So, when are you having kids?

Short answer: I would if I could right now. What I tell people: Oh, sometime soon. Long story: Keep reading… Since getting married, I have lost count of how many times I have been asked this question. It literally started as soon as I got back from our honeymoon. And the worst part is, the…

My love of learning

I love learning. I love discovering new ideas, new ways of approaching issues and furthering my professional knowledge. I work with children and yesterday I went to a professional development session about ‘Developing a child-focused curriculum’. It was great! I came out of it feeling motivated and inspired. I couldn’t wait to start planning. Now,…

Something I’m Struggling With…

I’m not really sure where to start, I suppose you probably need a bit of context. My period came back in October but I haven’t had one since. They’re still irregular but that’s to be expected, however, were not, not trying… If that makes any sense at all. I am still seeing a Traditional Chinese…

A lot on my mind…

I’m not really sure where to start here so I am just going to write until I feel like I’ve gotten things off my chest. The last few days I haven’t felt like myself. I’ve been moody, distant and so unsure of what’s coming next. I don’t think too much of it is hormonal, but…

What I Do To Make My Soul Happy

In a world where there are so many expectations put on us and many of us are living in fight or flight, it’s important to remember to fill your cup up too. I thought I’d share some things that I do to make my soul happy and fill my cup back up, because you can’t…

Do good things only come to those who hustle?

Living as a young adult in the 21st century seems to be all about the ‘hustle’ or ‘grind’, but is that how we’re supposed to live? I came across a quote while scrolling on Instagram today that really hit home with me, so I thought I’d share it below. I honestly believe human beings are…

My Starting Point

This photo? This photo right here. This is my starting point. I was embarassed when this photo went up on Facebook. How could I let myself get to this point. I look in mirror every fucking day yet I didn’t see it until that photo came up. I’ve piled on weight in the last three…

Sunday Morning

This morning we took things slow. I slept in, while you’d been up for hours. You had been inside your head while I was dreaming, completely unaware of your struggle. When I woke up, you held me close, the warmth of your body providing comfort when I soon realised I should be comforting you. We…

Honeymoon Day Five and Six

We are home, and although we loved every minute of our honeymoon, it’s so good to be back in our house, with our own bed and as Luke said, our own toilet. Yesterday was our biggest day with a 7 hour tour of jet boating, snorkelling, Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet. You just can’t fathom…

Honeymoon Day Four

Yesterday we had a super lazy day and didn’t really do anything until dinner. For dinner, we headed to Northelies Bar and Grill. It’s a bit north of Airlie Beach and a bit more on the expensive side but the views (and company – haha!) were worth it!
