Back Home & In Love










Hi everyone. I am back.......from possibly the best holiday I have ever had. A big statement I know. But well deserved. Can you imagine your perfect holiday? Maybe you have already had it, maybe it is still coming. It's that holiday when you feel so alive and happy, and that feeling doesn't stop, the entire time.
Here are some pic's to sum it all up for you.
Thanks to my dear friend Jody for guest blogging for me whilst I was away. Thanks for making her feel welcome.
Exciting times ahead.
Hope you are all well. I have lots of things to share with you in the coming weeks.
Hugs. xx
all pictures taken by me...and my family!

  2. I lived in Vanuatu when my big one was a baby. They are the most beautiful people in the world. I miss them. So glad you had the best time. It's a magical place where time stands still and you live moment to moment. A-M xx PS It was tough back then finding someone who knew how to make a cappuccino though! #verysimplelife

  18. Looks to be fabulous weather and a glorious time indeed. We are heading off tomorrow for a 10-day trip to Nepal. My husband has dreamt about making a trip there since the 70's when he couldn't cross the border from India into Nepal, so this is his dream come true. Even the kids are excited. Have a wonderful rest of the week. Tammy

  42. Looks beautiful. Vanuatu is on my ever growing list of places to visit. Can't complain too much. Just got back from Sydney today which was a trip down memory lane, and a taste of 'BIG' city life. Happy holidays Kylie

  43. Oh, I know what you mean! I'm having the best holiday right now. Two months in a spa resort in FL. Beauty everywhere. Fabulous Gym. Dozens of classes daily from Cardio to Pilates to Yoga, etc. Waking up to the gorgeous wide open ocean and falling asleep to the sound of the waves is a dream come true. I want to live like this forever!!
