day 15: a day in pictures

i’ve failed you. quite terribly. 2 days straight of no posting. and i don’t have much of an excuse. to make things slightly worse, i don’t even have pictures from day 15.  my dslr camera no longer had battery life and my iphone decided to tell me i didn’t have enough memory to save any pictures {although it’s been fine since – typical}.  so instead, i will share with you a few photos from my birthday and last week ..

^birthday lunch with one of my besties at our favourite lunch spot wagamama | i realise that this is a pic of just me. julia took the photo then we didn’t take any more! but trust me when i say she was there 😉 and that coconut ice cream with passion fruit goodness and coconut flakes was devine^^

^^my favourite little human being, kelsie standing on her own. best. day. ever. doctors hope by 7 she’ll be able to walk on her own. life’s little things.^^

birthday fun
^^birthday fun with some of my favourite people in the entire world^^

TGIs with Jo^^only the greatest dessert in the history of desserts {given to us by tgi friday’s}. a taste of america #nostalgic | with the bestest train / work buddy = great company!^^

Paul A. Young^^ONLY THE GREATEST CHOCOLATE KNOWN TO MAN. given to me as a birthday gift from my alison. i literally screamed. in the no-she-didn’t-but-she-really-did kinda way. paul a. young’s salted caramel chocolates is the food of the gods. just putting that out there^^


day 16: the meaning of HOME


big hugs & bear hugs. full tummies and “are you sure you’re…” okay{s}?

“one of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night” — maragret mead —

braided hair and swept floors.

laughter and never-feeling-alone.

shared tears. arms over shoulders. encouragement. partake in triumphs.

broken hearts. mended hearts.

“i believe that one can never leave home. i believe that one carries the shadows, the dreams, the fears and the dragons of home under one’s skin, at the extreme corners of one’s eyes and possibly in the gristle of the earlobe.” — maya angelou

“kushe”. plasas. groundnut soup. fufu. africana. sierra leone.

no nonsense.

love. forgiveness.

“strength of character may be learned at work, but beauty of character is learned at home.” — henry drummond —
