365 Grateful – Days 351 to 354

It’s been a while since my last batch of grateful photo’s.  My photography studies have taken over, as the time in which I have to finish gets less and less each day!  Never fear though – I recognise things each day to be grateful for.  It has become […]

Clean Eating Chicken Salad

I put so much thought and planning towards what I cook for dinners each week.  I make sure we have seafood at least once a week.  I ensure we only have red meat once or twice a week.  I try to plan around two vegetarian meals per week.  […]

365 Grateful – Days 341 to 344

Hi there!  I’ve been head down, bum up, busily trying to get some photography assignments done!  Boy oh boy they are time-consuming!  I’ve been very slack with it over the lead up to Christmas / Christmas / New Year period and have lots of catching up to do.  […]
