Throwing You a Bone

I’ve started so many blog posts with “It’s been a long time since my last blog…” I’m afraid this one is no different. In fact, it’s been so long that I kind of forgot how to create a post. Blogger has made a bunch of updates, I forgot the code changes I used to make, I couldn’t find my Photoshop filters, etc. I hopped on my computer the other day thinking this was going to be super quick and easy and I would be done. Nope. Three days later I am finishing this post up.

We have had a great year full of lots of changes. We are still in Melbourne and we love it. Charles has gone through a bunch of changes at work, for the most part all very positive. Jack started child care about 8 months ago, which he seems to love. Childcare allowed me the ability to start freelancing again and I am really enjoying it. After overcoming a few health hurdles Jack is now walking and running and we are doing our best to keep up with him.

I would like to say that one of my new years resolutions is to blog once a week, but I try not to make resolutions that I know I will not keep. So, for those of you who have been begging me to blog more (Gram, Grandma and Dr. Honeydew) this one short post will have to do for now. Enjoy!

Happy New Year!

My parents went to the Australian Open…

…and all I got was this giant tennis ball.

Charles and I got a rare baby-free night a few weeks ago and went to the opening night of the Australian Open. The tickets were work sponsored so we had great seats along with free drinks, dinner and sweet little goodie bags. Poor Jack didn’t make our as well as his parents.

A Day at the Beach

We are two months into summer and we only just this past weekend made it to the beach. Although beach time is not nearly as relaxing as it used to be, I wish we had gone sooner. Instead of making things easier on ourselves and just driving to a local beach 10 minutes away we decided to drive for an hour to Sorrento, which is to the south east of Melbourne. Our friends Molly and T.H. came with us and the day couldn’t have been more beautiful or perfect.




Jack even got his first taste of sushi (fresh seaweed). The only negative was a baby that decided he didn’t need to sleep, at all. I guess the beach was just too exciting.
