Life thus far...

I am so overwhelmed by the wonderful response I received from my last post. Thank you so much for all your kind words, they mean more than you can imagine. After all that party planning craziness, this week I took a much needed break away from blogging (and pretty much everything else) to just unwind and relax. Sometimes all you need is a little break from your usual routine to appreciate how wonderful life is.

Having been in Melbourne, Australia for a month now, it's about time I got around to posting photos of my trip. The truth is, having grown up here I sometimes forget that I am on vacation. Before I left I had all sorts of plans for places to visit and things to eat. But in reality, once I had settled the girls into their new home away from home, a routine began to emerge and pretty soon life became mundane and I forgot I was on vacation. It's been almost five weeks since I first got here and I have yet to skim the surface of my vacation to-do list. Luckily for me there's still plenty of time. For now, here's some snippets from life here thus far.

Very refreshing and cute pictures you've posted. Melbourne is one of my personal favorite cities in Australia along with the likes of Sydney and Brisbane among others.

Jenee, I love your pics. Sometimes a quiet routine someplace new is really exciting--just the little things like different candy and coffee etc. make me happy when I'm traveling. Love that photo of you with your 2 little ones--so adorable!!! And thank you for your sweet words about my bag line, I really appreciate it :) Hope you're having a wonderful new week!

I know what you mean, Jenee. I find it difficult when it comes to having little ones around because without a routine, everything turns into chaos. I miss Melbourne so much too. I've got tons of friends there. I used to fly over twice a year before moving to the UK.
