Happy Birthday Amy!

Had a lovely time celebrating my youngest sister's birthday today. Mum baked an awesome mint & chocolate cheese cake, we managed to surprise her with her presents, & more importantly, she loves them.

So Happy Birthday to my awesome, gorgeous, smart, kind, funny sister Amy!

there & back again...

We're home from our sisterly (ad)venture - we had a wonderful time, saw some stunning scenery, did plenty of walking (some parts more difficult than others), ate some really good food, laughed alot, did a bit of shopping & just generally enjoyed ourselves.

There are plenty of photos to share, but I thought I'd start by posting a few of my favourite iPhone shots, as posted on my instagram/tumblr. Lots of other images on our trip tumblr too.

1. Blue Lake, Mt Gambier \\ 2. Umpherston Sinkhole, Mt Gambier \\ 3. Bay of Islands, Great Ocean Road \\ 4. Twelve Apostles, Great Ocean Road \\ 
5. Hopetoun Falls, Otway National Park \\ 6. Lindt Cafe, Melbourne \\ 7. Royal Botanic Gardens, Melbourne.

sisters head east...

My sisters & I are off on an adventure - a road trip, first to Mt Gambier, then along the Great Ocean Road to Apollo Bay, followed by Melbourne, staying for a few days in each place. We're coming home via Broken Hill, so that we can catch up with our sister & niece.

We're planning twelve days of waterfalls, bush walks, amazing scenery, good food, plenty of photographs, fun, early mornings, exploring, a little shopping & lots of laughter.

You can follow our adventures on our tumblr, as well as my instagram & tumblr, with possibly a few posts here & on Kathryn's blog.

This blog + facebook will be pretty quiet & also, my etsy shop will be closed for the fortnight.
