Late Spring in the Garden

It’s the fourth of June, and it’s just about time for the tulips in my mum’s garden to say goodbye and move over for the summer flowers. I thinkĀ I caught their beauty just in time. These photos are completely unedited, not even cropped. This is exactly how they came out of my camera. That’s how gorgeous they are.

Dreaming of New Zealand

We recently returned from a five week journey through New Zealand and Australia. Australia had been on my husband’s bucket list for, well, ever. And while it was every bit as amazing as we dreamed it would be, the place that really captured our hearts was New Zealand. The scenery is impossibly beautiful, and the people are the friendliest we’ve ever met. We can’t wait to go back some day. Here are some pictures to remind us of the beautiful day we spent driving to Cape Reinga, one of the northernmost parts of New Zealand’s North Island.
