Life Lately & An Aussie Blogger Giveaway!

I am always a little behind real life time on the blog. Over the past week and a half I have been recapping our fabulous wine country weekend, but that was actually almost a month ago. These past few weeks we have been laying low and staying local in anticipation for lots of travel (and visitors) to come in the next few weeks. Here’s a peak into our life lately…

Exploring what our neighborhood has to offer, like this free photography exhibit!

Brunching at yummy local cafes… falafel eggs anyone?

Enjoying this gorgeous weather, it’s been sunny and 70’s during the day and absolutely wonderful.

Lunching with the lazy ladies. Unfortunately I am beginning to work every day lately so these are few and far between now.

Travis saw Hulk Hogan on TV the other night, got really excited and immediately ordered these… his inner 10 year old is jumping for joy right now.

IMG_2116 Part of enjoying the pretty weather, we have gone hiking the past two weekends…

The first was a little more extreme than we anticipated with super steep climbs (think rock climbing without a rope) and grass that was taller than us.

DSC_0083Last Saturday’s hike was a little more our speed and had the best view at the end. I will be writing more on both of those later…

Back to real time- I am heading out bright and early tomorrow morning to meet my mother and sister in law in Sydney for a few days. Then we will back in Brisbane a few days followed by trips to Cairns and New Zealand. Busy, busy, busy!

NOW for the exciting news!

TUMBLRlogoI am linking up with some of my favorite Aussie bloggers for a fun giveaway. We all take sooo many pictures these days but how many of those even make it out of your phone/camera let alone on your walls? Today we are giving away a custom watercolor (painted from YOUR photograph) by Jason from This Painted Life. He makes watercolors of people’s homes, families or any other special memory. You send him the picture, he paints it and it is delivered to your doorstep no matter where you live in the world! Check out some of his work…
