Gratitude and Happiness: parties, beach trips and clothes

Hanging out at the beach with my girls

I loved our first summer day at the beach. I had so much fun with my girls and loved seeing them play in the sand and interact with each other.

Song of the week: Hall of fame The Script

I’m loving this song by The Script. Makes you want to step on out and make your life count!

Carnival Spirit Sail Away Launch party

We were so lucky to have been invited for this very special launch party of the Carnival Spirit now having its new home in Australia. We absolutely love this ship. There is so much fun to be had on it and it was so truly magical to be sailing on Sydney Harbour. It has to be the most beautiful city in the world.

The party was enormous fun. Craig and I did not have the girls with us so we soaked up the sun on Serenity deck during the day with a couple of cocktails and the inspiring $100 Start Up book by Chris Guillebeau. We then partied to the wee hours with our friends at Ogilvy PR. Carnival is so passionate and committed to providing memorable cruising experiences to Australians, I loved being part of the family for the evening.

Drinks with friends

I don’t know how I did it, but I backed up after our wild Carnival party evening to have birthday drinks with one of my best friends. It was great to spend time with my oldest friends again and laugh at our memories of crazy times spent together.

Craig losing his manhood

Of course I have to be really grateful to Craig this week for taking one for the team. He hasn’t nearly evened the score yet though, as I have done the pregnancy thing 2.3 times and childbirth twice. Nevertheless he sacrificed a small part of his manhood by getting the snip. He was slightly uncomfortable this week but it’s all for a great cause!

Pumpkin Patch

Seriously loving the clothes I have gotten for the girls at Pumpkin Patch lately. Their outfits are just divine and look gorgeous on the girls.
