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.

A girl let loose for the day =o) Can you see my HUGE smile!!!!

I am up early this morning and so excited for an "out and about" day with two very glam and special ladies in my life. I am so excited to put on some sparkly shoes and hit the town! 
(Oh my word! Have you ever tried to take a picture of your own feet? If only you could have been a fly on the wall for this one. After numerous shots I took this one with my feet up against the wall!!! Oh the adventures of being a blogger! hee hee)

I am so thankful that in between a very sobering week, I have two lovely ladies who just happen to be part of my family who I can hang out with. We are able to laugh, cry, shop, share hearts, drink coffee and even share a sneaky piece of chocolate cake together (surely the calories don't count when the cake is shared hey? That's my theory and I'm sticking with it!!) 
What do you do and who do you sneak out with when you need a respite from the "crazy lane" of life?
Have a beautiful day xxx

Been thinking about you, and I am so glad you are getting out.
May I just say - nothin' like a cute pair a shoes. Fun! Fun!
My favorite escape to do is drink coffee and play Rummy with my oldest sister, brother in law and whoever else happens to be hanging around. I only get to vist every few years so...
Praying for God's grace to surround you and His Hope to give you peace.

Thank you for the comments lovely ladies. I had such a beautiful morning. Amazing finds and special memories.
Jo - thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement. It means so much to me. I have to say I like your idea of relaxing. I also love to drink coffee and play scrabble with my sister.

Hiya pretty lady!

I had sooooo much fun shopping today! Our sparkly shoes carried us far and beyond (*^,) I'm looking forward to many, many more fun outings!!

PS. For the shoe shot - take the pic upside down and then turn it right-side up when you upload it, I learnt this hard way!

Love you lots my friend!
Nisha xoxoxo

Oh Yeah! Surely there's coffee in heaven?? Right? =o]

Janine said...

Thanks for the tip lovely Nisha! I was wondering this morning how you get such great shots for your "Shoe Chronicles"! That is brilliant. I LOVED today. Thanks for being such a great shopping partner ... and that roti - the BEST I've ever eaten.

Jo - YES!!! There is going to be plenty of coffee in Heaven for us. He did make the coffee bean for us after all =) Yay Jesus. I love you so much for that!
