When I asked her name...

When I asked her name,
and she said Venice,
I knew right then that I wouldn't stand a chance...

'Tis the Season...

Written by Heather on December 22nd, 2014.      0 comments


It's the season of joy... a time to reflect... a time to be grateful!

Every year brings new challenges and new love, times that test you, and things that bring you more joy than you could ever imagine. How different is your Christmas this year compared to last year? What's your joy this Christmas? ...

For our dear friends Lauren & Mark, the word JOY comes in a sweet wee package with two beautiful eyes, one button nose, a set of luscious lips, 10 divine little twinkle toes, 8 perfect wee fingers and two perfect thumbs up! He's 6 and half weeks old and answers to the name 'my darling'.... or James to his friends!

The Ever Changing Christchurch...

Written by Doug on December 18th, 2014.      0 comments


It was great being out in the rain today.. And the Re:Start mall is looking fully prepped for Christmas shoppers..
Heard of more Cafe's and shops opening, and Christchurch having a comeback in full swing!
I have seen & photographed so many places that have opened this last year!! So many new faces, and people about...

Christchurch is an ever changing city that has most definitely got itself together quite nicely, and is spoiling us all with choices of places to go, things to buy, and amazingness to see!!!
Never mind the increasing amount of choices for places to head for a coffee or drink...

Our Thoughts are Yours Sydney..

Written by Doug on December 16th, 2014.      0 comments

With Sydney being so close to New Zealand and with many Kiwi's living over there, including both my brothers, I have had many chances to go visit, especially recently for my brother's wedding... So it is completely startling to hear of today's news...

Our Thoughts and Prayers go out to "The Rainbow City", and we hope that all returns to normal as soon as possible...

Happy!!!

So there is this band that I've been waiting to see since I first heard music, waaaay back when I was born... further ago... even before I was born. When I was a twinkle in my Father's eye... my Father who loves this band more than I do!

After missing out on my only 2 chances, once due to my complete lack of money, at age 10, and again when I respected my mother's advice that once you make plans you never cancel them, especially if it's for something else that has come along that could be better.......

They just have that *spark*. A true connection. They are... the real deal.

Last month we travelled to each end of the country and across the ditch for weddings. And yesterday, the first wedding of December we literally did not leave our neighbourhood for everything. Chontelle & Steven's wedding hit the spot for me...
