“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.”
— Mitsugi Saotome
i've known fleur for nearly thirty years. we met in skool, and shared our teenage years together. now our kids are teens. this summer, famille fleur ventured to NZ and our two families spent new year's week sleeping marae-styles at our place. even though we see each other only once a year or two, our kiddos have an instant connection, which is pretty amazing, and makes me so happy. these few escapades were captured on fleur's daughter's vintage camera.
the holly holidays

summer hols so far -

but we all had a brilliant connection with the cuzzies.
katie has a new camera. it's only a canon point-and-shoot, but katie thinks it beats random pxts. so she spent five mins pointing and shooting.
oooh, lookit. something shiny over there.
i think that my mousey has the most exquisite hair colour in the entire universe.
beautiful raych pulled all sorts of funny faces and then she got the giggles.
this is my view of the world most mornings.
