Dipping in

There have been many days where I have sat (okay, by 'sat' I really mean, when I whilst I was 'lying down'), thinking about re-entering the blogworld for 2013 and every time the thought came into my head, I would see myself tentatively dipping my toe in, just testing the waters. I guess knowing that when I was ready, my words would be brief and what I needed would be an extremely gentle and very slow return.
So hi, hello there, hope you are all deliciously well and fresh with the possibilities of a new year.
I have never really been one for New Year resolutions and all that jazz, but this year I could not deny how awesome it was farewelling the old year and looking towards the new and as I looked forward I realised that I have a whole big swag of resolutions or ideas or a yearning for change. These are largely focused around healing, appreciation, a slowing down (mostly of what happens in my head but happy to put this down for everything) and the embarking of a deeper journey of growing in love (don't worry, it sounds good and makes total sense in my head).

So here's to a wonderful, new, exciting, beautiful and enlightening new year.

Here are a couple of snaps from some of our time in Sydney and at my parents on the Central Coast. Christmas, ah a distant but delightful memory, it was easy, beautifully child focused and totally delicious.
After Christmas we hot tailed it to Sydney to be loved up by the ever loving and totally dazzling, Tracey, Vince, Remy and Jenna, oh my goodness what a family before heading back up the coast. WHAT!! Yes, crazy but true, Scott and I had an awesome opportunity to hang out and perform at Peats Ridge Festival with the Samba Soul (or Drum Oz) drummers and dancers (Scott was on shakers), whilst my parents had the awesome opportunity of hanging out with Poe and Ilo. It was really lovely and fun, especially wandering about hand in hand, just checking out random musical acts and the parade was also a whole heap of fun. So much so, we both decided that we will do the whole festival this year, as a family (now, that's planning ahead).


* oh and that amazing and heartbreakingly beautiful egg in the nest was a gift from Nicole. I look at it every day and gasp, she found the nest and made the this superbly perfect ceramic egg. Not only is she immensely talented but she is a very dear and wondrous friend. I am so blessed to have her in my life.

  3. You are back with a bang! Looking gorgeous in feathers. Those photos are a visual feast and I just love that you can use the words 'Scott was on shakers'. Happy happy new year to you Jay may it be rich and nourishing in every way xx ps re: your question on my blog about using xylitol I have never used it either and would probably replace it with stevia or agave or even maple syrup if that's what I had in the cupboard.

Thank you for your gorgeous wishes for my year ahead, it is already feeling quite strong, exciting yet solid and peaceful. Wishing you nourishment as well (in all forms), strength, perfect love and ridiculous giggling moments. Re xylitol, i thought as much, but thanks for letting me know. xxx
