The Fourth annual Stillbirth Foundation Australia’s Little Feet Taking Big Steps Ball is on again this weekend in Sydney.
The night once again promises to be a wonderful evening and while I have had to take a tiny step back from planning the event this year I know how much time and effort goes into putting together a fundraiser.
We hope to raise some vital funds for research into Stillbirth and I am so proud to be involved in this wonderful foundation that is really making a difference to peoples lives.
I look forward to sharing more about the evening with you next week.  
Enjoy your weekend!!

What a lovely day we had today – the girls and I went to my mums so that Indiana could meet her Great Grandmother for the first time.
Here were are – all four generations of girls – how wonderful to have so many generations here.  My grandmother will be 90 in November, she has 4 children, 9 grandchildren, 22 great grandchildren and next month will welcome her first great great grandchild.

Progress on the house has been fantastic.
We now have the first coat of paint on the exterior walls and while I love the colours I have chosen I am starting to think that maybe I should have made the main part of the house the feature colour the white should be the feature wall!  I need to make a decision this week but there is something that is just not right! 

On the inside the painter has put up some samples of wall colours – I have decided to go with Dulus Lexicon for my walls as this is a really white white.  For the kitchen splash back and feature wall I am looking at Dulux Toffee Fingers. In the photo below it is the last colour on the right.

Timber floors are in and they look great.

And we finally have a staircase – no more ladder climbing which makes life so much easier.

The lovely Millie over at The Laurel Hedge has tagged me to play along
with My Heart – all I have to do it find a photo that best represents my heart!  It has taken me a few days to put it together mainly because I was trying to be a little creative but when it came down to it I have 5 photos that best show my heart and yes most of them are of those who are the closest to me.

My three beautiful girls – Sienna, Sofia and Indiana.  This photo was taken last weekend while they were all cuddling on the lounge – such a beautiful moment which made my heart smile – this is the moment I have been praying for for such a long time and it is so wonderful to know that my family is finally all here after what feels like an eternity of ups and downs in order to realise our dreams.  

My gorgeous and sexy husband – here we are on our wedding day in 2000 under the Sydney Harbour Bridge with those wonderful Olympics Rings shining brightly – a magical day followed by 9 magical years.

My wonderful dad who taught me so much about the importance of treating people well and giving back – sadly my dad is no longer with us as he lost his battle with cancer 6 years ago at the age of 58 – he was such a special person.  He even taught me how to build a house which is coming in ever so handy now that we are in the middle of our current project!

My Mum – being a mum myself now makes me appreciate the hard work that goes into raising a family – I think I have turned out ok and that really comes down to great parents who were always there when I needed them.

Finally the colour PINK – I love everything about the colour Pink (thank heavens I have lots of girls so my obsession can continue).  I think Pink sums up my personality – bright, happy, optimistic and lots of fun!
What does your heart look like ….
