Here are some snaps from our annual road trip down to Melbourne. This time instead of doing it in one hideous overnight haul PB mapped out the coastal drive with planned rest and overnight stops, meaning we never had to drive more than three hours in one hit. Timing 90% of the driving with BB's sleeps also meant uninterrupted conversation for us – more than we've had all year!
We had a super Christmas I'm sure not dissimilar to everyone else's –family, food, beach, books and naps. One thing I really noticed from this trip was how much more space I had in my head to create being away from the computer and the abundance of so called inspiration. I felt more inspired surrounded by nature with one new craft book and a mind clear of too many images. For me, 2013 is the time to stop putting stuff in and start seeing what comes out.
(For a few months anyways, until the new baby arrives and it's back to the newborn haze!)
