Surviving the heatwave! It was surprisingly bearable in "the cave", which is what we took to calling the bedroom, after spending every waking minute in there for 5 days. Thank goodness for takeaway food and a portable air conditioner! Going to my favourite cafe for breakfast with Shane on Saturday... Continue reading

A mini bedroom makeover. We changed the orientation of the bed, hung up some art work, bought a salt crystal lamp, and hooked up the air conditioner. It's amazing what a difference those small changes can make! Picking up a few DoTerra essential oils from the health store. I went... Continue reading

Getting a mid-week day off to celebrate Australia Day. We decided to forgo the fireworks and opted for a family beach trip and a pub lunch with friends before coming home to listen to the top 20 of the Hottest 100. Pavlova. Spending 28.5 years on earth before being introduced... Continue reading

I took a huge stack of books out of the library a few weeks ago, and it wasn't until I got home that I realised that all but one of them were dark crime-y reads. What can I say - I love this genre. Unfortunately, not all of the books... Continue reading

Playing around with the ColorStory app. I purchased the full set of filters and effects, and I'm blown away at the power of this app, appreciating that I've still only scratched the surface of what it can do. Best $14.99 spent so far in 2016! Getting the bandages off the... Continue reading

Instagram is definitely my favourite social media channel. I love the interactive aspect, and I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for new accounts to follow. Today, I thought I'd share some of my favourite general / personal accounts. I try to keep my "following" list to only the accounts that... Continue reading

Being almost finished "Making a Murderer". I'm not actually a huge fan. I find the episodes drag a bit, and I just get SO ANGRY every episode! Working on my Project Life album for the first time in ages. I'm trying to finish off my 2015 album and I'm seriously... Continue reading

I've been all over the map the last few months, reading a bizarre range of books. I don't share every book I read here, some because they are too obscure and bland to mention, others because they're so popular that my endorsement is probably irrelevant. I try to keep these... Continue reading

Choosing way less screen time and way more book time. Shane recently got glasses, so now that he's been reading as well, our evenings have been passing in quiet companionship. Discovering that our local grocery store does free delivery one night a week. I was able to complete my grocery... Continue reading

I love the feeling of a new year. To me, there's nothing like a clean slate, a chance to start over. My goals this year are less comprehensive than last year, which is a good thing! I've tried to pick goals that are easy to integrate into my life but... Continue reading

The last few years, I've been sharing currently posts months, but I started getting bored writing them, which I'm sure translates to a boring read. When I read Kelsey's Things Making Me Happy This Week series, I loved the concept, and was delighted when she said she was happy for... Continue reading

I started 2015 with 10 goals, which in hindsight feels a bit excessive. Here's a quick recap on how I did... 1. Read 52 books. SUCCESS! This feels like a huge win, because not only did I read (more than!) 52 books, but I really branched out of my comfort... Continue reading

This was my first time participating in the Ali Edwards' Week in the Life project. Here is the second half of my album (first half is here if you missed it). As I mentioned when I shared my weekday post, I structured all of my days the same way -... Continue reading

Andrea, your pages are lovely, and show off what seem to be really beautiful Christmas traditions! Thanks so much for sharing!
We're going on our third December here in Australia, and it still doesn't feel right... the stores are playing Christmas music, there are decorations everywhere... and it's a million degrees! My brain just can't make sense of it! Nevertheless, I'm going to try to make the most of the holiday... Continue reading

This year, I ordered the kit for Ali Edwards' Week in the Life project. I finished the album within a month, and I've finally gotten around to sharing the finished album. This is the weekday portion of the album - I'll be sharing Saturday and Sunday soon. I used Ali's... Continue reading

I lost my beautiful older cousin Sarah earlier this year. She moved away when I was young, and so I hadn't seen or even spoken to her in more than ten years. When I skyped my Auntie to tell her about our engagement, Sarah was in the next room, and... Continue reading

Three years is a long time, and yet that's (almost) how long I'd been away from home without a visit back. And so we bought tickets on a whim, and a quick six weeks later, we were in Canada for two weeks. These photos sum up the trip: plaid button... Continue reading

We're back in Canada at the moment. Our last trip home was almost 3 years ago, so I am soaking up the long-overdue visits with family and friends. It's nice knowing that we'll be back in less than a year for the wedding! Currently, I am: enjoying catching up with... Continue reading

A Year of Magical Thinking Joan Didion What: A startlingly honest and personal account of grief following her husband's sudden (but not entirely unexpected) death. Why: This book appears in Elise's most recent book report, and because I'll pretty much read anything she recommends and found it in stock in... Continue reading

I love any excuse to celebrate. Birthdays are worthy of a week of celebration; Christmas gets a whole month of excitement! I even love celebrating off-beat occasions, like pre-versaries and puppy birthdays. However, one occasion outshines all of the others for me, and that day is Thanksgiving. When I was...

This isn't your standard "recent reads" post because the truth is, I didn't read any of these books. Or, to be more accurate, I didn't finish reading any of these books. Part of what my reading goal has reminded me this year is that there are SO. MANY. BOOKS. I... Continue reading

This is an awesome post! I use my black Staz-on on everything - I never even considered stamping in colour on photos but it looks great!
Currently, I am: enjoying the anticipation of our upcoming trip home celebrating our pre-versary... less than a year until the big day! browsing the library catalogue for some good books watching the most recent season of Grey's Anatomy and crying during every episode regretting waiting so long to order new...

I love Instagram. It's probably my favourite social media channel. I love posting photos. I love looking at photos. I love the community aspect. I love it all! Hashtags are great for a few reasons. If you want to embrace the community aspect, you can link to other users with... Continue reading
