Goodbye & Hello

Today marks one month since I had to say goodbye to Bruno  and it feels significant that I blog this milestone.  Do I still feel his absence? Definitely.  Do the tears still surprise me? Yeah.  But I’ve also seen such a poignant shift that’s taken place in this past month and Holy Spirit has been…

{Blog for Bruno} Goodbye

My heart broke today. I had to say goodbye to my dog.  It’s just a dog, right? Anyone who has ever given their hearts completely and utterly to one, knows it never just a dog.  Yes, I have seen countless viral posts about people doing elaborate send offs for their sick pets.  A part of…

{Bruno Blog Take-over} Beach Day

So apparently, Bruno’s last post was so successful, that he has insisted we do another one… and once again, while he snores on the couch, I have been given the job of deciphering the grunts and snorts and put my fingers to work… So’s yestersday my mommy took me to go visits Aunty Dr Vet…

{Adventures} Kruger Holiday

I’ve mentioned before that one of my all time Happy Places is my parent’s holiday home in the Kruger area.  I love the sense of Timelessness and Space; its easy to lose track of reality and simply Breathe.  For the first time in not quite 10 years, I got to share this experience with my…

Bruno’s Blog Takeover: Camping weekend

Super exhausted after his weekend of much fun-ness, Bruno has asked me to type this blog on his behalf – something to do with his paws not reaching all the keys… so while he snoozes under his blanket, I will do my best to decipher his story between snores… “So’s I was told we was…

Unicorn #2 – My first production

Its already June and I am not entirely sure where the first half of the year disappeared to… maybe it had to do with my working 12 hour days for the past couple of months, but given half the chance, I would do it all over again tomorrow… I have never been prouder of anything…

{Life with Jesus} Unicorn #1 – My Own Home

So I started this year hunting unicorns in Kruger (you can read about it here:  https://wordpress.com/stats/day/waitinginfaith.wordpress.com ) and came back to Cape Town trusting for more Unicorns and Sparkles; those answers to prayers that seemed almost impossible.  I wanted 2017 to be defined by extraordinary moments with God – I wanted Adventure beyond anything I had…

{Girly Education} Facial for Free (well sort of…)

I got a spa voucher for my birthday (last July) and figured this week was a good one to use it. I usually hate going to spas for anything but a back massage: I dread the feeling of scrutiny and (hopefully imagined) sense of judgement and disapproval from the therapist. Clearly my girly insecurities come…

Boxes and Bubblewrap

My latest adventure: moving into my first Own Place. Excited is an understatement. But, before I can open the front door and walk on in, there is the little business of packing up and moving my life from one address to the next… a week of boxes and bubblewrap later, I have what feels like…

Finding Unicorns in Kruger

I began the year with a week in the Kruger National Park.  Alone.  Yip, I went on holiday all by myself… it was a total first and I loved it.  Here’s why… I finished 2016 exhausted; it had been a long, challenging year and I had spent a large part of it running hard to…

{Girly Education} Going Bananas for Homemade Spa Treatments p

I decided to spend the first week of 2017 in the bush, at my parents’ holiday house in the Sabi/Kruger area. Silence and space. Bliss. Having time on my hands, I decided to try out some homemade spa treatments I had seen on Pinterest… I mean, why not?  And having bought an entire box of…

Stepping out of the Boat

“The righteous will live by faith” – Romans 1:17 I read this verse the other day and something in it made me stop for a moment and ponder the idea: what does it mean to live by faith?  In Christian circles, we throw this term around like confetti, yet, the question remains: what does it…
