A while back, I had a conversation with my Dad. He talked about how important photos were to him. How his collection of photos from his marriage and our childhood are his memories and that he loved to have a house full of photographs because that’s what made it feel like a home.

I don’t share my Dad’s sentiment in having a house full of photos. I kind of feel like people are staring at me through the frames… Weird, eh? But I do see his point in collecting memories. Having something to reflect on as time goes by and our family grows.

So, inspired by my Dad and the constant nagging in my head to “Take more photos!!”, I’ve decided that once a month, I’m going to post up a collection of images from around my house and my life.
I’m looking forward to seeing them change as we add to our family. These images will be real and unstyled, so you’re going to have to forgive the dirt on my floors and my make-up-less face. Real life and all that.


My solid intention to start making bandana dribble bibs for our little cub. The sewing machine has been sitting on our dining room table for about 2 months now. Untouched.


A nightly ritual of rubbing Lush’s Therapy Bar all over my big ole 29 week preggo belly.


The place I keep my makeup brushes and chunk of fools gold… Of course.


The mosquitos are back! The only thing for it? Burning citronella oil outside our bedroom window.


Jewels… And as you can see on my bedside cabinet, a mega size bottle of Gaviscon. Midnight heartburn is a bitch.


Since Gavin planted our little nectarine tree (Godfrey) in the garden, he’s been holding up good and popping out these little bad boys… Hopefully soon to mature into fat, juicy fruit.

Gavin bought me this picnic basket on a whim last year and it’s had all of about 5 outings. Now we have a front garden and I’m due to go on maternity leave from Christmas, I plan to have tons of solo lunch picnics on the grass, under the lucky bean tree.

What’s been going on in your world lately?

Love and gingerbread,
