Okay, okay… I’ve been fairly lax on the posting-my-best-photos-monthly front. Why? Because, busy.
Busy with work, with family, with travel & adventuring… basically, sneaky ‘ol Life got in the way of being bloggerific. And yeah, the ‘glorification of busy’ is a thing… so I need to stop using busy-ness as an excuse for not doing more of what I love. 🙂
That said, June was an amazing month in my world. And, I can’t wait to share some of our adventures with you! Work was fulfilling, family were/are happily settled, and I was blessed to travel to two beautiful, sunny, summery climes to escape New Zealand winter for two of the four weeks of the month. Speeding up, slowing down… enjoying a change of pace most days.
Below are some of my fave images and memories from Queensland, Australia (if you ever have the chance to visit the Capricorn Coast & Great Keppel Island – do it!), and from home – ten sun-drenched days soaking up my people and culture in California.
Shades of turquoise and gold play havoc with my happiness in these images. And, smiling faces remain happy for all times.
Enjoy, Team. As always, if you’re keen to use my images, please reach out and ask.
Surf spotting, Huntington Beach style. This is, by far, my Happiest Place on Earth. Waves crashing, thrashing and gently finishing their journeys in soft sea foam blankets at the sandy shoreline.
Venice Beach, when you’re there… look up. Always look up. Blue on blue on blue…
No work. No shoes. No worries. And… no gravity? As long as the sun is shining, life’s shining too.
Skateboard serenity at Venice Beach. These cool cats are easy to watch for hours on end.
Absolutely blissing out.
I attended VidCon in Anaheim – it was a pleasure to meet so many people from different places, backgrounds, and dreamstyles. I enjoyed geeking out & spending time with each person who spent their time chatting to & laughing along with this tourist at home. Above is Hannah Hart, YouTuber/Author/TV powerhouse & all-around fabulous human. Let’s be honest – being a Momma & running the rat race means I didn’t have a clue about who most of the ‘stars’ were, but it was a fascinating experience & I’m already looking forward to the next VidCon!
This big geek! Nerding out before the VidCon extravaganza that was.
The Rainbow Hut on Great Keppel Island in Queensland, Australia. It felt like we stepped back in time to a place dripping in multi-colored, sun-drenched amazingness. Cannot wait to return!
This has to be THE ROOM with THE VIEW. Great Keppel Island Hideaways, I could’ve stayed on here for ages & ages… heavenly, mystical, & OTT on the natural beauty scale.
Toes in the water, salty jeans, and a smile permanently painted on. Talk about one heckuva arrivals & departures lounge.
Yeppoon sunrise. Heaven. Heaven. Heaven. #TakeMeBack
