Really Important Things...

Lately I've been doing a lot of really important things... extremely important things.

Important things like having tasty holiday treats with my girls...



Taking roadtrips to Auckland to visit family and precious friends...







Extremely important things like hugging our kids (one of whom just went to China and back this past few weeks - read about it here)...




And sweeping driveways...




And making new friends...



Then there's coffee... always extremely important...



And crochet - a vital activity to remain sane...




On a side note you may have noticed the movie I was watching whilst doing my very important crochet... during these school holidays I introduced my 2 girls to the various versions of Pride & Prejudice and am proud to say that they are hooked!  Currently working our way through the different versions of Emma now!


Also working our way through renovations in our dining room...




And then there are hairdoos - I'm one of those lazy people who only visits a hairdresser once a year I'm ashamed to admit...




So many reeeeaaaaaally important things I've been up to lately - well, in actual fact these are the sorts of things that I usually don't think of as important but in actual fact they are.  

Family, friends, self-care and making special memories - all things we can so often neglect.  Here's to making more time for these things in our busy lives and making sure we have our priorities straight.




Make sure you make time this week to do some really important things.

21 Years!

A couple of days ago we celebrated 21 years of marriage... and many years of various hair styles as well!


















A couple of weeks ago we celebrated early by travelling to Auckland for the night and seeing Indiana Jones (Raiders of the Lost Ark) playing with a live orchestra in the Civic Theatre!  It was an awesome experience and the Civic is such a beautiful theatre.






Of course we made time for Bubble Tea, catching up with special friends, feeding the local birds, and most importantly of all, visiting my Dad and Mum while my Dad is being treated in Auckland Hospital. 








No trip to Auckland is complete with a little visit to one of Bluebells Cakery's stores!





These past 21 years have flown by, but when I take a moment to look back at different stages it seems like worlds of adventures and memories stacked together to make a crazy collage of married life.

I am so thankful to God that I met this amazing guy all those years ago.

Love you so much Mr Symon Burton Drake!!
