I have to say, this new journey our little family set sail upon has thus far been the most incredible adventure and I can’t quite believe we’ve had 7 and a half months with this precious little human! Parenthood has been so much more than I could have ever imagined; days are graced with a different kind of hard, but filled always with a new kind of wonderful and each day she makes me feel beyond privileged to be her mother. It feels as though we’ve finally coming out of the survival-mode you’re thrown into as new parents and things are starting to click into place with trying to balance being a mother and still being ‘me’ and being ‘us’. Of course the balancing act is still a work in progress and things will constantly be changing and evolving, as life always does – nothing indeed stays still for long. (more…)
Ok, how is it that we’re already approaching the end of July… I really need to up my ante on the blogging front! I’m sure though that I can be excused with being ever so slightly preoccupied by the little human bundle currently sleeping it out on my chest hehe.

And a little girl at that! I have just hit 24 weeks, so it’s crazy to think that we’re now over the half way point. We are beyond excited and have so many thoughts and feelings and aspirations for our little family in the making. (more…)
A few months ago we headed for a weekend escape down to the bottom tip of New Zealand’s North Island, to visit Wellington for the first time, well my first time to be precise. I’m slightly ashamed to say it, but it is evidently true – I have explored more of the world outside of our tiny country than I have of my very own backyard! But nevertheless, I love our little slice of the world and finally getting away for a few days to get lost through the cafe lined streets only confirmed all the wonderful things I had heard about the well nicknamed ‘windy city’.
