Summer Love

Sand, sun(screen), and mountain climbs. Our wild adventures continued with our annual summer camping trip. We cherish spending time with family and friends, what better way to do it than unplugging and enjoying nature.  We enjoyed fun at the lake and Everly learnt how to dive under the water. She had the 'once you pop you can't stop' mentality and spent a whole afternoon diving under.  The girls (the big girls that is) kept themselves amused for an afternoon on the beach doing handstands and cartwheels. Those shots don't need to be shared hehehe.    The camping essentials, as mentioned in our previous post, no nasties sunscreen and mozi spray. We could not camp without these two things and I...

What sets your soul on fire?

Have you ever wanted something so bad that you keep persisting until you achieve it? Not to mention once you get there you have no idea what to do with yourself.  That’s exactly how I feel about 'winning The Block'. Even writing those words seems surreal.  There had been many nights spent thinking about what it would be like to be on The Block, yet little time was spent thinking about actually taking out the top prize. See, regardless of what people may think, this season was truly one of mate-ship and care for each other. All the teams wanted to see a result that allowed everyone to be rewarded.  And what a beautiful ending it was.  The nerves leading...
