We're off

Ok, so we are heading out on to our nice long vacation. Sadly I won't have access to my blog and will have to post catch up posts on the wedding and the rest of the trip. I'm so excited, it is actually really cool that I get a re-do, so to speak. Not that I had a problem with my actual wedding, but this time, there's no nerves or stress (mainly because my mom did most of the planning with this one, but also cause we are already married).

This time I decided to get creative and make myself a none floral bouquet to go with the Traditional theme of the celebrations. Not the most perfect, but I love it, and seriously hope no one requests that I throw the bouquet. Seriously don't plan on doing that...lol. Isn't it actually bad luck to throw a bouquet twice? Lol, I just made that up.


Enjoy your holidays friends.x

Our 1st Anniversay

It's been the most amazing year yet. People keep reminding me that this is supposed to be the honeymoon phase...but I don't know, doesnt feel like it. Not to say we won't have any disagreements or conflicts, but I think we have grown tremendously in our relationship together, and are more (and will continue to get more and more equipped) for this amazing journey ahead of us. And every single day, I look at my husband and I wonder, how is it I am so blessed to be married to the most loving, caring, supporting and (bonus) good looking man known to me.

So if you happen to read this, honey, I LOVE YOU and Thank you.
Heres' to many many more years.

Shut down.

These past two weeks have dragged. Dragged I tell you. Today our offices shut down and I will switch on my office computer again in 21days...woooooh hoooo.

The next three weeks are going to be something else. Our "wedding", the 1900km we have to drive to get to it and then our road trip along the east coast of South Africa with my hubby, sister, sister in law and her fiance (who have come down from Germany for the wedding and visit family). So, I will take this opportunity to practice my German with my sister in law ( my hubby is no help at all...lol). Who knows, I might be able to cross it off my baby bucket list in January (hahahaha, I kill myself!).

Its been one of those weeks, putting together important travel documents, getting my dress (I actually don't have it, just a few finishing touches then we good to go)...the list goes on. But I'm just happy its all done.

Enjoy your weekend folks.

Taking a  walk with my husby, Tessa and Teddy. I love it when the jacaranda's are in bloom. All you see is beds of purple on the side walks.

This is what I was wearing.

Happy Tuesday :)

What does it mean?

Yesterday someone said something rude in passing in a conversation. I was so irritated and annoyed and the whole day I thought of all these things I should have said and how I would treat them from now on. And while I was busy telling my sister and hubs later, I realised something. Responding to someone in kindness when they are mean (on purpose or otherwise) is in no way a sign of weakness. I find that way to often, after reacting calmly, I go back and replay the conversation and kick myself for not having been harsher or wittier in my response. And sadly I keep all these events locked up somewhere, I don't know, I guess to justify future meanness towards these individuals or maybe to remind myself how mean they are when I let my guard slip around them. What baggage!!! I never thought of it that way. But looking back at my response, as the conversation went on I could see her "warming up to me" (for lack of better words). How could my meanness have made the situation better? I don't always sit down an think things through and come to such sensible conclusions, but I'm so glad this thought crossed my mind. Letting go of the baggage. There!

Anyways...moving on. In the spirit of Faith's #YesImWearingThis.
Sometimes it's too warm even for a cardie, but a soon as there is a light breeze, my blazers come in handy. So yeah, there will be a lot of blazer action up in her' from time to time.
