About Me

South Africa
My husband, Brett and I live in beautiful South Africa and have been blessed with the most precious family. We have 2 very beautiful and brave daughters, Tianna and Angelee and a very precious little boy called Zac who touched our hearts forever in his 1 day here on earth. We never would have imagined that we would have to live this side of Heaven without our sweet boy who was born with half a heart, but every day Jesus carries us through and is teaching us more than ever how to live, laugh and love fully. A year and a half later, our faithful Great Restorer graciously blessed us once again with another son ... our beloved Gabriel ... a ray of sunshine in all our lives! This blog has been a place where I have been able to journal my journey through loss, hope and choosing to live a life rich in love.

I'm walking on sunshine ... yeah ...

I love the start of a new year. My perspective is always coloured in hope and freshness. I am well rested and refreshed after a holiday FULL of playing, laughing and hanging out with my lovely family. Oh the wonders of a break from the rutt and stress of everyday busyness :)  

New years eve we turned the music up nice and load and danced with the kids until they were too tired to carry on. It is such a fun memory that I am going to carry into this year ... to live, laugh and dance more!! 

We were also blessed with the opportunity of having my sis and her family to see the new year in with. I love the dynamic of a full house of children laughing, playing ...  just having good clean fun together. We all swam ... played card games ... the kiddies made up their own little games ... it was WONDERFUL!!! It was so heart sore to see my kiddies cry when their cuzzies, aunty and uncle had to go home after 10 wonderful, full days! But at the same time ... my heart rejoiced over the memories that were made, the bonds that keep growing tighter and all the fun to still look forward to for future visits this year.

Here are a few pics from our holiday ...
