June 2017 Recap - What's New With You Link Up

Good morning everyone! Time for another link up with Gretch & me, all we ask is that you link back somewhere in your post. Thanks a bunch. I'll be doing another monthly recap... kind of.

What's New With You

Funnily enough, June has been my busiest month this year, but I don't have much to share today - I'll be doing full posts soon, once I get my brain back together. Jet lag is hitting me hard this time, even though I should be fine by now, my body refuses to sleep when it is supposed to. Oh, and I'm sick. Joy! I thought it was just a crappy throat and headache from an absolute miserable flight(s) home but it is sticking around.

Anyway. For the first 9 days in June, I didn't do anything really, except work, gym, sleep etc. Then we went to New Zealand (Auckland & Queenstown) and home to Australia (Sydney & Melbourne). NZ was the 'vacation' part of our trip, whereas home was just home. Lots of sitting around on the couch with my mum (she's doing well!) and then hanging with family in Melbourne. It was tough to leave, of course, and we're already planning our next trip.. even though this was supposed to be the last one, come on - how can it be?! I will always be planning my next trip home.

I figured I would share a few of my favourite photos today before I get around to doing the full posts.


Other than recovering from the trip, there's not much new with me. We will be starting on our kitchen renovation soon, very exciting!

If you'd like to link up with us, please do so below!



So, what's new with you?

  3. Ugh I always catch the worst colds on planes, despite sterilising anything I can get my hands on. I hope yours clears up soon, along with the jet lag/zombie status. Looking forward to reading more about your time here (esp NZ, we need to get over there when it warms up a bit) and I hope you do come back soon!

  22. i'm sorry to hear you're sick. we were in colorado last month visiting my mother's family, and the day after we got back, i woke up with no voice. stupid sinuses. it's like the body knows you're going back to a routine and is rebelling because of it.

    i LOVE that yall got to see hobbiton. that is definitely on my list of places i most want to go. thanks for posting the pictures. i'm both glad and jealous that you've been.

    good luck with that kitchen remodel. i can't wait to see the results.

  23. Gorgeous photos from your trip! Glad you got to get some real vacation time in NZ because I know how it is visiting home...it's called a vacation but never relaxing with all the family and friends catching up to do in a short amount of time. So happy to hear your mama is doing well!

  26. Jet lag stinks! I've always heard that it's worse when you travel east for some reason and I've never understood why. That's when it always affects me so whatever the reason, I believe it. So glad you got to spend time with your mom!

  33. This is a great venue. I was here for a party and there was so much food and it was all done so well! The decor and food both were amazing. Personally, I think the space is laid out really well and the size of the NYC venues keeps pulling great parties.
