So Excited






Do these images look familiar? Remember that Beach House in New Zealand I was telling you all about? Well guess what. I leave in two weeks to head straight there! That's right my friends I am off overseas to Hawkes Bay New Zealand to bring this beautiful home into my life for a little while. I am so darn excited and can't wait to share this place with you all too! Here are some more photo's of this gorgeous house.
