As things ramp up at work, I am finding more and more solace in my weekends. Friday night, I sadly didn’t leave the office until after 10pm (and that was after arriving at 6:45am!) so I was very happy to see the weekend being filled with many fabulous birthday celebrations!
On Saturday afternoon, (after spending the morning in the office) we celebrated with our friend Ben, who has just returned from a fabulous overseas trip which saw him jet set around Europe and America. Needless to say, his stories have certainly left us all a little bit jealous.
We spent the afternoon relaxing over a BBQ with some delicious salads and beautiful meat, while sipping on some birthday bubbles! Saturday afternoons don’t really get much better than that. Especially after working that morning!
Summer in Australia is perfect for outdoor dining, and I love that everyone always tries to take advantage of it while they can. One thing I really did want to do more of this summer was picnic, but I haven’t gotten around to it yet! Let’s hope there are still a few nice weekends left before the colder weather makes an appearance.
Sunday afternoon, we were off to the park for a 2nd birthday party for Hamish! He is the son of two very good friends of ours, so we couldn’t wait to eat some cake, sing happy birthday and give him his gifts.
Lauren did an amazing job making and styling the cake! I loved it so much, and it was VERY tasty. Hamish had a fabulous time running around with all of his playgroup friends (and a few of his ‘adult’ friends too!)
