Finding The Happy

Looking for joy in all the right places



Welcome to the Family, cutie-pie

Tony and I are fairly isolated from our families, seeing how his are up north in Brisbane, and mine are mostly in Singapore. So it’s been just wonderful having our peeps make the long trip to welcome Atticus to the fold.

Travelling with baby did shrink our socialising considerably – at least with this trip. And as you can imagine, I really didn’t feel like whipping out the camera and going all happy-snappy either. But I’m glad we got to sneak in a few photos with the family.
