Taking Stock: The Autumn Edition

April has got to be one of my favourite months, probably because it’s my birthday month! This past weekend was titled “The Weekend of E” and involved too much cake, lots of fun cocktails and time with my favourite people. I celebrated turning 27 from Friday morning tea time at work all the way through till yesterday evening. And my old body and fuzzy brain is still paying for it. I’m so grateful for all of my gorgeous family and friends for making the weekend so special. You realise how important your gang is when it comes to special occasions… the people who are around to celebrate, who think of you on your special day and send a sweet message or pick up the phone for a chat, the ones who spend time planning cute surprises and fun adventures. I’m a very lucky girl. I thought I’d share a few happy snaps from my birthday weekend… What’s a birthday without an impromptu photo shoot with friends, cocktails at breakfast time, lounge room dance parties, three different cakes and an entire fish (teeth and all) to dine on?

Even though I love April I’m also a little bit freaked out that we’re already a quarter of the way through the year! Time for a regular stock take. Here is what I’ve been up to as of late.
