In the country

Last weekend we took a drive to the country to visit a dear friend of mine.  We only get to visit once a year which makes it all the more special, and the drive is beautiful!  We spent a little time visiting nearby towns, trying out various bakery lunches (a must!), exploring antique shops (which I absolutely love), and indulging in lots of homemade cake and fudge (more salted caramel, please).  The signs of autumn were everywhere, much more so than in the city.  And as we drove past the long golden grasses and bushland, I couldn’t help but stop to take some photos.  M x

    Jane, I’d love to take photos for you again! Thank you!! xx

    We’ll have to go out for fudge together next time! It’s always better in the country. x

    Thanks Jane, and yes! We had her ears pierced for her birthday. I was happy to wait but she was determined, and she was so brave. She’s super proud of her new earrings! xo

    Thank you so much, Mish!! x
