2017 Recap

I love a recap so I’ve hit the keyboard to look at my year that was! Full disclosure before you read on, while everyone experiences ups and downs (myself included), this recap focuses only on the positive because who wants to end the year being a negative nelly? In 2017 I was lucky to have plenty […]

My Sister’s Perfectly Melbourne Wedding

In April this year my sister Candice married her partner.   Of everyone in my family Candice is by far the most organised, and true to form she arranged every wedding detail herself, including her hens party.

Little Sister Got Married

There’s a running joke in my family that a year isn’t complete until we’ve had a family wedding. To explain, there are five children in my immediate family (all girls and I’m the middle child), and over the last three years we have consistently had either an engagement or a wedding for one of us […]
