Blog and Personal Milestone

Woo Hoo! A little excited as I logged into the Blog today to see I have had 1,000 page views! yay! Thank you to everyone has has stopped pst to read a little or a lot of my journey. Like all Bloggers, I sit here writing my thoughts and sharing pieces of myself and wonder if anyone cares or who has tuned in. Such a great milestone to pass for me. So thank you!

And while I am talking milestones, there are only 5 more sleeps till i head off to the USA. So excited to see my first glimpses of this amazing nation. My man's son has been lucky enough to be picked as part of an under 15s baseball team that is participating in a tournament in South Carolina and we are tagging along. So we roll into Dallas, Texas for a few days, then onto Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the tournament. Then the team depart and we move align to Cleveland, Ohio to watch the beloved Indians play 7 home games, just in case we haven't seen enough baseball by then.

As you can tell it is a very sporty based trip for the boys, but I know I will fit in lots of sight seeing, shopping and food along the way. While it may not be my dream trip to New York with a unlimited shopping budget, it will be amazing to share the joys of travel with my two favourite men. And who passes up a chance to travel? Not me. With my word for this year being "Adventure" I am embracing the craziness of this trip and rolling with it. Time to see the real middle America and next time I'll do it the fashionista way.

So I am off now to finish (start) packing and getting organised.

Thoughts and Feelings

Hi all,

It's such a great feeling to know that I have a place to to put my thoughts. Whether anyone reads them, or takes them on board, isn't really the point. It's about a safe place to download and share. The good, the bad, the exciting and the ugly.

While those close to me will know that the last 12 months have been tough and the last 6 more so, others will probably not have noticed a change in the business as usual version of me.  (aside from a lack of posting anything). Up until recently, I prided myself on that. On projecting that veneer to the world that everything is ok. But honestly inside I am sad. And it made me realise that we put on this veneer, this mask as if being the real version of ourselves would not be liked and accepted. That people would shun us and think less of us for showing our really feelings and our real lives.

In this day of social media and the desire to share the best bits of our lives with everyone (those we know and those we don't), have w…

Crushing on....

Do you ever get so obsessed with something that it's all you can think about? For an example a song, a dress, a culture or a food. I do. A lot. So I thought to help my obsession or to maybe even get me over my current obsessions I thought I would share them.

Food - Avocado and Feta Mash. Simple and oh so tasty. Just mash an avocado together with crumbled feta  Serve on toast, with tortilla chips, as a dish with poached eggs. Almost anywhere. Try adding extras like lemon juice, chopped tomatoes or fresh herbs. If you are in Melbourne head to Moulin Noir in Port Melbourne who do a mean version.Movie - So I am going to cheat here and go with a franchise of AMAZING movies. Fast & The Furious. Absolutely obsessed with these. and there is a new one out, Fast & Furious 6. Vin Diesel, Paul Walker,  fast cars and non stop action. Do I need to say more? Looking forward to seeing it this weekSong - Oh so hard to pick one but going with my movie theme it would have to be We Own It by 2…
