Why Hello there...

By PaisleyJade - Friday, July 05, 2013

Why hello - it's been a while since I've visited this space.  Life has been full and busy - life has been good.

Some of us have been dressing up like Hobbit's for youth group.  Would it surprise you if I told you that this someone who is 14 years old is also now over 6 feet tall?  It surprised me this afternoon when I found out.  Probably not really an appropriate height to dress as a Hobbit, but he looked great anyway!

The June birthday celebrations came to an end as we celebrated my Nana June's (yes, her name is June and she was born in June!) birthday.  She is such a sweetie and the perfect Nana!

The most delicious gluten/egg and dairy free balls have been made - check out the recipe for these AMAZE-balls here!

As winter sets in, crafting has been embraced - more retro cushions to be revealed soon!

Family moments have been grabbed at any opportunity.  When life gets busy, family time seems to become more of a priority, even if it means clearing away time and embracing the moment (and napping during the moment).

Symon and I have had an amazing few days away together at a gathering (Gathering of the Generals) in Auckland.  We had the privilege of rubbing shoulders with some amazing mentors in the Faith and have come away inspired, refreshed, challenged and so encouraged.

So there is a quick update of the happenings lately - and I will be back soon!
