it's christmas time...

It's an emotional time, always, every year..

I feel so much pride in my beautifully growing boys..

relief that the year is coming to an end, holidays are almost upon us..

anxious about their upcoming year, new teachers & classmates..

sadness that all my babies are about to be school boys..

joy and excitement at the thought of spending time with family & friends..

a bit scared about what happens next for this stay at home mumma..

grateful, forever grateful for this life that I live by the sea with this incredible man that I love..

I wish you all a most wonderful, happy & safe Christmas time, and very much look forward to catching up with you all in the new year...



  1. This time of year is always one of reflection for me..of where I've been and where I am going. There are a lot of changes happening for us next year, exciting times ahead as I am sure they will be for you too.

    Merry Christmas Mel :)

  6. A gorgeous post Miss mel.
    Endings and beginnings are always a bit happy sad aren't they.
    I hope your summer and all the festivities are just wonderful xx

  7. I have been thinking the same thoughts today live for the now,with an eye on the future.

  8. I hope your Christmas is a relaxing one and that you get to have lots of fun over the summer. It's a weird feeling when your baby goes to school, I've been down that road this year. And let me warn you, the year just flew by!! But it's good too, life has to keep moving on. I remember that first day after school drop off, I came home and plonked on the couch, not sure what to do with myself! It took me a while to get used to the quiet, a few weeks at least! You'll be fine, just take it slowly and be good to yourself. Much love to you Mel and thanks for all your comments this year. And for allowing us into your world. See you in 2012 xo

  9. Your such a wonderful Mom......I'm as excited about Christmas as the kids are....I can't wait to see their faces when they open their presents!
