Is it just me or do the weeks between New Years Eve and Australia Day just fly by?
Our Australia Day plans since having children are usually quiet ones. In fact I think the past two years by fiance was working!
This year we will be hosting a quiet BBQ at home with potato salad, our slip & slide and Triple J’s Hottest 100 Countdown. Oh and let’s not forget the wine!
However this year I want to celebrate life a little more. Celebrate every little holiday a little more. Australia Day, Valentines Day and Easter are all in my sights to be celebrated and I’m so thankful to have Pinterest to feed my brain with craft, food and decoration ideas!
So while our day with be of the laid back kind, I’m looking forward to celebrating that exact fact… celebrate the life I have with my three beautiful boys (2 little ones + my big one) and how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful country, and especially at this point, a gorgeous new city!
Here’s my Australia Day essentials for a quiet BBQ at home…
