In 2018, I’m making it my mission to blog more. Throughout the last couple of years I’ve slowly and gradually decreased my blogging. Looking over my Blog Book (an actual, physical book I made) from 2015 recently I realised what an amazing way to capture and store memories this is, and having the ability to capture it all and turn it into a physical book makes it even sweeter. I have a backlog of posts I am yet to upload, but while we are enjoying Summer I may as well start here. When we were recently in Noosa, mid-north Queensland and being there we were spoiled for incredible scenery. I shot quite a lot, particularly because we were away with family and I wanted to preserve some memories for them and the bond between our extended family members. One morning we snuck out, reasonably early (ish) off to the beach for a swim, just the four of us. There were a few surfers out, and the occasional dog enjoying an early morning walk, but otherwise it was incredible peaceful. Since New South Wales is markedly cooler it was our first taste of the warmer weather and a swimmable ocean so naturally the kids were extremely excited.
