SUNDAY / 44

20131124-210044.jpgThe weekend was, as expected, busy and wonderful. Weekends home to Adelaide always are (busy and wonderful). It's usually a mess of  breakfasts and lattes and yummy lunches and afternoon teas and wine and cheese and long dinners and card games with my dad as we finish off the last of the red, and this one was no exception. My friend Sathya's wedding was an especially lovely part. She married her high school sweetheart and after years together and two lovely sons, it was just so nice to  be able to celebrate it. He adores her and she just radiated happiness - I mean, the two of them giggled the whole damn day, which says a lot about their relationship and love for one another. Also, the champagne. And the dancing. When you get a group of old friends together and put on a lot of wine and some seriously good tunes, things get pretty amazing.

Today was a slower day, brekky with some dear fiends before I flew out. They have a lovely old house they are making a home, having bought it back in June. I miss having them here in Sydney quite a bit, but it is so good to see them settled and growing their business and spinning new magic in my hometown. Kara is a woman of fine taste, and I fell in all kinds of love with this handmade thrift find she served our breakfast on. I've always been a bit in love with ceramics and have wanted to take a course for about ten years - this may just be the beauty that gets me over the line and enrolled in something…
