Forum in Melbourne to see Cold War Kids live. I have liked the Cold War Kids even since Twilight the movie came out.  I was quite obsessed with all things Twilight and read a blog post about Catharine Hardwick’s favourite music.  On the list, was the Cold War Kids and I check out them out and fell in love with the music. It’s rather funny whenever I told anyone I was going to see the Cold War Kids most of my friends didn’t know how they are.  That happens a lot, must mean I have unique music tastes. 

We started the night with a beer and a pub meal and ended to the venue. We got the so early, it was almost empty.  The support band was great, an Australian band from Sydney. Unfortunately I can’t remember their name.  By the time the support act left the stage, the whole place was full. Mer and I were lucky and found our spot in six rows from the front. Then the Cold War Kids came one and rocked the house! They were truly amazing and played a fantastic range from their old albums. They also play a lot from their new album that doesn’t come out until 25th January.

Day Ten - 365 days of Photos

I took 67 photographs today, I kid you not. Mostly of new products that might take months for me to get around to editing and adding to my store. This one was so lovely, with Skye’s beautiful eyes looking up at me. So it became the photo of the day!

Cameron's First Birthday

We had a lovely day at Cameron’s First Birthday party yesterday. Ash and Mer are not only proud parents of baby Cameron they were the perfect hosts.  I ate lots of tasty food and drank lots of bubbles. With Great friends and uplifting conversations, all the children ran around having fun all afternoon. Mother nature was kind too, with the heat of the day ending and the cool change beginning when  the party to started.

Day Six - 365 days of Photos

It’s been a while since I have taken a self portrait…. I won’t go into the reason why. Mystery is sometimes a good thing. Can you see the red in my hair? My husband dyed it for me last week, it's faded heaps since then but it still there and it covers the greys which is most excellent ♥

Day One - 365 days of Photos

I am a terrible blogger at times. I seem to get forget to post regularly. I love to post, and to check out the posts of my favourite blogs. I could spend more than 3 hours a day doing it, if I let myself. So I try not to blog unless I have the spare time, and I have discovered how little time I have to myself. With the three kids, the business and my beautiful husband sometime I don’t do things just for me much as I would like.

This year I want to do something for me, once a day for a year. I am going to take a picture and post it on my blog. It will help develop my photography skills, and see the beauty around me.
