He gave me flowers…

The honest truth is that neither Rick nor I are very good at getting each other gifts. However, in the week leading up to our wedding anniversary, he asked me quite a few times whether there was anything I wanted. I honestly couldn’t think of anything (well, a gorgeous vintage typewriter wouldn’t go astray but I know how expensive a nice one can be), so in the end, I suggested flowers. To our shame, neither of us know what these are called – all we know is that they’re native to Australia. If anyone would like to help us out here, please do!

In other news, we are officially on holidays which means the five of us get to spend a heap of time together for two weeks, and I get to catch up on some scrapbooking in the daytime! Yay! This week, I finally finished Jamie’s 1st year journal which ended up being about 10 centimetres thick. I can’t wait to share it with you!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.

More flora here.

I think nothing compares to the gift of flowers. And these are gorgeous looking. Such fascinating colors too.
Congrats on finishing the journal and here’s wishing the Masons a delicious time together :)

That flower looks elegant! Looks like in the center there’s a precious stone or something. :P
