Nicola’s First Birthday

What a day….what a glorious, wonderful, beautiful day. All week we had been looking at the weather and after many prayers we received the most glorious gift – a bright sunny day with a perfect breeze. We started setting up the backyard very early and asked nonna (Dave’s mum) to take Nicola and Luca whilst […] Read more…

Lots to be grateful for…

I’m getting very sentimental as we approach Nicola’s first birthday. She’s growing up so quickly, infact, our whole family is – physically and emotionally. As each day passes, each of us are getting stronger, more independent whilst keeping close to our bond. Luca starts school soon and Nicola has already started daycare. Life moves on. […] Read more…

15 resolutions – what’s yours?

January is always a tough month – we’re back at work, starting a new year from scratch and probably on a diet or a detox. For many of us, we start the new year with high hopes of changing an aspect of our lives – giving up something that is naughty is always something high […] Read more…

Welcome 2015

I’ve been MIA for the past 2 weeks for a good reason – I’ve just had a fantastic holiday…albeit only 10 minutes down the road at my dad’s place in South Curl Curl. My parents bought their apartment 10 years ago and its become the beach pad for us when they are not home. It’s honestly in the […] Read more…

I experienced the highs of my long awaited IVF baby, Nicola in January and the lows of loosing my mum to Pancreatic Cancer in May. I was also forced to make decisions about Nicola’s health and the […] Read more…

Cinders – our new family member

An impulsive but totally worth it early christmas present from Dave was a cockatiel named Cinders. We found her at Penninsular Pets at Warriewood Mall. It was only meant to be a quick “Lets look at the cute animals” stop in-between getting a santa photo and some lunch…but only fate knew it was meant to […] Read more…

Christmas Party Marathon

So far we’ve been to 4 Christmas parties in a week and we’re all very happy about it….but  completely exhausted. Its funny how this time of year you cram so much into one day but somewhere you find the energy. In hindsight, I’ve wanted to keep busy this Christmas.. its distracting me from the pain of not having […] Read more…

Cubby house on a rainy day

Its the simple things in life that are often the best. The kids have inherited my love of cubby houses and all things that make you feel cozy on a rainy day. Today we made one in the lounge room and watched the old start-stop animation christmas movies like Little Drummer Boy and Roudolf the […] Read more…

Luca Graduates from Kindalin

Oh boy the tears flowed tonight – the baby years are officially over – Luca graduated Kindergarten! The kids did a presentation of the songs they had learnt throughout the year and the teachers recited a lovely poem. I’m sad that Luca has finished this chapter of his life but excited for the next – […] Read more…
