5 Blessings In My Life

Today is mine and Joel’s 1st year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe how quickly this year has gone! It feels like yesterday we were enjoying our special day with all our family and friends. I count my lucky stars every day for the life I’m living and here are 5 of my favourite wonderful blessings.

My Husband
Wow… I still can’t get used to that. ☺️ He drives me crazy. He’s absolutely bonkers. He’s messy and we have completely different styles but I can honestly say he’s my soulmate. I love him unconditionally and feel so blessed to have found ‘the one’.

My Health
I’m healthy and happy. I have eyes to see, ears to hear and legs to walk the Earth. If all were taken away, I’d still feel blessed to have pure imagination and my soul.

I have been to some truly amazing places around the world like America, Italy, Australia, Barbados, Spain, France and Mauritius. To experience different places and immerse yourself in their cultures is something I will continue to do and I feel blessed every day that I have the ability to fulfil this desire.

They’re your most important allies and I feel so blessed to have a strong willed, gorgeous and funny family. At every family get-together, I sometimes just like to sit and watch  every one talk so I can take in every moment with them. Some day the amount of people at the dinner table will change and you’ll wish you could have a past moment back again just to have one more time with them. Treasure every moment with your loved ones.

I love our house. It’s bricks, paint and furniture to most but to me… it’s home. It holds so much love right now and one day that love will grow so much stronger that we won’t be able to contain it. I’m so blessed to have my lovely little home.

5 Places I Would Love To Visit

The Hawaiian Islands
Hawaii’s magnificent landscapes and culture speaks for itself. My favourite TV show is Lost and I always envisioned I would visit Hawaii someday but to imagine myself on one of these islands seems to feel more like a dream and never a potential reality.

The beautiful cliff faces, waterfalls, rivers, sunsets… Yosemite has it all. I would give anything to walk amongst the trees that Ansel Adams used to sit under and capture his incredible photography. It seems like such a special place to me and one day I hope to visit.

New Zealand
I really love my landscapes (as you can probably tell by now) and New Zealand is top of my list for a trip one day. The photos I see of this country are breathtaking and I’d love to be able to explore the Lord of the Rings locations.

This place just seems other-worldly to me. It’s no wonder movies use Iceland to portray a apocalyptic world. It’s so haunting, mysterious and barren that people always ask me why I would want to go there. The answer is because there’s no other place like it on Earth.

Lake Como
A beautiful place in Italy that I am dying to visit someday! I mean just look at that view… it speaks for itself. Simply perfect.

What a completely beautiful world we live in. It was so nice to take this time out and look for gorgeous photos of places I would love to visit someday. All I see in the news is hatred and destruction but this life doesn’t have to be like that. The world is perfectly imperfect and it’s our job to protect it from ourselves.
