Our last stop in Europe was Geneva. We spent a day and a night there, before flying to Sydney. It was nice spending a few hours 
exploring the city on foot. I've flown in to Geneva airport so many times, but never seen the city itself. I really liked the old town.

Happy weekend everyone!

j & k tie the knot

we celebrated the wedding of our wonderful friends Jason and Katy on new years eve. it's one of the best weddings i've even had 
the privilege of attending. relaxed, fun and such a beautiful celebration of love.

Sydney turned it on for the special day, we cruised Sydney harbour on a lovely boat, drank sparkling, ate seafood and swam in the 
harbour. to top it all off, we attended the new years eve dinner in the botanical gardens, with the most spectacular view for the 
fireworks. we danced and laughed with old friends and new.

thank you Jason and Katy for inviting us to celebrate with you.

i've started a little project over on instagram.. i came to realise i had a growing collection of pics featuring shadows. i called them 
shadowgrams and if you search that hashtag, you'll see that i'm not the only one documenting shadows. i had some lovely comments 
about these shadowgrams and i became conscious of being out and about and documenting the interesting shadows, the play of light 
and shade that i witnessed. So i've created my own unique hashtag which is: melwatshadowgram. take a look if you're interested.

recently in b&w

if you follow me on instagram, you would have seen these pics already. apologies. i'm waiting on my films to be developed and i'll be a little delayed in picking them up, as we're having a holiday up the coast in Byron Bay.

birthdays by the lake

whilst in Annecy we spent a day by the lake celebrating three birthdays: a little boy turning 1, a little girl turning 6 and polo turning 
32. we had a beautiful day with friends and family, sharing delicious food, drinking lovely wine and champagne. i love these days by 
the lake. they are one of the reasons we hope to live in Annecy one day.

well the end of 2013 got away from me and i forgot to visit here and post some more photos. i wasn't the best blogger in 2013... 
i guess i had other things on my mind :)

i've still got some photos to share from our trip. i know it was a while a go now, but i'd still like to show you.

so 2014! i've got some plans, including:

- exercising more
- learning french
- taking a creative class
- taking more photos and blogging more
- getting back into cooking (polo does a lot of it - good husband) and trying new recipes

my maternity leave is coming to an end, i'll be working three days a week come february. so wish me luck in balancing life and trying 
to achieve these plans :)

happy 2014 to everyone, thanks for visiting my blog and your comments.
