I love taking photos. Photos that capture and collect everyday bits of our everyday lives. I am the collector of our family's stories. I endeavour to hold onto the fleeting moments and memories of our lives with pictures and words. For this reason my camera (iphone or dSLR) goes with me everywhere.
I love mountains, flowers, books, cows, chickens, anything old or vintage, sunsets, art journalling, painting, sewing, scrapbooking, cooking, bushwalking, mountain biking and travel.
I love to create and express my journey creatively and I have dreams of creating a space for others to come together to create, share their stories and skills.
I am passionate about showing, giving and demonstrating to my children real love and allowing them to be all that they were created to be and I am passionate about enjoying the journey with my husband, learning to love him the way he needs to be loved.
Over the past couple of years I have been on a personal journey that has taken me to the places in my soul and heart that needed refreshing, rejuvenating, cleansing, etc. I am being stripped of layers that have in fact been covering up the me that I thought was not there. So many false beliefs covered up with rules, judgements and perfectionism. The journey has been a wonderful time of shedding some of these layers and discovering a beauty that has taken my breathe away. It has been a time of loving my brokeness, embracing my imperfections and learning to accept the grace offered to me. A time of finding myself, what was and has been there all along. What a treasure that has been found.
This blog, originally started as a place to share pictures and stories of our trip to the USA in 2009, has evolved into a place for me to share my journey. My stories. My family. My creativity. My dreams. My everyday life.
