2014

Miss Moss // 2014

happy new year! we are still on holiday at the seaside where my family has been spending summers for the past decade. soon we will be road tripping up to the Transkei to spend time with Anton’s family, and we will revisit the spot where we got engaged exactly a year ago. 2013 was such an amazing year for us, so many milestones were met and so many great experiences were thrown our way. we can only hope for a fraction of the same goodness for 2014, so here’s to that! here are some pics of our holiday so far. hope you are having an equally great start to the year.

Bits of my (long) weekend

one of the best things about this past long, long glorious amazing easter weekend was that i “forced” myself to take my camera around with me. truth is, i’m a lazy photographer. i’m bad at documenting things – something i really should be doing because my memory fails me on an almost daily basis.

freedom day

it’s freedom day in south africa today, which also meant a very long and freeing weekend for whoever took off monday as i did. i filled my days & nights with a sleeping late, watching mad men & 30 rock, drinking tea and red wine and gin & dry lemon with friends, napping, eating eggs + avo on rye every breakfast, celebrating a birthday, beach walking etc… lit the first fire of the season – the days are getting shorter, colder and my feet are actually requiring socks in the evenings.

i didn’t take a lot of photos this holiday because i was either eating, reading, drinking, eating, lying in the sun, snoozing, eating, drinking, walking on the beach, riding my bike, eating, napping etc etc. you know? but i did wander onto the beach one evening before sunset to take these shots. the sky really was all pink & blue! maaagical.

i want to go to there

holy moly, it’s only 18 odd days and then my SUMMER HOLIDAY starts. today i’m reflecting on summer holidays of old, 99.9% of the time spent by the sea (where else?). our family haunts were:

hahaha. taken in betty’s bay – he was waiting for his person, who was surfing. note: don’t watch marley & me. not only is it an entirely average / shit movie, it makes you CRY because the dog dies (spoiler), and if you’ve ever had a dog – you’ll understand.
