Melbourne Arcade


The Man and I snuck away to Melbourne for the weekend to go to Derby Day (horse racing carnival) with friends. It was a quick trip but a lot of fun. I never get sick of Melbourne, especially shopping in its gorgeous arcades.

Believe it or not, I didn’t take any photos apart from the above. I don’t know whether it was the fact that we weren’t travelling alone, or that I’ve been there many times before or that I just wanted to be in the moment, but I lugged around my DSLR and two lenses for nothing! I don’t even have a decent shot of my race day outfit.

In more exciting news, we have just booked tickets for next April to Hawaii! My brother and his wife and their new baby (yes, I’m an auntie as of a few weeks ago!) live in San Francisco and since we already visited them there last Christmas we thought we’d see if they wanted to meet somewhere in the middle.

The rest of the family will be coming too so it will be a bit of a birthday celebration for the Man and I who turn 30 in May… although to be honest I’m much more excited about meeting a certain little person.

Have a great week, you guys!
