When we went to see our venue for the first time one of the things I loved most about it was how beautiful the scenery was. The mountains in the distance, the heritage cottages with their years of history and the lush nature everywhere. There was a huge gum tree with the most amazing branch... Continue Reading →
I loved being able to personalise the signs for our wedding. They were a combined effort with me designing each signs wording in Canva, my brother in law cutting the wood to size and my sister Milly hand painting each one. I looked ALL OVER for an easel and didn't even think to check Bunnings.... Continue Reading →
Getting married is one of the biggest and most personal celebrations you will plan in you lifetime. While it took a while for Richard and I to get from our engagement to our wedding day, we both knew what kind of wedding we wanted from the start. Our must haves were a location that we...

We have all been there. Opened an email, a message or a DM and then BAM the toddler needs you. Other life things come up and before you know it days have passed without replying if you do in fact even remember to. I get it, I do it all the time. This year though... Continue Reading →

Earlier that day I sat in Foxie's room, watching Richie play with him and I felt this intense sadness. The words I am profoundly unhappy actually came out of my mouth. It should have been a beautiful moment but there I was, just completely disconnected and unable to see past my feelings.
Luckily he gave me a second chance, so we set another coffee date. I rocked up in my active wear and he had a cast on his hand (from having his finger re-broken after a horrible motorbike accident a few months prior). That first time we met in person, I just knew right away that he was special - in a good way. Like we were meant to meet and that he would be a huge part in my life.
One of my absolute go to brands for both Fox and I is Kiss Chasey Designs. I was actually lucky enough to be approached by Kari to help with a product release when Fox was just a teeny bub and we immediately bonded over a mutual love of mustard shades. The first item I purchased... Continue Reading →
