Reason to celebrate...

It was a quiet week-end. Mellow. I travelled to Point Lonsdale Saturday morning and I enjoyed the company of my parents until late Sunday.

Sunday night I watched in awe as my friend Amy sang in her first solo performance, with family and friends there to cheer her on. I felt lucky to be part of the group of people she wanted to share this with - and she was amazing. She looked so calm and relaxed on stage and sang beautifully - a natural.

And on top of these simple joys, I quietly celebrated the passing of the winter solstice. The shortest day of the year is now behind us, and although we are only in the early days of winter, I feel like we have turned the corner and we are on the return journey to Summer.

It's a good reason to Celebrate!

Yay to the solstice, bring on Summer! Or at least Spring...just something a little warmer! And well done to your friend, it's nice to share achievements together!

Thank you for your lovely comments. But it's me that should be thanking you for your incredible support and understanding! I loved that you made the effort to be there for me, it was a special night.
