|a pretty a day is here and away|

Documenting life's beauty, as seen through the eyes of a lady blessed with everything a girl could dream of, and more: five gorgeous kids, patient and providing husband, an adorable dog, a very cheeky frog, and still time enough to get crafty and creative in the kitchen or with my trusty needles, thread and yarn!
The joys of being Queen of the household! Rejoice, and the world joins in!

Letter to my eldest daughter on her 20th birthday

With Love to my daughter, Mel - 01 October 2011

On turning 20 ...

As you explore this big wide world of possibilities, remember to keep your eyes and ears wide open. Be kind always. Love freely. Take care of every creature. Tell the truth. Always do your best. Listen to the big people and the little people. Explore new paths and have fun. Remember that you are always loved and give thanks for all your blessings. Above all else, love and you will do wonderful things in this world!

Just me,

Just some little snapshots of the days leading up to and the day of your birthday and our garden party!
