FROM THE ORDINARY TO THE  EXTRAORDINARY THE TEAM HAVE SHOWN HOW THEY LIVE THEIR LIVES ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS. MOSTLY OUR LIVE ARE MADE UP OF THE ROUTINES AND STRUCTURES AND HOPEFULLY THEY ARE DOTTED WITH LITTLE MOMENTS OF MAGIC AHHHH, THAT MAKE AND ORDINARY DAY EXTRAORDINARY. OFTEN IT'S THE LITTLE THINGS THAT TURN OUT TO BE THE BIG THINGS- NOT MY WORDS BUT PROFOUND WORDS- HERES TO CRAFTING A GREAT LIFE...
ENJOY.

We’ve all been sick recently so I've been lazying around the house trying to distract myself from watching more “Cars”. So i started to get a bit organised and by organised I mean, distracted by shiny things, not “Cars”. It’s the middle of winter for us and it’s still so shiny and sunny outside with a cool wind so I was feeling a bit fresh for my mood board or maybe I was hopeful for some freshness in our home. I love my diary and iPad cover. They go everywhere with me, along with my glow mesh purse. (I stash lip balms in there and you name it, probably bandaids too). On a bit of a tidy up I found some wrapping and confetti I was trying to make out of silver paper and got a wee little bit excited. I tried airing out our home with a Peter Alexander vanilla candle. My goodness it’s so good. Made me think our house was germ free for a moment and my last photo is my favourite, a little bunny plush toy which belongs to my son Moss. My boys have matching ones just like their Daddy had when he was a boy. Swoon.

This week's fifth was pretty bang average. Fruit salad with coconut, seeds, and almond flakes. Fruity tea. War paint. Pretty patterns at the coffee shop that I worked from. And computer time. 

I treasure these photos. These times of content.

I don't know about you, but when I think about what I want to look back on in life, it's the days like these. Simple, routine, and bang average.

Whilst this is an unconventional 5 on the fifth; meant to depict my everyday living and activities- i couldn't resist the opportunity to capture the view at the end of our little place, here in the southern highlands of NSW, Australia. It is a typical icy winter morn and the deep frost has melted but the fog and mist remain and remind me it is winter, chilly yet beautiful. 

This will all be gone soon, with the approaching of spring and i wanted to remember how the days appear and how the colour palette changes with each season. This is one of my favourite area to stop an soak in. It's just rural bush land, scattered with roo's and cows and it makes my heart warn and spirit soar to see such beauty in the simple. Oh how i love this dreary winter wonderland of ours.
