Our wedding anniversary falls in a fairy busy month - November and just the other day Todd came home and told me to pack a small bag, we were celebrating early!
Celebrating in August, the month that he proposed, our nearly two years of marriage!
And gosh, I feel like we have so much to be grateful for and celebrate.

There was also a little package of 'cotton' - fitting for our second year -  some teeny little pants and a bib for bub.

We headed into Northbridge and spent an afternoon feet up enjoying the room. Todd nipped out to the cafe next door for tea, coffee and sweet treats.
We then headed out for a roof top drink before heading to an amazing Indian restaurant where I don't remember ever being so satisfied! Twice cooked, sticky and sweet lamb ribs, salty spicy squid, duck korma and fall apart pork. We sat at the bar and enjoyed the chatter surrounding us.

Afterwards we headed to Alabama Song where to Todds delight there were peanuts on the floor. Loved the atmosphere here as we sat back and enjoyed it start to fill up. Later a live band came through and the party was in full swing.

Morning meant the hunt for eggs somewhere on William St before we headed out to Guildford to celebrate Ash's birthday.

A perfect weekend feeling full of love and happiness!

Some winter moments ...

Cold afternoon walks at the park with Rusty. Lucky for me Todd has been doing most of the leg work.

Our fridge makes me so happy right now ... dreams coming true and weddings of close friends to look forward to

Asgeir concert at the Astor Theatre and celebrating Steph's birthday

Happy little posies all lined up ready for a hens party

Cheese table set up at said hens party

Morning coffee and cake in the sun with Rusty and Todd. Slow Sundays.

I've always wondered what was over on the cliffs that you look out at when you swim at Ocean Beach. Little did I know it's a whole community - protected land - and you can go explore!
We all bundled in the car the next afternoon and went for a drive. It's only about 1 km away from Denmark across the water but the drive takes you close to forty five minutes!
What a beautiful beach though - Anvil Beach.
I'd love to go back in summer for a swim. There's natural rock pools and the waves were crashing and fizzing over the rocks. It would be great for snorkelling I'm sure. A really love afternoon exploring a new part of the this cape!

The peaceful view from our house for the long weekend. So many birds to wake up and listen to!

A beautiful (and freezing!) first afternoon down in Denmark at Ocean Beach. Greeted with a beautiful rainbow we watched the waves come in and walked along the moonscape-like sandbar. It was spitting with rain here and there and the beach was lined with blue bottles!

Everything we've been hoping, waiting and wishing for.

Made in Autumn, due in Summer
