all of my photographic memories of lifes loving moments

Our trip to Woollongong and the sea that inspired me. One day I’ll find an abandoned beach for you and I to live beside.

Bear Season

So, I baked some organic light rye bread today for the first time. One step closer to self sufficiency and avoiding those awful supermarkets. Can’t wait to try out the next recipe!

I think everything in life is art. What you do. How you dress. The way you love someone, and how you talk. Your smile and your personality. What you believe in, and all your dreams. The way you drink your tea. How you decorate your home. Or party. Your grocery list. The food you make. How your writing looks. And the way you feel. Life is art.

I love Sundays!!! Today’s morning agenda included Blackheath Growers Market where I bought a small packet of delicious Blue Vein Goats Cheese, a loaf of Fig and Walnut Sourdough Bread and a delightful trail mix of apricots, almonds, pepita’s and cranberries! The afternoon entailed a trek into the wilderness to collect fallen tree branches to use as kindling for the fireplace followed by shooting a mini photo essay on the process of drying Lavender. Life is good in the mountains!
