May 16, 2017

I have lots I want to blog about but for some reason, can’t seem to find the right words yet. So I thought I’d let the words flow by just Taking Stock.

A letter to my future self #FridayReflections

May 12, 2017

The Month That Was

April 2017: Oh-so-curious

May 1, 2017

Is it May already? I almost forgot it was a new month until it was bedtime yesterday. April seemed to just zoom past! April was an interesting month for me. I tend to enjoy it due to all the public holidays we tend to have. The long weekend for Easter is always good — no one can beat four days! And this year, we were lucky to have great weather. Then there is the holiday for Anzac day which this…
