Scrapping: baby

It's been very exciting to get to scrap these pages... and I'm glad to do them now before bub's arrives and I have no time to tell the stories! There are 2 layouts here which I put together yesterday. 

The top layout is all about the journalling. I wanted to remember the story of the day- getting the pregnancy test in Paris and our surprised reaction when it was positive!

The bottom layout is strongly inspired by the Susan Weinroth page under mine. I have always loved it and wanted to scrap something just like it. Now is the time! :) Some ultrasound photos are kept inside the circles. So many of my favourite patterned papers are used on this page! 


I've been going through my laptop and doing a bit of a clean up. I found these and thought they were worth posting! Enjoy! :)








Our little family

25 weeks 4 days
Here we are on top of the hill, when the wind was not blowing so hard! I'm finding it a bit strange looking at this photo of myself here. My tummy is really clear!

Below are some snaps of Tobes and I.
I love him!

Our weekend

This is the view from where we stayed last Saturday and Sunday nights. Talk about stunning (and not bad for an iphone pic!). We stayed in a little cottage called Hut on the Hill. It is located in Heathcote, about 30mins from Bendigo in country Victoria. The 'hut' sits in the middle of a sheep paddock on the top of a hill with 360 degree views of the landscape. Kangaroos and sheep can be seen in the immediate and nearby area. There was PLENTY of wind on Saturday. When we came home from dinner it was challenging to get back into the house because of it- and Tobes had to move the car so that it wasn't parked underneath a gum tree! The skies were so clear though and the starts were stunning. If only it were warmer I would have happily watched them for hours.

We spent our time relaxing at the hut- reading, napping, sitting in front of the telle and the fire. We ventured out for delicious meals at Domaine Asmara and Flynns, and a yummy afternoon tea at Cellar and Store.
Toby took the opportunity to make the most of me as a designated driver to taste some wines. All were fantastic, so our wine fridge is now 7 bottles richer!

On Monday we celebrated our anniversary by driving home! :) We stopped off at the pink cliffs, enjoyed a lunch of steak and onion pie and we shared a snot block (that's a vanilla slice- delicious) in a park in Castlemaine, then hit the road for Melbourne.

Such a relaxing weekend and a lovely way to start our third year of marriage.

Pics of us (and my growing tummy) tomorrow!

2 years ago today we said I do. I'm glad that we did!

We've got some big changes coming up, but they're good ones.

I love you Tobes and I am delighted to be your wife!
