a tale of two hearts

little tilly

Dear Tilly,

Thanks for coming by to visit Lucas last week, next time you come over I promise I won't shove my camera in your face...half as much! Oh and you'll be welcome to wear just your nappy and crawl around on the grass with Lucas if you like. But feel free to look just as sweet and cute as you do in these pic's, I'm sure you won't have trouble with that :)

dad's home!

Someone get's a little excited when Dad comes home early!!

pool side with nana and pop

It was a scorcher on Sunday and we were fortunate enough to spend Sunday evening at Nana and Pop's place splashing around in the pool. This was your first swim at Nana and Pop's and you clearly enjoyed yourself!!
This pic of you and Pop makes me laugh. You know, nothing special just two old mates chilling in the pool, having a beer and laughing at each others jokes!

pharmacoeconomics - done!

I was deleting some photos on the computer to make room for all the photos we've been taking of Lucas when I stumbled across these. I can't believe this was a year and a month ago, feels like a life time away now! 

I remember when I graduated with my undergrads years ago saying I'd never go back to uni - so much for that! Working full time and studying part time isn't exactly my idea of fun but the pain was definitely worth it. So thankful to be enjoying the fruit of it all now :)

I was genuinely scared when I started this course at Monash. I wasn't sure if I had what it took to get through it. So thankful for the way you and others around me believed in me when I didn't.  It's such a freeing experience when you achieve something you didn't think you were capable of. Makes you question other limitations you've subconsciously set for yourself.

Thanks for insisting that we fly down to Melbourne for the graduation ceremony. It seemed like a crazy thing to do given that I was happy enough to have the certificate posted but I'm thankful for how proud you were and how much you wanted to celebrate the achievement.
Do you remember what was waiting for us at the airport in Melbourne when we arrived? That bright yellow canary car. How bright was it!! I felt like a total hoon driving around in that thing! 
 Ahh Melbourne in sunshine. A rare sight.
On the left - what we'd all like to believe study looks like. You know, glamorous, all it involves is wearing a cap and gown and casual sitting on a bench. On the right - what the last year leading up to the photo on the left actually felt like, pure pain.
 Graduate Certificate in Pharmacoeconomics! DONE. 
We celebrated with dinner at a little Japanese restaurant before rushing back to the airport to fly home to Sydney.

little audrey

Dear Audrey,

You little miss are as beautiful as your mum is hilarious and in a few years time you'll learn that is a whole lot of beautiful!!

I hope one day you look back on these images of you and your mamma and are reminded that she's always loved you.

x Lucas' mummy

This last one is my favorite of you both.You are such a great mum Nat. She is so lucky to be loved by you - cause you rap to her and that there is true LOVE ;)

big smiles and little fingers

I can't get enough of you little man.
