Hello January 2015.

Hello January 2015!

It's been a long few months for us here....

Life is like that- just when you're thinking I've so nailed this thing, it throws you a few curve balls.
I'm all up for curve balls.
I truly believe it makes you a better person, but I'd not say no to a week in the Maldives either...

Or a month in a garden chair with a pile of books, and an endless jug of lemon, lime and bitters.
Just sharing it all...

We've been renovating the beach house here since September last year.
I love architectural drawings.
I love architects.
I love our home.
I love our builders.


I'm not a renovator!
This shocked me a little a lot!

I'm a decorating, mooching, styling, moving furniture, finding spaces kinda girl.
I'm up for making a wonderful home- rearranging spaces endlessly and embracing our days in them.
I'm not a renovator.

We've renovated 'small time' before.
This was bigger.
My favourite elements to the whole process hands down, were designing the kitchen, and drinking a glass of red once a week with our wonderful architect over the plans and drawings.

I'm OK with that.
The spaces we've designed and had built are incredible.
Our three kids are in heaven.
Our family is in heaven.

Now that we're at the really lovely part of just making the space ours I'm crazy happy!
I've promised not to hammer nails into new walls. 
And I'm a big believer in the simple nail.

It's good to be back here.

Hoping your having a wonderful start to your year....x
