Life gets busy and rushed and chaotic. It's so easy to be consumed by it. Today I am feeling incredibly loved and blessed and happy and I thought I'd capture a bit of a snippet into 'my happy' at the moment.
1 - My diary for 2014 has arrived - all the way from over the seas. I finally took the plunge and just did it. I'll let you know what I think of it once I have used it for a few months.
2 - Wholefood Simply. This book looks a-maz-ing! It has 50 recipes that are healthier alternatives to the treats that we would normally eat. The first thing that I am going to make is the caramel slice which is made with dates. I'm a little excited about this. I figured if I tried to make one 'treat' a week, I would get through all the recipes in a year. I have been following Bianca's Facebook page for a while and think that she has done such a wonderful job on this recipe book. It feels personal and I loved reading through all the snippets she included around the recipes.
3 - The boy's bow ties arrived for Christmas morning thanks to Cat from Vintage Child. I just need to iron their shirts and we are all set.
4 - Today we are cracking this baby open! I've been 'eyeing' it off for a while now and decided that this hot weather finally warranted getting it.
5 - I'm beyond excited about this one! My Uberkate necklace arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon. I can't open it to have a peak yet because it is my Christmas present from my parents and brother. Such a special gift and one that I will treasure always.
That's my 5! Happy weekend everyone x
