Day 27 & 28~ Thirty days of gratitude

A big family weekend these past few days so I didn't get to blog yesterday but its never hard to catch up with things to be grateful for....


waking up this morning to dolphins playing and this beautiful view from the home of some of our closest friends Graeme, Danielle, Aidan and Ave......


who celebrated the birthday of our gorgeous Santana Luz who turned 20 yesterday. She was sooooo excited to not be a teenager anymore! On the drive down to meet them last night Marco surprised us both by pulling into Milton Hospital, where she was born, and telling her how the moment she came into this world twenty years ago was the best of his life at that point.......

He has such a tender heart this man of mine and we are all so grateful to have him...

Happy fathers day mi amor!

I know you often feel overwhelmed by the dominant feminine energy in our household( 1 wife, 2 daughters, 2 female felines) but I want you to know that it is your love and guidance that has helped us all become the best we can be so I guess you have no choice but to embrace these three feisty, big hearted, strong women!

we love you muchissimo!!

and if you're wondering why Sienna is missing from these family celebrations thus far it is because she is a Senior Guide and had an important overnight camp at Taronga Zoo where guides from all over Australia got to experience sharing the night with a multitude of animals.

Unfortunately she and her friends didn't make it back in time to come to Ulladulla with us so, for the first time we allowed our sweet sixteen to stay home alone with 2 of her besties for company.

Both of our girls are one of a kind but Sienna and her friends take it that little bit further in the quirkiest of ways....


no wild parties for these teens when parents are away, just a little pole dancing fun in onesies!

Of course! What else?

Grateful for individual creative expression, family, daughters, friends, beaches, dolphins, laughter, cocktails, pizza, birthdays and dads..grateful to have two of these in my life, one who raised and loved me fiercely as his own and the other, just discovered a year ago from whom I get my DNA and many of my physical attributes..grateful to have two dads and two mums... and one amazing man and two incredible daughters...could go on and on but time to whip up some Fathers Day specialness for dinner. 

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend also ♥

lots of love Tracy xox

Happy Birthday to Santana but I have to say lucky Sienna! The 'Roar and Snore' at the Sydney zoo is just awesome. It was my surprise birthday present from my wonderful husband a few years ago. We had so many wonderful experiences, but one of the most memorable was watching the chimpanzees tumble out of their night enclosures and celebrate their morning freedom with joyful abandon!
