Summer Lovin'

Life’s a little tricky right now. 
Oh let’s be honest when isn't it tricky?

Sometimes nothing is more satisfying than grabbing my camera and the little folk and heading outside to the orchard for a ramble in the evening light. Watching them interact like friends, fight like bitter enemies and laugh like conspirators all in the space of 5 minutes.

These are the simple pleasures that I grasp onto when life becomes hard, complicated and somewhat scary. I'm in my 30’s and I still hate having to make serious adult decisions. Lately I've been doing too much of that and getting lost inside my own head. I've had enough of making life complicated…wasn't that why we moved away from Auckland?

I can’t explain more here, and to be honest I've been through worse, but somehow it’s easy to forget that and be consumed with the NOW of everything isn't it?

In the meantime, these crazy, noisy and precious little people fill the joy that life sometimes tries to steal.

And chocolate helps too.
