29.12.14 // THE REWARD AT THE FINISH LINE Phew! We made it!! Boy, oh boy, that Christmas season was bonkers. Amazing bonkers, but crazy all the same. The moment the last order was posted, we hit the road, destined for a week of unwinding and recharging with our little girls. The holiday we HAD to have to recalibrate our work/life balance! Desperate to start the holiday asap, we chose a beach house just 1 hour from home, down the Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia. A treehouse set amongst the vineyards, just a stones throw from spectacular beaches. Heaven, no? The change of scenery was all that was needed to start refuelling our energy reserves. Oh, that, and lots of indulgent food, wine, nanna naps, games of Uno, catching up on the latest mags and watching cheesy Christmas movies. It was the first time in ages that Ryan & I had actually stopped to watch an entire movie! Eventually, we headed outdoors to explore nature's playground. Such a remarkable coastline, yet still so uncrowded. You can even drive right onto the sand on some of the beaches down here. The girls were pretty excited to spot some furry friends grazing at dusk one night. Summer holidays… No rushing. No structure. Spontaneity. Bliss. So good for the soul!
