JOIE - JOY

Monday, January 28, 2008


Well it is a public holiday for Australia Day here in Australia and Kirstie and I are having our last day together before the boys come back from their fishing trip... This sweet young girl makes my heart sing with joy every day... We have been to the movies, watched re-runs of Gilmore Girls snuggled up in our PJ's till early in the morning and spent time with her friends...and talked and talked about life and love...She inspires me every day with her love of life and the commitment to do her best.... She is my daughter and my dear, dear friend....

  2. WOW, I am just blown away by your beautiful house and amazing blog. It is seldom you find blogs where you just love everything but now I have!!!!! I am a fan!!
    I love the old painted furnitures and the way you mix it with beautiful old pieces.

    That was lovely what you said about your daughter. Hope to have a daughter one day too.

    I found your blog through my friend Johanna at Vintage in Sweden. She has talked about you to me because I used to I lived in Melbourne. I was there for three years but been back in Sweden for two years now. And I really miss Australia. Lovely country to live in!!!

  7. Hi Cathy Louise!

    What a wonderful relationship you two seems to have! I feel your love, and you words are the very best to hear from a mother. It makes me miss my own a lot. I can`t wait to see her again and take her into my arms. Thank you for sharing such a personal feeling and giving me a good reason to call her and tell her how much she mean to me. Thank you!
