A big few weeks - sigh!!!!!!!

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Well I have had the flu for a couple of weeks and I so hope it is finally rounding the corner and I can enjoy the school break with my beautiful kids.....These photos are little clippings of my studio room, my little place in the world .....So many things happening at the moment...Finally booked our trip to europe which is beyond exciting...My beautiful family property (owned with my 4 siblings, my gorgeous parents left it to us) is on the market and it makes my heart very sad but it is just one of those things that needs to be done.... As a mum my heart strings are playing because my little girl is into her last 7 weeks of school...She is so ready for a new adventure but at the same time it is all just flying by too fast and my little boy turns 14 tomorrow...He is my little confidant, my amazing cook, has the best cuddles in the world and he is growing into such a lovely young man :)

Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect. It means you have decided to look beyond the imperfections.

Joy is not in things; it is in us.

Think of all the beauty still left around you and be happy.

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
