Friday Favourites...

This week for the first time I am linking up with Finding Joy for Friday Favorite Things. I found it via Our House Of Pink and thought it was such a wonderful and refreshing thing. To me its a reminder to look at the blessings in my life and appreciate the small things.

So here are my favourite things this friday, please join in and link up.

My Boy
My goodness he just makes me melt, especially when caught trying to take a photo of himself on the camera, jam on toast smeared face and all.

My Girl
She is growing up to be such an amazing, kind, caring, gentle and smart girl. She is precious and such a character. I love how she gets herself into poses for photos and makes me wait until she thinks it is just right. Makes me laugh every. single. time.

The Hubby
Even after 11 years together my heart still skips a beat when I hear him getting home from work. Its not always easy, its not always fun. There have been some hard times, gosh has there ever. But there is always a deep love and friendship. And as the hubby says, no matter what he will always be my husband and I will always be his wife, there are no other options. Oh how I love this man.

Cups of Coffee and Tea
The simple act of making and savouring a nice hot cup of tea or coffee is incredibly relaxing for me. I love the moment when the boy is finally down for a nap and I sit down with a hot cup. And I breath a sigh of relief.

Blue Skies and The Ocean
The beauty of nature, such a blessing. I appreciate it so much more living so far from it. How lucky we were to live so close by that we were there every week. That is one thing I miss about the Gold Coast.

I have zero willpower when it comes to chocolate. Perfect for snuggling up on the couch with the hubby. And dipping into a hot cup of coffee!


Whoopie Pies
My birthday dessert. Devine.

Fresh Cut Flowers
Such beauty and I love bringing nature inside the home.

Sometime a glass of wine is just what you need. Brown Brothers Cienna. Add a bubblebath, soft music, candles and chocolate and you have pure perfection!

Your little ones are certainly a favorite! My kids love to grin like that for the camera.

And what sweet words to say about your husband. A blessing indeed.

And, of course, I have to completely DITTO the coffee fave. I'm drinking mine now....
