March in Perth

Ahhh March, I love you.

The weather is not too hot that you feel yourself burn as you go to check the letterbox, but warm enough to go to beach, and warm enough that the concrete still feels warm under your bare feet at night. The leaves turn red and orange, but there are still frangipani blooms on the trees. The birds are migrating in V shaped flocks, and if you listen really carefully you can hear them faintly honk honking at each other.

March for me means Sculptures by the Sea, an annual Art exhibition held on Cottesloe Beach - Giant sculptures which turn the beach into something out of a children's imagination. Wanna see exactly what I'm talking about ? - there's a virtual tour!!
The Virtual tour has been shot in the afternoon, and I love how you can see all the families having picnics along the grassy area, and really get an idea of how the sculptures catch the light so perfectly at that time of day.

Beautiful breeze, Sculptures by the sea, Gelati in hand, surrounded by friends - and all at once I know that I will always, always call Perth home.

Also in March is the Mandurah crabfest - I can't tell you how much I LOVE this festival! So many amazing gourmet foods, ridiculously talented artists, - like this girl who I actually met and melted - Emma Blyth - I love ALL of her paintings!

show rides, fairy floss, fireworks, water ski displays, all by the water, it's what life is all about for me:)

My husband and I went to both the crabfest and sculptures by the sea when we had first started going out as teenagers - I still get those teenage *please don't ever let this feeling go* butterflies every year we go back.

Wishing you a fantastic autumn, wherever you are in the world,

Love Lily

The long awaited wedding photos!

Soo I know, this has been a long time coming - if I'm truthful with you all, I got locked out of my account because I changed my password to something ridiculously hard and forgot it... Anyway, so now I'm back and will be posting every Wednesday from now on..

I got the wedding photos back from the amazing photographers Alan and Steve from Amac & Wise and I really wanted you to see them! It was such a beautiful day and I'm so grateful to have had two amazingly talented photographers capture so many precious little moments. Here's a few-I've tried to have the important ones..

(Can't believe I'm marrying the boy of my dreams)
