I have been caught up in spring energy! Sheep herding, horse riding, beach walking, vegetable planting, child wrangling... There is a wonderful energy in spring that feels so alive after the dormancy and slow pace of winter. I am trying to internalise the growing and blooming and sprouting into my own inner spring so that like all the fruit trees on this mini farm of ours, I can put down strong roots and continue to give fruit. Its easy to forget about nurturing yourself as a mother, and while it is true that when you give to others it does come back to you, I am finding that I still need to bring the conscious nurturing of myself to my mind.
Happy Spring Southern Hemisphere Friends, and to all the northerners, Happy Autumn!

oh, the places we've been!

Looking back over the photos of late, it seems we have been out exploring the world. a lot. 
here are some of the things we've seen on our journeys:



All it took was a little bit of sunshine and a little less icy wind for us to pack picnics and ride/walk/run to the end of the street.
Of all the amazing beaches in this area, i really do love 'our' beach the most. Its so wild and familiar at the same time...






 There also has been a multitude of Melbourne outings lately.Since moving out of Melbourne 4 years ago,there has been a sure and steady dwindling of visits, especially as so many melbournian friends have been abandoning the city as well! But lately, with the smallest of us now able to walk (relatively) long distances, and the eldest of the littles embarking on her homeschooling adventures, there has been a lot of museum visits, exploring all that it offers, as well as random culinary adventures that are tricky to have out this way.
The botanical gardens have been a favourite destination too!



Of course the sunrise as seen out of our lounge room window is pretty beautiful too!




 Oh Melbourne, you really are a beautiful city!

Weekly Walking


For those of you who follow along on Instagram, you may have noticed  a newfound resolve (and follow through!!)of Family walks.
Its lovely for the children to just walk amongst the trees, along the beaches, or along the grasslands. The simple act of nature inspiring a sense of peace and awe never gets old, especially in this corner of the world. These are the places we have been, and some of the things we have seen.....
