Some Bunny Loves You : Easter Printable

Tomorrow is Easter Friday and a reminder to us of pure love. 

It is also the perfect time to take a minute to let your kids, family and friends know that you cherish and love them. 


Simply download our "some bunny loves you" free printable, trim along the crop lines, fold and write your special words inside. Pop into a C6 envelope or bitty bag and attach to a box of Easter Eggs or a chocolate bunny. You can even bake these scrumptious Hot Cross Buns and give one of our cards alongside a homemade treat. 


These cards are available in mint, pink, grey and purple.


A very big thank you to Andre and Maritsa from Blackframe Photography for once again working with us to capture all the photographs in this post and for editing them so beautifully. Please hop on over to their blog to see more of their fabulous photography.


Happy Family Time & Easter Egg Hunting,

We're Celebrating my folks 40th year Wedding Anniversary

It's the 15th of January today and also my parents 40th year of being married. WOW, FORTY YEARS!!! We're sending them a whole lot of love to congratulate them and a big thank you for being such amazing role models to my brothers, sister and I.

Here they are 40 years ago in the back seat of their going away car, I just love this pic.


Here are a few tips they have shared with us on how to have a long lasting marriage. 

1. Keep doing what you did when you first met.

2. Your partner should be your confidant and your best friend.

3. Never ever lose your manners.

4. It's still cool to hold hands after 40 years of marriage.

5. Laugh together.

6. Have an open and trusting relationship with each other and your children if you have any.

7. A relationship with God.
