Relationship Status change …

The day had finally arrived! All the planning, meetings, discussions, arguing, tears (of joy and sadness), excitement, confusion, more excitement, decisions, choices, colours culminate in this one moment. This momentous occasion that had us all wrapped up, all the time for months… Let me just say though, it was all worth it. The moment her…

Reflections of a Romantic…

I have always believed in love … the mushy, curl your toes, feel good kind of love. The one you don’t believe is yours even when you’re smiling from the inside out. The one where your life is so beautifully complex yet so magically simple. The one where everything is said in love, done for…

Twenty mineteen

Firstly, I know it’s almost half way through the first month of the new year but Happy New year y’all. This being my first post of 2019 I feel like I owed it some thought and not just spew out words on the whim. This is a much harder way to write than my usual…

A Journey of the heart <3

Liberated Silence

In the moments when you are alone with yourself, in between the work, the family, the friends, the errands, the phone calls, the texts, the lists, the grocery shopping, the cooking, the cleaning, the organizing, the packing, the exhaustion, how often do you still look for something to do?

The Gloves are Off

Conflict is something I prefer to not deal with. I have been known to avoid conflict in many situations, I would either submit and be overpowered by the other person or I would choose to be the better person and forgive if I was wronged. In more recent times I have learnt to deal with…
