It’s been a while…

Hello 2017 and Happy New year to all my gorgeous followers!  The past couple of weeks (okay, months) have been a complete blur – this motherhood role has totally got me, or rather my little one has completely wrapped me around her teeny-tiny finger! But alas, here I am and here I hope to be a bit more this year! 

Over the Christmas a new year period we had ALOT of family time – a huge family reunion in Fiji, family get togethers over Christmas and a few days at my in-law’s holiday house up the coast – It’s been totally wonderful, but now the reality of the daily grind is setting back in and I’m determined to make better choices this year! 

To start off with I thought I’d share a bit of a photo diary of what’s been happening over the past few weeks/months..
