Just one of my favourite days ever.
We woke early to find out I was pregnant. Months, years of heart ache, set backs, new doctors and diagnosis's, surgeries and then suddenly there it was. The news we'd been hoping for and working towards.
By chance Nerida had asked us to help out on that particular day with a photoshoot to use her new lens and help promote her gorgeous little business down south.
Who knew that these photos would become so meaningful! Keeping our secret close for the next four weeks, I can see the happiness in our body language and faces as we soaked up the love and luck we were feeling!

Halfway this weekend to meeting this little babe growing away!
Friday night was a special one - lying in bed, Todd was able to feel the first thumps of a kick.
One day before our big scan where they said the baby was growing well.
Just in time for some sunshine, coffee, new pictures and just a whole lot of lovely feelings.

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!
