A kick back to the 80s…a retro classic!

I don’t know if you were anything like me as a child but the above birthday cake book was a favourite read for me! I would painstakingly pore over this lovely books birthday cake pictures and try and decide which one I would like! Well….after looking through this book for Noah’s birthday I realised I hadn’t actually had any of these cakes for my birthday as a child :) Not that I was birthday cake deprived at all :) but Dan and I thought why don’t we choose cakes from this book for our birthday for a bit of fun!

Hence, the birth of the delicious butterfly cake!!

Thankyou lovley chefs for making a retro classic a reality!

A splash of colour for inspiration…

In amongst the days and weeks that weave in and out of our lives I love to look for things that bring joy and beauty to the everyday. Sometimes words cannot adequately express beauty… enjoy these blooms…

… some green…

…and yellow…

Thankyou for the beautiful photos of beauty from your world dear mum!

This past week we have had the joy of having my lovely sister Luana and her husband Mitchell staying with us before they shifted to Holland for a few years. The week was full of many special times together and Noah was loving having his auntie and uncle staying over! Above is a photo of Noah, Luana and Fred (the dog:) after Fred was given a bath!

A special farewell cake made by my sister Kim :)

…and our family all together in the one place! We love you Lu and Mitch!
