Leaving our week-long island home  – Great Barrier Island – at the beginning of January.  Such an awesome experience!

A montage of the flight into Great Barrier Island on a small 14 seat plane, the breathtaking view literally 15 metres from our cabin, and the cool gals I met – one of which is studying with me this year!

A little gift and card that I made for my dear friend and blog photographer – Rhesa!  Snapped a pic before packaging it up.  Vintage is the way people.

~Let me know if you want to see a few more of these posts over the next months.  In them I aim to let you know about some little things that I’ve been up to.  Part 2 will follow shortly.

People!  (…I hope there are still people reading this blog…)

Ok, so obviously it isn’t Christmas now, but I suddenly realized that I never put up some pics of our Christmas party onto the blog!  I think I could get hold of some more, but here are a few special photos of me and my friends celebrating the gift of Christmas – joy, love and the fulfilling of God’s plan to send his Son to bring us into an unending relationship with him.  I could go on, wow, I am so excited about that amazing love the Jesus has given us all!  So, we had a lovely day filled with opening presents (put that first cos it’s the most important), eating food, doing craft and eating jelly beans!!!  It was great and here are 3 pics of the lovely groups of peeps that joined me for this party.

My summer break is coming to an end (though I have been working for half of it) and I start Uni in less than 2 weeks!  Life is crazy and I’ve done some awesome things over the summer.  I thought I might try and dig up some photos and do a summer fun post!  …be prepared for bad quality photos… 😉

Ok, rest assured I haven’t disappeared forever – I thought it might be fun to do some Uni outfit posts soon!

P.S.  My hair has grown!  …and consequently, I look like a mountain lion in one of the pictures… you’ll know it when you see it.

Rhesa & Ess - photo 1

This is a fun little shoot that Rhesa, my photographer and I did one lazy Saturday afternoon.  We both dressed in an LBD and a tie-up blouse – a combination that I rather like at the moment 🙂  I bought this blouse very recently for a cheap price.  I really should curb my tendency towards blouses… some day.  It works tie-up, open or closed.  The versatility is what keeps me coming back to this staple piece of clothing.  A new piece here and there and a bit of mixing and matching with the old and new, does wonders for your wardrobe.

I’d like to thank Rhesa for doing pretty much all of my photography since that first photo shoot so long ago!  Your photography just keeps getting better and better, Rhesa – I’m loving it.  If you guys could go and check out her blog – http://mybuttonodyssey.wordpress.com/, I would be very grateful.  You can continue to follow her photography journey as well as her hobbies and everyday doings.  Thanks Rhesa!

Enjoy these photos and the beautiful NZ scenery that accompanies them.  We had a good old time doing this together, as you’ll soon see.

I’m thinking of doing a bloopers post from the various shoots that we’ve done over the last year or so – just so that you guys realize I’m just as human as you… gosh, the stupid things I’ve done 😉  Ok, I’ll just tell you one recent embarrassing story.  I was at my friends party last night and I was having a lovely time playing guitar with a friend, when one of the other guests came over with some cheesecake.  It looked good, very good.  She was offering it, and I suddenly decided that I really, really wanted it.  Jumping up from my seat, I ran over to claim my small piece of dessert.  Then, as I was on my way, I tripped, flew past her, snatching up the cheesecake in the process and proceeded to land upon the ground on my backside with a large, “thump!”  Classy, hey?  But I got it!  Honestly guys, I really wanted that piece of cheesecake and it was fully worth it!  Yep, one of the many things that keeps my life funny and interesting. 😉

God bless you all this coming week.  Isn’t life beautiful?

Esther
