Carrick Hill

Monday was our 7 year anniversary! 

It bought back all of the beautiful memories of our wedding day. 
I wouldn't change a thing! 
Our reception was at the stunning Carrick Hill.

Oh we look so young .................well we were!

We don't really do presents but always on the hunt for something a little different and with meaning I ordered this beautiful custom print from the lovely Janette at My Sweet Prints.

Hope you are all having a lovely week!

Main Beach, Noosa Heads. Photo: Tourism Queensland

Very soon we will be off to Noosa! 

It is our first REAL family holiday and after an extremely busy year we are all looking forward to the escape.

So those of you out there who have been before, please tell me where someone who doesn't love the beach (the boys and husband do) and is obsessed with homewares and design should go.

Thanks to all of you for your very kind, understanding and supportive comments on my last post.
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your words.

An Opportunity!

I was recently contacted and given the most awesome opportunity!
 I was totally flattered and applied with out a lot of thought......

Next thing I knew I had made the shortlist and had an upcoming audition.

Details emerged that if I was successful I would have to spend up to 7 weeks away from my family.

This got me thinking. Would I have applied had I not been asked? Probably not! Why would I do it? 
Well certainly not to change my life or further my career (these I am more than happy with). 
I would merely be doing it for the life experience.

I have just turned 31, have 2 beautiful young boys, a gorgeous husband, home, wonderful country life and a business that I love working in every day. I don't need or want the lights, camera and action!

To those of you going ahead with it (which I am sure there are some of you out there), go for it! 
I can't wait to see the show and I will be cheering for you from the comfort of my home on the farm!

Should the opportunity arise again later in life.....I might just be tempted.
