Yah! I'm Back...

I can't believe I have not blogged in such a long time.  The last few weeks have just been ridiculously busy with the end of school etc etc.  BUT, now it is holidays and I have got lots to share.  

First of all, my house is all about Christmas now.  The tree went up and was decorated on the 1st of the month.  This photo just doesn't do our tree justice, it is really beautiful (even if I say so myself).

We have a tradition in our house with our tree.  Every time we travel somewhere we collect a decoration, or two for the tree.  Then, when we decorate it we get to remember all the great times we've had and the places we've seen etc.  We've also got very old decorations on there from Anthony's mum and my nan and decorations from when I was a kid etc.  We have decorations from people whom we love and loved.    

I wanted to share two of our new decorations from this year.  First, this gorgeous glass Minnie Mouse Ball from Disneyland Paris. Minnie Mouse is my favourite Disney character.

And this ball that we got in London.  It has all famous London sights etc around it and it is colourful and pretty.  

The best thing about our tree is it is absolutely unique and personal to us and it triggers memories and talk about our life together.


  1. I was blown away when I opened Tylers art book and portfolio! Wow you guys must have been working 24/7 for the last few weeks! They look awesome and will be treasured for a very long time - as will the discs which are fantastic too!

  2. Thanks for the kind words Jessica, prep is such an important year of school, the kids deserve the special stuff. I know I treasure my kids prep folio etc.


I would love to hear any comments you may have about my blog, even just a hi to let me know someone is reading it!
