Friday's Fancies

Hello hello, happy friday everyone! I am now blogging to you from Melbourne, Australia. We landed earlier today after what might be described as a marathon of a flight. For those of you with little ones, you'll understand what it's like traveling anywhere with them. Now add to that 20+ hours in the air, 10+ hours of transit and travel, the crossing of 8 time zones and the sudden change from summer to winter. Let's just say I was quite relieved when I heard those two front wheels hit the tarmac.

Now that I've landed, I can't wait to get back to my usual blogging schedule. I'm dying to catch up with everyone and see how you're all doing. I'm sure I've missed so many great posts this past week. Thank you for continuing to visit me even though there hasn't been much activity lately. If you're interested in seeing what life is like down under, I will be snapping away on instagram @jeneechen. For now, a few pictures from life this week. xx Jenee C.

Spending quality time with my sister baking, laughing and eating. These were meant to be passionfruit yoyo's but they looked so cute open instead of sandwiched that we decided to leave them that way.
Miss mini-me fast asleep with her sunnies on. Keeping a low-profile so she gets to nap in peace. Little did she know it made for adorable photos.


We do not have a Whole Foods in our town, the nearest one is an hour away (sad face). I make sure I visit every other week to stock up on whatever fresh produce is in season. These beautiful figs go so well in soups.

Putting together a few colours to bring with with me that would transition well from summer to winter to spring to summer and back to winter. Yep, I will be experiencing all 5 seasons in the next 4 months.  

I love surprises but best of all, I love watching my kids faces light up at surprise visits from daddy when we're out at the park.

Beautiful photos of your children ! I love those sweet treats and the fruit photo, beautiful capture. I can feel how hard it is to adjust in a different time zone, it takes quite some time to settle down. But I guess, blogging balances everything -this is one activity that keeps us sane in the midst of all these chaos and differences !
have a nice weekend !

It must've taken some getting used to when you moved from Melbourne to Tennessee. I miss Melbourne too :( I commend you for bringing 2 very young kids on a long haul flight. I think I just about passed out from exhaustion dealing with a precocious little girl from the UK to NZ. 28 hours later, 10 hours transit...... NOT fun.

Well... said...

Aww, that's so sweet (the last picture), it made me smile :)
Haha, and oh man, I do not envy you that flight! So glad you're all safe though
