A few weeks of happiness – #20 – 22

A week of happiness, Journey true north

Well, it’s the end of a holiday Monday, and the softness of autumn is well in the air. Thanks to many things for a very nice few weeks. We are very grateful.

Thanks especially to a two part holiday. Camping in the trees:

Time at the beach:

And lots of time, to play:

It’s a holiday Monday in Australia, which is worthy of thanks in itself.*

Thanks also to a burst of garden sunshine, followed by a burst of cool, cool beach rain:

Be your inner child: 8 activities to enjoy just as much as your kids

Parenting, Wonder

Watch kids play and you see tiny moments of wonder that light up their faces – each and every day. They have an incessant urge to get amongst it, take life at full pace, soak it up and spit it out in a burst of crazed energy. Followed by collapsing in a heap recounting the best of their day (sometimes while simultaneously sliding into sleep).

We have a lot to learn.

Weeks of happiness – #12 and #13

As the year started anew, we had time to bask in some simple moments of happiness – family, travel and a lovely cold swimming pool or two. Here are some of our small highlights.

New toys to bounce on.

Stunning gardens to explore.

I hope your change of year has been one with simple pleasures to savour. And the year to come offers much to enjoy.

Happy, happy 2015.
