One week far far away…

Today marks ONE week since my sister, Juliette & I arrived in New Zealand. It`s been a week of laughter & cuddles. It`s been an odd week. Something I hadn`t thought of happened. For the first time since becoming a mom, I get to experience being a mom to ONE. As a mom of three, it`s odd. From the day I became a mom, it was a mom of two. I think I might think back on this trip for years to come as the `only month I was ever a mom to one` (well, as in hands on mom to one… my other two are always on my mind!)

It`s been a busy week of not much, which is lovely. It`s been a week of skyping with my husband and children most mornings. Telling the same stories often. Recounting what we`ve done and seen. Most importantly, which birds we`ve seen. They love new zealand birds, as known through stories they`ve now been reading for years.

it`s been a LOVELY week. Juliette adjusted incredibly well… In 2 weeks and a bit we`ll be making our way back home… I think the most surreal part of being here is that I honestly never thought I`d have the opportunity to visit my sister in her home. I`m counting my blessings, especially my husband who made all of this possible…

with that, a few photos… taken minutes away from my sister`s home at the beach. Perhaps I can see why she feels the need to stay here…
