A Long Weekend Edition

Long live the long weekend.
Long over due, after long work weeks.

It was started right with a quiet coffee in my new favourite corner of the living room while the other two slept.

Then spent the weekend exploring new spots, celebrating a birthday with friends and hanging out at home.

I'm not ready for it to end.  We need that third day in the weekend, how else can we relax AND get the chores and errands done.  Like this blog for example!

Vanuatu - A Family Escape!

It was time to stop, it was time to take a break, it was time to escape.  Since going back to work in December and moving house last month we were desperate for a holiday.  So we escaped to Vanuatu!

Very similar and not too far away from Fiji this little island getaway did not disappoint.  We weren't nearly as active as our time in Fiji but we did enjoy a morning hiking excursion to a local waterfall (which sadly was dried up due to a drought) and went out for a snorkel to feed the fish and enjoy the views of the coral reefs.  Olivia to my amazement even got in the water with her Daddy!  Kindred spirits those two.

Not nearly long enough of an escape but it will have to do for now.  We came back a bit more rested and relaxed and I hope to hold on to some of that while we jump back into our reality which is hectic and non-stop.
