Two Seasons

Six months of her (well it's actually seven months now, but #mumlife).

Two seasons of this radiant new soul filling our home with joy, teaching us about ourselves and the world around us more as the days go by.

She rolls and commando crawls,
she gets into cupboards and smashes yoghurt down like it's a competition,
she growls and squeals.

We fall in love with her over and over, as the seasons change and she shows us a little more of her personality. As Spring comes we await the next chapter, her first steps, the many food fights and days spent out in the sun picking flowers and singing those old nursery rhymes.

To capture this moment in time with our darling Froggy we had my friend Natalie take some family photos, at home, where Audrey-Lee spends hours playing, sleeping and growing.

Moonriver: Lady of The Lake

One of the sweetest tragedies is someone who doesn't know how to dream, to imagine, to look beyond what is right in front of them.

Some say the lady of the lake is a dreamer, caught up in fairytales, and a world that is not hers for the taking.

Others say she is a wild thing that can't be tamed, that will never truly be understood.

She is a woman who isn't afraid to explore and experience new things, new ideas, new realities.

Moonriver, is for her.

"Moon river, wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're going, I'm going your way

Two drifters, off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end, waiting, round the bend
My Huckleberry Friend, Moon River, and me"

Moonriver inspired by the song of the same name

Moonriver: Scarlet

Can you guess who did it?

Was it Mr Plum in the kitchen with the candlestick, or maybe Mrs Brown in the lounge with the rope? Or perhaps it was Miss Scarlet, a woman of fiery nature and a mind that wondered far away from where she'd ever been?

People are often lost at sea, in times where the fog guides ships off course and men to worlds unknown.

Could Miss Scarlet merely be the scapegoat for something much more sinister?

Kitten D'Amour, an Australian brand that favours styles inspired by ages past, transforms women into the Monroe of their dreams, or the Hepburn they so admire. Their garments are sewn in a way that tells a tale, some of romance, some of lust and some, like the tale here... of suspense.

Moonriver: The Bay

A place that is so un-mistakenly built for Winter, Melbourne is coated with a sheet of fog most mornings and as the days get shorter, Moonriver seems to whisper over the waves of the bay and I layer myself in shades of cream and tan. These frozen mornings where the blue of the sky reflects on the water below and the once bustling jetty is silent, sitting, waiting, for seasons to come.
