And I’m not talking about my squishy belly.
I was hanging the washing out last night when I glanced up at the sky and almost cried. The sunset-tinged clouds were so beautiful!
A huge smile spread across my face as I stood mesmerised on my lawn.
Until recent years, I didn’t give a toss about natural beauty. I was a concrete jungle girl, through and through.
My idea of recreational fun was shopping in malls, at outlet centres, along Fifth Avenue … Beauty was a Marc Jacobs sale rack.
Now I yearn to meander around New Zealand’s South Island or snorkel on Heron Island … pity I’ve blown all my money on re-registering my bloody car.
I don’t just enjoy looking at nature, I love photographing it too.
I get such a kick out of capturing the moments, which is my excuse for spamming you with some of my favourites from the last few years …
I’ve been so lucky to have those experiences … usually with my spunky boyf by my side.
It’s another reminder that while my life has its dramas, it’s pretty bountiful on balance.
