Memories...




Goodness all, where has the time gone... It's been busy busy busy this week as we build up to the end of 2011! Yes,  blink and you could have missed it... 2011 is quickly drawing to a close. However, as life is never dull in our neck of the woods, the next couple of months are sure to be jam packed with loads of fun things and the completion of some very dear projects... I've had a fortunate year this year, working with some amazing clients and putting together some lovely creative work (all to be revealed in 2012, roll on, roll on)... I'm always struck with a nostalgic tear as the year draws to a close - where I find myself thinking about the time that has passed and where good things began. Recently, I was rifling through some old bits and bobs when I came across these tear sheets (of myself and my daughter Inez... Joe in tummy!) in our old house in Camp Cove in Sydney. Inez was not even a year old back then (she's now nearly 13) and our little weatherboard home had just had a makeover and as it was gleaming with freshness, it ended up in the second issue of the newly created INside Out magazine. Remember this one all? Looking at these pictures of Inez reminded me of old times, where we've been and how far we've all come along our journey... I have to admit that I did shed a little tear when I found these pics... My, how quickly everybody grows... And so with that, a reminder to seize the day, enjoy every minute (even the frustrating ones!) and to go with the flow... As time will pass - exactly as it's meant to...
Happy Weekend all...

Hi Shannon, that photo of you in the kitchen brings back memories for me too. I showed it to our floor sander at the time and he scoffed and said 'things in magazines aren't real'. Hence we didn't use him and I pointed out that they are actually people's homes. We don't have that little cottage anymore and mine children are quite grown up too.
