I can't believe it's been a few weeks since Mother's Day and my last blog post. Where has the time gone? 

Hubby was in Cairns for 3 days for a work conference he organised (flights, accommodation and organising the conference). He sent us some beautiful photos while away, and purchased some handmade soap for me at a local market. Very thoughtful and appreciated. We plan on taking the kids to Cairns for a holiday, possibly next year. I look forward to creating more memories with our family

Above 3 photos were taken on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S2

Our eldest son Mr J turned 12 on Monday May 16. It doesn't seem that long ago we were holding our 6mth old for the first time. On Sunday May 22 he was ordained a Deacon and received the Priesthood. We're so proud of the young man he is becoming

There have been school events, craft morning, trying to keep up with everyday life and sickness in the family. Mr D's Birthday will be here before we know it; on June 1

Four days ago I saw an exquisite embroidery on Sarah Jane Studios instagram page. I had to buy the pattern as it spoke to my heart and is another reminder of how truly blessed hubby and I are to have 3 Korean angels

Myself, Hubby, Miss Y, Mr D and Mr J

Here's my version of 'blessed'. Our children's dark brown hair, my light brown hair and our children love snuggling up with a cuddling toy. How sweet is the bunny in Sarah Jane's embroidery! I loved stitching this beautiful design

I wound vintage fabric around the wooden hoop 
and hung the embroidery on an heirloom cupboard
from my great grandmother

Thank you Sarah Jane for creating such a sweet design. I love it!

Last week, Sarah Jane posted about her childhood best friend of 28 years who passed away from a sudden case of meningitis 12 days ago, two weeks shy of her 37th birthday. This week in Sarah Jane's shop, 100% of proceeds will go to a fund for Rebecca's kids. You can purchase from her shop at or you can click on this link to donate directly to the family fund. Sending my condolences to Rebecca's family and friends

Hug your children. Enjoy every precious moment you have with them. Remember how blessed our lives are to have each other. Families are forever!

Much love, Julia xx
