A little trip back home

July 11, 2013 | Personal, Photography, Travel

As some of you may know, working from home can sometimes get a little lonely. I don’t mind it most of the time (I am an introvert after all) but when the hubby goes away for a few weeks, well… it’s pretty quiet around here.

So when this happened a couple of weeks ago, I decided (with a little hint-hint, nudge-nudge from some friends and family) to book a last minute flight back home to Australia for a few days. I was apprehensive about doing it so last minute, but it was so very worth it! Not only did I get to spend some relaxed time with family and friends, I got to pull out all my winter jackets, boots, and jeans again! There’s really no need for winter clothes here in Singapore :)

Here are just a few photos I took while I was home. For the most part the weather was beautiful, and apart from a couple of days when I got sick, it was a fantastic trip.

Home! Home!

Wasn’t the weather gorgeous? I love spending time outdoors when I’m home.. :)


  1. Those succulents are gorgeous! Sounds like you had a fantastic time at home :)

  2. These are gorgeous pictures, lady! So glad you could take the time to get away and head home!

  3. very, very beautiful! Australia is one place I would love to go, if I thought I could handle the plane trip! ugh!
    I know what you mean about it getting quiet when you work from home; I live in the country in western Oregon – very quiet. Big deal of the day is the mail coming! peace and blessings, Sarah

  4. Absolutely beautiful! I wouldn’t guess these photos were taken in Australia, which makes me love them more: it’s always amazing to learn new things about the world. Glad you got to visit and refresh!!

  5. Oh, looking at all your gorgeous photos makes me want to get away from the city!

    Thanks for the lovely comments ladies! I did have a great time back in Aus.. it’s always nice to be back and spend time at “home” again. :)
    It’s a shame the flight is so far for you Sarah! I haven’t been to the USA for the same reason haha. I hope I’ll get to head there one day :)

    Lovely location! I so enjoy reading your blog! We share a similar design aesthetic. I have your blog in my Reader and I save it for last because it’s like my sweet treat at the end of a meal. I save up your posts like a kid who squirrels away their candy treats. You truly inspire me. I don’t remember how I found you but I am so glad I did. You are in my favorite circle of blogs. I’m gushing… I know but this gal in Texas is happy to have found you!

    I too work from home quite often, so I know how you feel! But it’s fun to be able to do stuff like this. Australia looks amazing. And love your blog too!

  9. Ahhh, so beautiful! And such a civilized winter without frigid temps and ice underfoot. I could go for that. :)

    Hi Haley, yes I’m very lucky I can head home on such short notice, it’s so refreshing!

    Hehe Anne, it’s a beautiful winter when the sun is shining! There’s never any snow, but we did have the fire going ;)

  12. Mountains and lakes and sunshine! Such lovely photos. Which part of Australia is this? :)
