Things I'm Loving

Shorter hair!
They say a change is as good as good as a holiday...and boy do I need a holiday,  well a haircut will do for now, so chop chop...and here's the new me, well, same old me, just with less hair.  I wish I'd done this sooner, it feels great and is so much less maintenance, I thought I'd feel older with shorter hair, but I actually feel younger and more hip (in my own lunchbox anyway).

Reaping the benefits of our veggie patch. 
It's so great to be able to show the kids where real food comes from.
To see them picking vegetables out of the ground in their own backyard just makes me smile. Who needs dinner plates! And no pesticides here either! 

The back steps hubby finally finished (he's so handy), meaning the kids can actually go down to the bottom yard and have fun running around.  Also doubling as nifty seating, such a nice place to sit with a cuppa in the afternoon!

love your hair! doesn't make you look older at all, very hip indeed.

I decided a couple of years back that I just couldn't maintain long hair so also had the chop.
it does feel lighter & less trouble but I do miss long hair too.

those steps are amazing, well done hubby.

gorgeous family Sam ♥

You are rocking those new locks Sam..your new look is great! I would love to go short but my hair is far too curly.

Hopefully this summer we too will be eating from our garden.

Love the hair...I am a huge fan of short...mine is as short as you can get...I think it does make me look younger too. Good for you being brave and doing it.
