Savannah is walking
She is so darn cute too. She walks around with her hands high in the air. I think she thinks this is how its done because we have been holding her hands in support for the last few months while she gained the confidence she needed to let go.
It’s amazing to see the difference between my two girls. Savannah has worked her way up to walking for several weeks now, each day bravely taking one more step on her own until yesterday when she just let go and went. Kalyra, however, was crawling and then one day stood up from the floor, wobbled a bit, took a couple of tentative steps, grinned at her success and then started running.
Giving away $2,000
I’m so in love with my JOB. I get to do really cool things like choose the winner of a photo contest ran by Cover-More insurance and give them a $2,000 prize!! I love helping people travel more.
We met Dan on Friday night to give him his cheque at the Cover-More office and then he and a couple of our travel insurance friends went for drinks at the very cool Treetops bar in North Sydney.
Of course we spoke a lot about travel and I loved hearing about Dan’s recent travels and the story behind his winning shot. We thought it really captured the essence of travel, which was the theme to the contest.
Good Charlotte Concert
Craig and I went on our monthly date to the Good Charlotte concert at Luna Park on Friday night. Joel Madden was as crazy as eve and the concert was rocking.
I loved hearing Benji sing two acoustic songs on his own and I am now tracking down what songs they actually were. The views from the Deck Bar in Luna Park are extraordinary. It is worth a visit just for this.
Dean Smith photography
I cam across Dean’s photography on the Australia fanpage and followed him over to his fanpage where I discovered this amazing video. It will take 15 minutes of your life to watch it but you can see the magic that can be created when you follow your heart centre. So inspiring

2 million Pinterest fans
Life is such a trip! One day you’re working your butt off not really knowing what you’re doing and if it’s working and then the next you turn around and you have 2 million Pinterest followers.
We have no idea how it happened, but we are totally embracing it with such gratitude. I think a lot of people in this world with some travel bucket lists! Come getting inspired.
