snippets of summertime
Thought I'd share these evocative images taken by photographer Olivia Larrain Heiremans, in celebration of high Summer here in Australia. I love the way they perfectly capture the essence of Summertime. My parents are still here in Melbourne for a couple more days, so we're making the most of our time left with them before they head back home to the UK. After two weeks back in Auckland tying up all our loose ends over there and finishing his notice period at work, Curt flies in from Auckland tonight :)
We've found a cute little Victorian cottage to rent only minutes walk from my sisters place and a couple of streets away from the beach and the shops. I am so excited to be living in an actual house rather than an apartment for the first time since I left home a decade ago (wow...nothing like typing that sentence to make you feel old). It's on the tiny side and needs a bit of love and care and a damn good clean but we have our own little back garden! It will be wonderful for the girls to have some outdoor space to run around in, a place for their teepee and paddling pool and we can have BBQ's and eat dinner outside, perfect for hazy summer days. Pictures to follow when we get vaguely organized and if I ever manage to locate the lead for our camera.
Oh and posting may be a little few and far between until we get an internet connection sorted. Hopefully it won't take too long.
