Ahhh. The weeks before Christmas. Always awesome, busy, filled with wine, lacking sleep, you know it. I think I've had something on every single night for two weeks straight now. And while I completely love this time of year, I could probably do with a quiet evening of reading on the porch!
So, some of the little things I've been up to are...
Enjoying amazing sunsets like this while I catch the ferry into the city. I love love love where I live. I love that it's near amazing beaches and on a little patch of land a bit like an island, with one long road in and out that always makes me feel like I'm going on holiday, even if I've just been to somewhere boring. I also love that, thanks to the ferry, it is only 10 minutes from town and I get to soak in views like this for less than the cost of a coffee. Bliss.
Making cookies like this with a little friend. How cute are they?! This stamp was not-cheap, but I thought it was totally worth it.
Enjoying this spread with some friends last night. It might not look like much, but I can assure you this was only about one third of what was on offer. The reason I took this photo was because my awesome, clever mum made the quince paste in the bowl AND the lavosh crackers. She's so talented. Or maybe I'm just lazy - it would never occur to me to see store-bought lavosh crackers as something that could be made better at home. But she did and they went down a treat.
I have a very full weekend planned which I'm super excited about. Life is just fun right now, after two really tough months I'm feeling really positive and happy. HOORAY.
