{Home-made} Rocky Road Fudge recipe

I have been holding out on all of you: I am sorry.  While trying to find some (other) old photos, I came across these gems and realised I never posted this post… and reliving the memories, felt I really owe it you… So here is (my take on) Rocky Road Fudge.  You need: 1 tin…

{Joy Pics} Week 1

For a long time I have tried very hard to keep the different aspects of my life separate… I don’t know why, perhaps like the way I eat my food, I don’t like a messy plate (I can hear my mother laughing… so will probably have to do a blog explaining this bizarre behaviour at…

{Creative} home-sewn

So a few months ago I mentioned in a blog that God had challenged me to stop comparing myself to others and trying to fit into an image created by the world… I needed to start living Slowly Simply Softly.  Part of that new lifestyle included sewing my own clothes.  Say what?  I didn’t even…

(These shoes were) Made for dancing…

  Every Christmas my mom (and my dad, let’s not try fool anyone here) spend Sunday evenings watching BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.  I love it.  Over the years I have learnt the difference between the waltz and the Viennese waltz, which dances require hip action, lots of energy or all the grace and glide of…

{Life with Jesus} Seeing beyond the waves

I spent the summer holidays at my parents’ house in Kleinbaai.  With the amount of Great White sharks in the area and the lack of a sandy beach, its not really my idea of a prime swim spot… but I enjoy the walks along the coastline. One morning I was taking a walk and got…

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…
