Happy 4th Mr and Mrs


**PS This is our very ever first photos**

My Hassie!! Can you believe it's been 4 Years? I know I write about how much I love you every year but it's just cause I like REALLY love you! 

I like to reflect and look back how we have grown over the year! I don't know about you but this year I feel like we are more in sync with each other where we're both working toward the same goals! 

Thinking about when we first left for our Hassie Australia adventure we didn't have any idea what we wanted from the world, now it seems we are fully 'booked' with everything we want to do and see. 

We are taking and making the most of our life and world!! I can't imagine doing all this planning and enjoying these adventures with anyone else!! 

I love you to the moon and back!!

John Edwards

Do you have a memory of a to show your parents may have watched when you were young? My memory is of my mum watching 'Crossing Over'. It's a studio audience of a psychic medium who speaks to loved ones from the otherwise. It's not a sci-fi movie or show it's an actual thing and it's huge!!  

This year I was trying to expose myself to different events and make sure E and I get to enjoy shows we have always wanted to see. Stumbling a pon - John Edwards live show and quickly sending the link to mum, was just the thing to brighten up her day. She freaked out and (This is Way in Feb) she naturally got tickets straight away - ViP ones too.

The night soon came along, and the excitement of 'being read' is becoming real. At first I didn't want it to happen but after the first reading I got more and more exited and hoped it did! (It didn't) 
While sitting in the audience and seeing it write in front of me - really made me tear up! This world we live in is so big and crazy, how on earth can we say that this isn't true and can't happen!?? This year I noted and I guess opened my mind to the possibility of greater things - why not spiritually too. 

Being in a house hold where mum and dad believed there is a 'other side' I never really thought differently. Being older I can expand and mild my own thoughts and truly Think there is a bigger story we can't see and yet to understand. 

Mum thank you for making me go - even thought I was worry about being read!

Swimming with Dolphins

Have you even had the opportunity to swim with dolphins in the wild? Well if you would have asked me a week ago I would have only dreamt of that opportunity! Today I can say it happened! 

While we were away on our Anniversary weekend away, we got to enjoy the beautiful environment that Western Australia supplies and that only means - Beach day and swimming!! 

Lemme set the scene - Jo and myself were facing the beach while the boys where facing us and the open ocean. When all of sudden the boys start screaming like little girlis, because  they saw a fin popping out from the water - of course living in Australia our first thought was SHARK! Now poor Jo and I not knowing about the mysterious fin until they started yelling - freaked me out let alone realising about this fish behind us!! 

Long thought and after the boys realised its onto a group of dolphins we made them run to get our cameras!!!

It was amazing and beautiful to have the opportunity to swim with dolphins in their own environment! If only other people were a bit more respectful about personal space instead of storming towards them (yes I'm talking about you crazy lady who started am swimming toward them and then paddle boarding toward them - which only made them leave the bay!!) 

Until the next time!!

Weekend Away

Oh Jurien Bay how beautiful and peaceful you are!! It's just what the Doctor Ordered!! Your traffic less, tree rustling, bird tweeting and calm water world is what we needed!! 

It's what we wish we had more of but you know living in the CBD we often don't have quiet - so you were oh so welcomed! 

I want to look at these photos and think back at how your were good to our souls!

Unrealistic Expectations

Do you ever just scroll down on your Facebook feed or any kind of social media and see friends/colleagues your age buying a house, popping out a child after child and seeing the world. While your just sitting on your couch in a rented city apartment paying off bills and feeling like your not on the same boat you maybe should be?

Well if I am going to be honest: I do. I feel like, while looking at others and how they maybe popping out their second child, while living in their own house, looking like life is just perfect. 

I don't think I am the only one who do this because E and I regularly am reminded that since we are married it should be time to have a family. I mean as soon as I change my relationship status to married the ads on Facebook and google changed to "How to get pregnant quickly". WOW I literally just said I do and even the internet is against me!

Now 4 Years since the 'I Do' and no babies in the close future. I find being bombarded by those ads and constant reminders with others having babies or buying house brings you a positive outlook on life.

Working with the elderly you realise being 24 may feel like you old but realistically you really a baby in a the terms of your whole life. The pressure of the outside world shouldn't make life harder, it should encourage you to do more with the time you have. Life is short and being a nurse I know that but, why, when scrolling down Facebook it makes me feel like I am missing out?

While realising I compare my life to others in different stages in their life, I try and remind myself that "Chante'! intern to yourself look back at what you have done and where you have gone, what life still holds. Yes! I know you haven't seen as much of the world you "FEEL" you should have seen while having kinds and settle down all before your 24!! Say again "TWENTY FOUR".

Just a subtle remember its your life your living not a fairly tale of what you think life should be, YOU are you! Be YOU! Life YOUR Life.

Ark Baker

This was the first time 3 and I ever went to see a comedian and really it wasn't bad. I can only speak about my self but I've always been concern about them picking on you! 
I can take a joke and understand it's their act but really I don't want to be picked on by someone I don't know! So I made sure I picked tickets at the very far back where he couldn't see me. I know it's silly to think like that! 

The other thought I had was 'what if I don't get the jokes' everyone laughing around you and I'm like 'I don't get it'. I worked with a doctor in aged care and he once said to me an early sign of dementia is if you tell them a joke and they don't get it you know there is signs of Alzheimer's. Great I'm 24 and don't get jokes while everyone around me laughs! 

So much worry and in the end it was a lovely experience and would do it again! The crowed was great and the jokes/stories really funny!
