languid hours in sun,
embedded in the autumn grass;
premature winter winds gently nudge while the last remnants of the summer sun haze around the edges like yesterday’s hangover
autumn in Sydney is a delightful season;
clear skies, calm harbour
friends & family milking the last of the weekend sun with
picnics and footy in the park
this weekend we entertained friends at home,
grounded ourselves in the park,
enjoyed wine & food at a local festival
this life of ours,
this love of ours
me, Jared & Michelle
Michelle & Amanda
Syaz, Bianca & Ivan
Pete & Jared

Jay & Harley; earthing themselves
Harley being a total weirdo. Honestly.
Pyrmont Wine & Food Festival
Timezone for adults!!! Tickets = wine!
Jay & I

Mudgee Rose wines – yum!

Jay & Melly 2005
circa 2005 at a friend’s party;
balmy night, corona’s with lime, seared & smoky bbq, blonde hair, Otis Redding on the stereo, strawberry pavlova, games of boggle, home-made icy poles, cradling babies, hide & seek, hyper puppies, lots of laughter. good times.
ain’t memories & love grand
If you read my post yesterday you’d have seen I’ve been blasting Chet Faker on my iPod constantly… I’ve been listening to him since mid-last year when his debut album Thinking in Textures launched but then moved on to other new stuff, recently got a craving for his tunes and have reignited my obsession with this Melbourne future-beat/soul-electronica artist…so I thought I’d share with you because I know you need something awesome to kickoff your working week!
This is my favourite track.

You wouldn’t know it’s approaching winter here in Sydney. There hasn’t been a cloud in the sky for days and today the top temp was 30°C (86°F)!
Gorgeous weather people, which is making me very happy indeed!
Here’s what I got up to in the past week…
introducing Mr & Mrs Basu Roy; Shookie & Raj
photo booth fun! Jay, me, Geoff & Mich
my gorgeous Mum & Harley

flags at half-mast; celebrating & remembering the troops on ANZAC day
Harley got featured on @instas_cutest_pet because he’s so damn cute!

morning run with Harley – he’s the black dot way up ahead! Yep, that’s the Sydney Harbour Bridge!
