Life: It’s what happens when you’re breathing

I love the title to this post, I want to write a post that somehow lives up to the title, but who knows, eh?

The past few weeks have been… surprising, humbling, busy and exciting. Isn’t that an incredibly heady mix?

Let’s start with the bee-yoo-tee-full! I was fortunate enough to attend a friend’s children’s birthday party. The details were gorgeous (and incredible and amazing!):

We also went to a friend’s wedding celebration – they’ve been celebrating their marriage for a while now 🙂

And the family donned skates. Totally fun. We’ve got skating lessons on the agenda tomorrow!!!

Now why have we been squeezing so much in?

Because One NEVER knows what is going to happen

I could tell you horror stories at the moment of what people around me are living – from re-growing tendons to surviving loss. Did anyone on any of the days where these things happened, wake up knowing that by the end of it, their life would be altered? No. No-one knew. On one hand it’s a chilling thought, on the other it’s a releasing thought. You cannot control everything, you don’t know what the future holds: if this is it, if this is as good as it gets, isn’t it a good idea to try and embrace as much as you can?

How I am currently embracing life:

  • Catching up with new and old friends
  • Eating cupcakes
  • Learning to Roller Skate
  • Participating in an online photography course
  • Hanging out on family adventures

So… do me a favor this weekend – embrace your life. Do something this weekend that you really, really, really want to do. For no other reason than, you have the opportunity.



(Oh! Goldfrapp didn’t let me take my camera in. Naughty goldfrapp. It was still a fun gig!)

  1. Hey you…

    so… as you’ve no doubt discovered, i’ve been snooping.

    you are an amazing woman, and i’m blessed to have you in my life. your blog has brought a little ray of sunshine into my afternoon.
