This photo was taken at the park in Maroubra, prior to all of our guests arriving to celebrate the Mr’s 30th birthday.  We had a most excellent day in the sunshine, surrounded with friends, and eating plenty of lovely food.

Dress:  Handmade in Vietnam by a local tailor, this silk dress is so lovely to wear.  It’s the perfect picnic frock.  The circle skirt is plentiful enough that I can sit quite happily cross-legged and know that I’m not flashing any friends.  Definitely a factor to consider when selecting your picnic going frock.

Aotearoa (part 1) January 12, 2010

Posted by Sarah in beach, family, holiday.

J and I headed back to New Zealand for Christmas and New Years.  Our birthplace.  Aotearoa.

We drank plenty of these:

Had lots of fun hanging out with some of our favourite people

Spent plenty of time gazing at beautiful places

Watched the seagulls just hanging out, watching us just hanging out

Took away memorable memories and left pairs of footprints

Gazed in awe and wonder at this beautiful country I call home
