We have Rachel over from Our Town Brisbane + FREE Printable Holiday Calendar

Banner-OurTown-sunset-light2We are so excited to be hanging out with Rachel from Our Town Brisbane this month.

Brisbane is our home town as well, and there is always something going on. We just don’t always know about the somethings. That’s where Rachel’s blog comes in. It’s a fantastic way for anyone living in or visiting Brisbane to keep their finger on the pulse of this vibrant city. And coming into Christmas and school holidays, we thought it was the perfect time to collaborate on how to keep yourself, and your kids, entertained.  Read more

When I think about my childhood and adolescence,this is what is etched into my memory: 

  • Sitting at our dining room table and eating breakfast and dinner together, as a family, almost every day.

Creating Memories & Cherishing Moments – Our Photography Project

CHALLENGE - Image Credit Robyna MayWhen we started to chat about this month’s central theme – creating memories and cherishing moments – we started talking about the WHY behind our photos.

We laugh with each other as we move things around to “style” a lovely shot, but these images are fleeting. We aren’t likely to print them out and keep them in an album. They are never going to grace our walls or frames. So often we grab our phones with the intention of immediately sharing the pic and without the intention of keeping it for posterity.

So, we decided that we would commit to taking photos outside of the intention to share on social media. Images that caught our eye. New ways to use our cameras. Different kinds of moments.

And, in a somewhat ironic move, we are sharing them with you today.
