These days are full of exciting preparations and celebrations.. Our wedding anniversary, Ben's birthday and Tallow's birthday are all in the beautiful month of September. And with the countdown on to Tallow's first birthday party on Sunday, we are full of rainbow party cheer.
And just in time for the party celebrations, the garden has exploded with an abundance of snapdragons and rainbow chard.
We are also preparing our little home for some much loved visitors. We are so blessed to have our families are coming down from Queensland to celebrate Tallow's birthday. These sunshine filled days have been just perfect for throwing the windows open, enjoying a spot of Spring cleaning and fresh sun dried washing.
And of course sunshine filled days are also perfect for enjoying picnics and playing in the park. How I love watching these two exploring together.
We've been embracing handmade gifts this year and Ben's birthday present was quite the family affair, as we got a bit creative with Miss Tallow's ever so sweet little 11 month old footprints. I can't stop smiling every time I see them!
These days I am full of gratitude and nostalgia. I can't believe how quickly the past twelve months has flown. There's so much to say and yet right now, I just can't quite find the right words. There are many moments to be thankful for, a year full of so much love and joy.
So here's to the radiant beauty of the season and this magic and transformation new moon. I'm beyond excited to spend the weekend with our families. It will be the first time in years everyone has come together and I know it's going to be a very special time indeed.
Things might be a little quite around here for the rest of the week as everyone arrives and the celebrations begin, but I am so looking forward to sharing the weekend and all our adventures with you next week. For some sneak peeks at Tallow's rainbow party, pop over and visit me on Instagram.
