Wow, HAPPY 2015! How did we get here so fast already?? It really felt like we had just recovered and adjusted into our normal rhythms again since Melbourne and then suddenly we were off on another wild adventure. This time our journey saw us heading down the country to Wellington and the Kapiti Coast on Christmas Day. With our bellies still full from last nights dinner (we celebrate on Dec 24th in the evening) and our new presents barely unwrapped, we caught an early flight down for another two Christmas feasts! What followed was a whirlwind of catching up with family, meeting new members, sadly saying goodbye to another and meeting some who had been long lost. Although we had a great time, exhaustion finally got the better of us and that sense of homesickness was brewing in our bellies. So we hit the road and wound our way up through tiny country towns and paddocks full of lush corn. Being back was such a treat! Now we plan to spend the rest of summer lounging around home, painting the kitchen and spending every spare moment swimming or burying our feet in the sand.
