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!!

Lately...

February ended up being a rather difficult month, but one where I continuously found myself declaring this...



Here are a few bright and happy moments from the last month, because I always love to remember these moments, in the midst of the difficult ones...

Moments like homemade coffee...



And breakfasts with your raccoon toy...



Our children's school took part in a couple of festivals celebrating Asia & China recently.  Soon (next month), this guy below will be travelling to China with some of his class!



Sushi cones... where have you been all of my life?



Loving sibling catch ups...



And making new friends on an evening walk...



Love our library cafe and the free magazines...



Metal straws - one way we can cut down on all the plastic!



It was pretty amazing to come across this Stick Insect the other morning - we haven't seen one of these for years!



A pretty new picture to brighten up the gloomy days we've had around here lately...



Little coffee badges - so cute!



After a recent viewing of Napoleon Dynamite, we suddenly have a pet llama named "Tina" in our family...



Loving my city...




So much to love and be thankful for.
