• Summer Summer Summer Time

    By Saturday, December 5, 2015 0 No tags Permalink

    Remember when I said we wouldn't wait a whole season before writing again? And it's officially summer here. LOL OOPS. Sorry guys! I'm the worst. These past few months have been so crazy, and admittedly, I did forget about the blog on more than one (possibly 10+) occasions. But, I am here now, and ready ...

  • One Year in Australia

    By Sunday, August 23, 2015 0 No tags Permalink

    Wow, I can't believe it's already been one year since we've arrived in Australia (actually, at this point, it's almost one year + one month). It's been quite a ride. I remember in the weeks and even days leading up to leaving the U.S., it almost felt like we were in a haze... as if we were ...

  • Spring is Coming…

    By Sunday, August 16, 2015 3 No tags Permalink

    Well, this is embarrassing. Has it really been 3 MONTHS since we last wrote?! I laughed to myself because an entire season has gone by since the last update, so I guess you could say we've been hibernating from the blogging world -- hence, the aptly-named title of this post, since spring is only 2 weeks away! I'd ...

  • Winter is Coming…

    By Tuesday, May 12, 2015 2 No tags Permalink

    Happy Tuesday from a chilly day down under! Well, then again, chilly for us is anything below 60°F/15°C (we're not exactly 'winter' people), but I will admit: I do have a thing for autumn. There is something so beautiful in seeing the leaves changing colors, being able to wear boots again, layering up and my personal ...

  • Apartment Tour

    Two posts back-to-back? Shocking, I know! I realized how long overdue this post is, and have been promising so many people that I'd get photos to them over the past few months - so here it is, friends :) - and plus, I was getting some crazy beautiful lighting today, so I couldn't resist. Also, ...

  • Anzac Day

    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Hi everyone! I hope this week has been excellent for you so far. I wanted to dedicate a post to Anzac Day, one ...

  • Great Ocean Road

    By Friday, April 17, 2015 2 No tags Permalink

    Since arriving in Melbourne, Will and I always had the Great Ocean Road on our Melbourne bucket list, but it's one of those things where you live in the city, so you can "go see it anytime". We knew it was the opportune time to go check it out when my mom came to visit, and decided ...

  • Sydney

    By Tuesday, April 7, 2015 0 No tags Permalink

    When my mom and I were planning her trip for when she would be here, I knew there was no way she could come all the way to Australia and not see Sydney! And especially when it's just a quick 45 minute flight from Melbourne. We also registered for the Colour Conference, a women's conference put on by Hillsong ...

  • Yarra Valley

    *Mrs Doubtfire voice* HELLOOOO! Wow, has it really been almost a full month since I've posted something? Sorry for the hiatus there. My lovely mom was visiting us for three adventure-packed, fun and blessed weeks! Because of the extent of said adventures, I'm going to break them up into several different posts over the next few ...

  • Cricket World Cup

    By Thursday, February 26, 2015 2 No tags Permalink

    I've always grown up around cricket, especially as a child. My dad used to play it when he was younger and into adulthood, and even coached the national South African team for several years (as their bowling coach). I remember as a little girl going to his games, but I mainly spent my time running around the ...

  • White Night

    By Monday, February 23, 2015 0 No tags Permalink

    Oh, what a night! A White Night, to be exact. Before we moved to Melbourne, Will and I were watching videos and looking at photos of the city to make a list of places to see, eat and enjoy. We came across a video for White Night, and it blew our minds - the city shutting ...

  • Time Difference

    By Monday, February 16, 2015 5 No tags Permalink

    When we arrived in Australia, there were many things we had to adjust and get used to, such as driving on the other side of the road, Celsius instead of Fahrenheit, and making sure we spelled words correctly (neighbor = neighbour // organize = organise). But among the biggest things we had to adjust to ...
