Yes, that

: The joy that comes with the first bite into salty, crispy, pork crackle
: The simple joy of being around people that you love
: The excitement of trying out a new recipe and tasting something new & delicious
: The taste of juicy, warm tomatoes that taste like tomatoes
: The hopes and plans for futures being made and dreams maybe coming true
: The first sip of a minty, ice cold mojito
: The time alone, in the quiet, thinking and just being
: The long, hot days
: The hair, that’s turned curly from all the swimming
: The not rushing, no plans
: The warm cinnamon tea cake, fresh out of the oven with a steaming cup of tea
: The freedom that comes from the truth, finally

: Yes. That

  • Alli @ Ducks on the Dam

    You’ve done it again. LOVING your photos – the ones that you choose to share with us, the way that you have captured the whole feeling and essence of the moment in one easy snap. Not sure if you have taken just 10 or 110 to get this selection but I’m loving it. Love your words too but at the moment it’s the pics that are giving me pleasure :)

  • Christie – Childhood 101

    Could I fly you over to Perth so that you can teach my hubby (the roast cooker in our home) to make crackling like that??? He just cannot seem to make the crackling happen :)
