The man who inspired me to blog.

“Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them.” This quote defines my uncle. Andrew Knowlman. Lives in England. Today, turns 50.  In honour of his birthday, I wanted to share a post of how much Andrew has inspired me to begin my own blog and to always be present in life. Within the last…

Problems aren’t problems unless you make them.

A lot of individuals are stuck chasing the constructed idea of happiness and can never be content with the moment in time they are present in. This use to be me. To this day, there are still days that fall back and have to remind myself that happiness is not a full bank account, expensive…

The life of an intolerant-to-every-damn-food person

“I’m sorry for being annoying but can I please change…” “Let me know if this is too hard to do otherwise I’ll find somewhere else..” “Sorry for being so frustrating.” I feel embarrassed when employers just look at me with frustration. With all the kindness I can give, I am still that shitty person who…

Untouched Australian beauty

After a 4 day weekend of volunteering in coaching and managing 14 year old kids in Hervey Bay a sneaky reward was much deserved. Our last minute stopover to Rainbow Beach in Queensland Australia was more than just worth it, and oh man those views gave me goosebumps. In an almost deserted town, on a gorgeous Summer arvo,…

Our Memory Journal

For Christmas, Keenan bought me the most thoughtful present. A polaroid camera and a recycled papered journal. Whenever we come across a significant event we snapshot the moment with the polaroid and record it in our journal. I love this because as we grow older we can go back and look at all these meaningful memories,reminisce on…

My Valentine

Just had the most spontaneous & beautiful Valentines Day with Keenan. For starters, a cute little man rocked up at my door at 8am, holding a gorgeous bouquet filled with my favourite flowers. Expected it to be for my sister or mother, but they were actually for me! From Keenan. Definitely the most romantic gesture…

Grateful #3: Rosie.

Okay, if you haven’t met Rosie yet you’re in for a laugh. She is my clumsy, dopey, naughty and affectionate dog. It all started at puppy school. She slept all class and missed everything. But, she still learnt how to sit, shake and drop… so she passed. Lets just say Rosie should’ve stayed in puppy school…

Grateful #2: The Ocean.

Powerful,  although peaceful.  When you stand on the waters edge and the waves kiss your feet, your mind will always reveal your deepest feelings. As the waves roll over me and hit the shore, it takes my stresses and worries back out to sea. There are no words that could truly describe the beauty of…

Where the rainforest meets the reef

I was very grateful to have a break from working long days at two jobs to sneak up to Cairns for my friend Sarah’s birthday. Had such a blast, hopping from reefs to rainforests, we snorkelled off Sarah’s boat and swam with Giant Trevally at Michaelmas Cay, we went on rainforest walks to swim in amazing waterfalls,…
