Things I'm Loving...


I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is.  

Without sharing too much information, last week and this week have had their ups and downs.  I seriously didn't feel at all like posting last week, but I forced myself and guess what - if was so good to find things to be grateful and thankful for.  So here we go again!

Here are a few of the things I am loving at the moment...

Gluten free Fudge Brownies (although - I still think the original recipe is better)...


Our stunningly beautiful native New Zealand bush...


The fact that Symon loves this ghastly phone cover I crocheted on request (should make him a matching one of these to go with it!)...


How cute Barney is when he's sleeping...


Happy biscuits...


Winning this very cool vintage locket from a giveaway on RiceBabies...


Girls who dig machinery...


And Juggling Motherhood's tips for around the home... recognise those sweet boys at the washing line? Hehe.

See, that wasn't so hard for me to find something to be thankful for... now it's your turn!

Here's how you can join in....
Link up below with your blog post telling us what thing/s you are loving, and don't forget to link back to here in your post (or use this button below) and visit the others who have joined in too. Linky open until Sunday!!

  2. great photos :)

    what a beautiful necklace congrats

    that photo of your daughter digging the machinery reminds me of when Daniel was little and there was a bulldozer digging on the street we were living on then - dont know why it reminded of that but thanks for the memories :)

  5. Sorry to hear the past couple of weeks have been a bit tough. But like you said, posting 'Things I'm loving' in spite of everything else that might be going on around is exactly why we do it right?!

    Love that crochet phone cover and your happy biscuits, colourful things are always a good happy tonic :-)

  8. I like the mobile phone cover...reminds me of a hacky sack...probably why Syms likes it?!

  9. NZ native bush [wipes tears from eyes]. If home is where the heart is, it realistically explains the huge void in my chest. Though I walk through the valley, PaisleyJade...if there's shadows the light must be getting in from somewhere. x

  16. Well done on posting last week, when you'd had some ups and downs. Most of us have them, but this linky you've set up is such a fabulous way to end the week on a positive note and kick start the weekend on the right footing. Thank you!

    And your photographs are always so lovely, bright and colourful (your little girl makes that brownie look far too delicious!).

  26. Hands down, your pic of Kitty sleeping stole the show around here! I, for one, am quite "green with envy" for the color of your country. How serene it looks... I pray next week you find more joy in every day.

  27. I agree!! I've been feeling the same way! Life has been demanding all of me and I haven't felt like blogging--but even through it all God has been reminding me the power of thankfulness!
    I love all of these! That first picture is just too cute!
