3 Reasons Why I love This Week

They say good things come in threes... perhaps 'they' are right!:

1. Over the last 4-or-so months, my husband and I have battled sleep deprivation as our gorgeous but determined daughter pushed us to the brink of insanity by waking up once... twice... three times and more, EACH AND EVERY NIGHT. No breaks. No nights off. No reprieve. After fruitlessly trying every tactic and technique under the sun, I finally discovered the Australian Baby Whisperer Sheyne Rowley's Dream Baby Guide. The book is over 800 pages long and I am still working my way through it, but I have found the holistic approach so completely refreshing and after putting into practice a few of her recommended strategies we have had our first full nights of sleep in many months. I am so excited about finishing the rest of the book and am confident we have found the solution to this sleep-blip once and for all!!

2. A while ago I sent some before/ after courtyard pics into Real Living magazine. I received the January edition in the mail this week (I subscribe) and there it was, on page 17! And the best part is, I win a $500 food and wine hamper for my troubles! Yayee!

3. I won a blog award! Amanda from Homely One awarded me this award today -- I am so flattered, thanks so much! Check out her lovely blog here...

What loveliness have you encountered this week? Have a great weekend....


  1. That is so exciting that your lovely courtyard is in Real Living!! Will have to look out for it when I pick up my copy on Monday. Glad the 'Gorgeous Blogger Award' completed your week :) Enjoy your weekend Nicole!

  2. Lovelyness from this week? Well, I was given 3 bottles of wine and a wrapped box of chocolates from customers throughout this week!! Not very excited to anyone else I'm sure, but I am but a lowly dog washer to for these people to think of me and actually give me a gift is, to me, amazing!!!
