Relaxed Summer holiday style was in order for today . The weather is pleasantly warm and sunny, just perfect in fact to end 2018 and usher in 2019.
I do hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and enjoyed spending time with family and friends. We certainly enjoyed our small and relaxed family gathering.
The weather gods were kind this year and we enjoyed Christmas lunch outside in the garden. John and I were joined by our sons Zac and Callum , our daughter-in-law Sarah ,my sister Lyn and of course baby Harry, who slept soundly for a good part of the day.
I had to include this shot I took of Harry and his proud parents under the rose arch on Christmas Day.
Now that Christmas is done and dusted it is time to focus on the coming year, not that I do New Year Resolutions, always a waste of time in my book. Merely a time to reflect on what is important to me and what areas may need a rethink .
One of these areas is to brush up on my easy casual style – not one of my strong suits. I am one to overdress rather than underdress. Summer here in Australia is always a casual affair , mostly shorts , tee shirts and rubber thongs, not me at all. Today’s outfit is my version based on items I have had and worn for a few Summers just not together- the top and pants are Moyuru , so light and comfy , a black Paula Ryan tee shirt under the top , beads and bangle stack, charity shop finds and silver Ara sandals, bought retail locally at a bargain price as they have a flaw.
So excited , this book arrived today, the newly released Advanced Love by Ari Seth Cohen . So far I have really only had a quick peek but the photographs and stories are just wonderful. This was a Christmas present from John – quite apt as we have been together for 45 years. I never ceased to be amazed at the speed of things , the book was released on Christmas Eve in the U.S. and arrived here today, now that’s quicker than I can get a book from elsewhere in Australia.
Wishing all my kind readers a healthy and happy New Year.
