Little piece of sunshine

We had a magnificent day yesterday. An 'adventure' (as Angus says), filled with sunshine and laughter and so much love. Caught the bus, met my Mama in the city, wandered around the Botanic Gardens and enjoyed a spot of lunch by the harbour, at the Opera House. It was a perfect day, in every way. I love my Mama more than words will ever describe and the relationship she has with my boys, I possibly love even more. My heart could seriously melt watching them all together. So many happy moments captured through the lens once again and it was difficult to cull them down for this post... so in the end, I just threw in all of my favourites.

A fitting segue for me to graciously accept the sunshine award from two lovelies Veronica and Tammi. Thank you beautiful girls. I couldn't think of a better post to respond with my answers on. So here goes:

* Colour ~ Blue & Red
* Animal ~ The big cats... all of them
* Non-alcoholic drink ~ Water & freshly squeezed juice & Coke 
* Facebook or Twitter ~ Facebook
* Getting or giving presents ~ LOVE giving
* Flower ~ Rose & Frangipani
* Pattern ~ Spots & Dots & Gingham/Checkered
* Passion ~ Family & Friends & Music & Writing
* Number ~ 7

And now to pass the sunshine award baton on to five other gorgeous bloggers... if they so choose to accept of course:

Kymmie @ A day in the life of us
Teresa @ Amelie in Wonderland
Nicole @ Bubby Makes Three
Jen @ Let it go
Ashley @ Piper & Poppies


  1. Lovely photos. I feel exactly the same about seeing my Mum with my kids. Even on the daily skype calls we have it's pretty special - so I can't wait to have more time with her and them once we're back in Blighty. Glad you had such a gorgeous day. x

  2. What a gorgeous sunshiny day you had! Days like that are so good for the soul. I feel just the same way about my mum - so special.

    I love seeing my kids with their Grandma. Super special stuff.

  5. Just gorgeous, Jules. It brings back so many memories for me. Have you read 'Alexander's Outing' by Pamela Allen ( it's qa 'must read' for any Sydneysiders! J x

  6. Your boys always have the most beautiful smiles and I find myself smiling at them through my computer. You are an amazing Mum Jules, they way you create such beautiful memories for them. Xxx

  7. How beautiful.
    It's such a special relationship they have with grandparents - and a joy to watch.
