Most healthy eating plans go out the window when Easter comes around. Well I know it does for me. While I don’t plan on forsaking the chocolate this Easter, I do like treating myself less with food these days. My recent...
Sightseeing a new city on holiday is my favourite part of a holiday. I love seeing the main sights and recognizing places from TV shows and movies. Sightseeing in LA and Hollywood is a must do. We had one...
It’s been nearly two weeks since I shared about my eye and the need for getting a second opinion. I have since met with 2 Neurosurgeons and a Professor who specializes in ENT and skull surgery, to get opinions...
I’ve been a freelance writer for 6 years. In that time I have either read or written articles about parents encouraging to get a second opinion when something hasn’t been right with their health or the health of their...
And just like that, Phoebe went to her first day of Kindy. I remember 4 years ago, the battle it was to get a 6 month old Phoebe, nearly 2 year old Maggie and 4 year old Esther out of...
It’s hard to believe it was more than a month ago since we left Brisbane to head on our first family overseas holiday to LA. I thought I’d share our family travels in a series of posts so you...

Working from home during the school holidays can be tricky and I’ve learned to embrace the chaos and prioritise what work needs to be done. I read somewhere that we are only given 18 summer holidays with our kids...
I thought I had last week to get myself sorted for the impending school holidays, which always take me by surprise, despite them being the same time every year. But last week ended up being a write off of sorts...
On my desk, I have Proverbs 31: 10-31 framed on my desk. It was a handout given a few years ago at church for Mother’s Day that I took home and got framed. The Proverbs 31 woman is certainly the...

Since the 1st of January, my girls have been so eager to get to school. Their impatience led to tears when they learned how many weeks and days they would have to wait until they could go to school....
The school holidays have been a much welcome interruption to our normal daily routine. It’s been great not having anywhere to go, allowing us to go anywhere we want to go because we can. These past two weeks have...
We made it. This week has been quite epic. With my eldest two finishing Kindy and School, and Phoebe going to her first Daycare concert (which turned into a disaster and had a lot of tears) I’m quite glad...
