- Ten years ago I sat down at my laptop, and I started a blog. I was a Mum to a newborn, severely sleep deprived, working full time as a nanny to four kids and taking Lacey to work with me - and I craved something just for me - so I started a blog. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Blogging back then wasn’t anything like it is today. There was no money, no fame, no photoshopped perfection. It was simply a sharing of stories among strangers around the world. It started off as a private weight loss diary, and slowly I opened it up to people and started making friends with people from all corners of the world. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fast forward to this past weekend where I got to celebrate the past decade with my nearest and dearest in a beautiful home in the Byron Hinterland. I’ve been lucky enough to travel the world, create an app, do some pretty cool things and best of all make friends with people everywhere {through my blog, Facebook, photo a day, and the gift exchange}. It’s been a wild, wonderful, beautiful, {and sometimes a little bit crazy} ride. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ My dreams have never been lofty {but I’m ever so grateful for every day of the last ten years}, my dreams were simply to create a life where I got to spend as much time as possible with these two... and that dream has come true. I feel so very lucky. Thank you to all of you for being here and helping make that dream a reality for me. 😘 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ A super big thank you to @homeaway for helping me celebrate ten years and hosting us for the weekend. I’ve shared lots of photos and videos in my stories and will share more in a blog post soon. 😘 #homeaway #collab

- And tomorrow she’ll be five. FIVE. No one ever told me how I’d feel on days like these. That I’d feel equal parts joy and heartache. Joy that she’s so beautiful, smart, compassionate, creative, kind, funny {so funny!} and loving. Then the heartache, because despite spending the majority of her life so far together I can’t for the life of me figure out where the days disappeared to. I've wanted to spend as much time as possible with her, because I don’t want to miss a minute. She also doesn’t want to miss a minute with me, because even if I try and discreetly shower without anyone knowing, she’s there, watching moments later. . In the past I shared everything with Lacey, because she was my first and because social media was different back then. I’ve kinda, selfishly, kept most of Lulu to myself, because I’ve really enjoyed parenting her {not that I didn’t with Lacey, of course!}. She’s just joy, and I’m so lucky to be her mum. And you can bet I’m gonna soak up this last day of her being four, and take all the pictures. It’s what I do. . #instaxplorer #fujiinstaxaus

- Yesterday we left paradise {thank you @outriggerreef for having us, it was magic!} and told the kids we were heading home. I am usually hopeless at secrets, but somehow I managed to keep this one. Instead of going to the airport we actually headed to @disneyaulani for a few nights. It’s a real treat but we knew the kids would love it. Their little faces when they finally realised what was happening was priceless. Lacey cried because she was so happy and Lulu still doesn’t know what is happening! 😂 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Have you ever surprised your kids? Or did your parents ever surprise you? Lots more photos in my stories.

- Every time I share a new list for the month, someone from some part of the world is sure to pipe and say that they’re confused because of the time difference... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And now, here I am. It’s Monday night and back home we’re already in tomorrow. 🤷‍♀️ So I’m sharing the list now because tomorrow I’ll be thinking I’m living in yesterday and not remember or something. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #fmspad #fmsphotoaday #photoaday #photoadaychallenge

- 👋 This is your Monday reminder that you can handle anything this week will throw at you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Got such a huge week this week; flying to Sydney for a special project, making two birthday cakes for my little niece, so much work to do, AND I still haven’t watched last night’s episode of Love Island {don’t judge!}. Have you got a quiet week ahead? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @fujiinstaxaus #instaxplorer

- What a month! 🙌 Gotta be frank, I love June for my birthday but hate that it also happens to be EOFY {part and parcel of working for myself}. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I’ve loved sharing lots of photos using my @fujiinstaxaus over the past month and think I’ll keep sharing a few, because I love them so. Don’t forget if you want to win one, check back through my feed for the giveaway {the pink background with the black and white camera}. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ How was your June? Good or not so good? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ plant | photo a day | #fmspad #fms_plant #fujiinstaxaus #instaxplorer

- I love cooking with what’s in season. I went to the markets last weekend and bought the fresh ingredients for this soup, and they cost me under $5. Bargain! It’s a Thai Pumpkin Soup that’s only 1 SmartPoint in the Weight Watchers Your Way+ program, and it’s bloody delicious! I roasted the vegies to give them more flavour, I then added red curry paste and some light coconut cream, and chicken stock. If you wanted to add a little more flavour you could always add some fried shallots too {1 teaspoon = 1 SmartPoint}. Going to freeze these up and heat them up for easy lunches and dinners. Would you like the recipe? I can pop it on my blog if you’re keen! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Winter my way definitely means pumpkin. Give it to me in a roast, soup, salad or stir-fry. What ingredients are you cooking with this winter? #WWAmbassadorAuNZ #WinterYourWay

- This week this kid goes to camp. She’s been so nervous, and I know how she feels cos I was that kid that got super, dooper home sick at all my camps but probably hid it well {I remember quietly crying into my sleeping bag at night}. The days are so long with kids, but the years fly by. She’s a big kid now. 😩😢 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ {fyi: the camp is ten minutes up the road so we came to a decision, along with her principal, to just send her for the days and pick her up as everyone is heading to bed. Sometimes I worry I’m pandering to her worries sometimes but I also know how lovely it is to have someone that totally supports you and doesn’t force you into a place where you’re too uncomfortable. Who knows though. Parenting is a guessing game}. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ black and white | photo a day | #fmspad #fms_blackandwhite #instaxplorer #fujiinstaxaus
