I had a reminder go off on my phone earlier this morning to say it was my blogs birthday! Who knows when I set that...but turns out I'd set it on a yearly reminder! Thanks past me!
9 years ago I was in Di's childhood bedroom and her husband Brad helped me set it up!
It was before I had a husband...before Tim was my boyfriend!
Before little people
Before 365 projects
Before craft swaps
Before craftanoons
Before I was an Aunty...1, 2, 3...more times!
before moving to Whyalla...

It has got me a little nostalgic! And makes me smile to remember all the stories I've shared here...and having a bit of a laugh while reading some of them back. Some things I remember writing about others I'm rediscovering again. 
It motivates me to perhaps come here a bit more often and continue sharing stories...
Because there are lots of fun stories happening these days..
Like Eve trying solids for the first time the other day!

rainbow bump

A very talented friend offered to take some maternity photos when we were announcing that our Rainbow was on it's way. About 5 weeks ago I met up with her and here are some of what she took.
Amy and her husband lost their son Noah almost 5 years ago.  After his birth Amy's doctor said she needed to get outside and get some vitamin d. So she took pictures of her daughter. Fast forward 4 years (and a rainbow of her own) and she now has her own photography business, specialising in maternity and new born photos. Amy reflected when we first chatted on the phone that if you would have said that this is where she would be now, doing what she does, she would have laughed in your face!
It was a special way to capture our rainbow bump
Thank you Amy

sunset whyalla style

I took these shots over the last month...just out the front of our house. I'll be sitting with my feet up on the couch (they are getting pretty puffy these days) and I'll look out the window and see the beautiful colours...slightly different every time and it never gets old. We bought a DSLR for Christmas...a Canon 70D I'm still learning how to use it and these were taken on auto
