Falling in love again...

With three months off work to do whatever I like, I am getting back in touch with things that I haven't done in a while...
Falling in love again with all of the things that I have always enjoyed is amazing... 

Photography



















Capturing these beautiful moments makes me so happy... I take on average 600-1000 photos at any given event & love to come home, transfer all my files to the computer & edit all of my favourites, adding them to Facebook for eagerly awaiting family members...

I have recently entered some old favourites from the last few years into the Shutterbug Competition, not with any desire to win but the excitement of sharing my work with other people like me! More branching out to come in this area... Still-life & landscapes are catching my eye more & more.


Reading




Finally, I can sit down again & get lost in a book, from my old Harlan Coben favourites to new fads like The Hunger Games. So nice to be curled up on the couch getting familiar with characters & places I love to escape with. Or in a coffee shop surrounded by a buzz of people that suddenly becomes a dull drone in the background as the story takes my whole attention... Bliss.


People



The most precious & best part of my every day... the people in it. Family, friends & even strangers. I have taken to my old ways: creating & attending all events possible!
Recently I hosted a Morning Tea at my house for all of the wonderful ladies in my life... There was plenty of food & laughs to be had! 
Road tripping to see cousins in my time off is going to be a blast (especially with the new CD player in my car) & the simple pleasure I get out of saying hello to the employees at my regular shopping/take-out & appointment places makes every day a little brighter.

With all of this renewed love in my life, I am looking forward to getting back to work in October & starting fresh with a whole bunch of new activities, people & motivation.


What are the loves of your life that brighten up your every day?
Any favourite books I should know about from fellow readers?
