Walk in the cold!

One thing about winter is it's so nice to be rugged up if you are in a
stroller with not a care in the world! Poor little guy is wearing 3
layers plus woolen slippers and 3 blankets plus the beanie.

Growing up

An amazing yet scary thought crossed my mind his day ry
is going to move out of home and get married and not be my baby
Natural evolution and growth, so fantastic to see it in action.

Whilst that day is still years away, having a baby makes you see just
how fast time flies. Falling victim to the overpowering thoughts in
our head, we rarely focus on the now and just savour the moment.

Today ry was in the jumper being super cute and kuni and I were both
home to enjoy the moment as it happened, soaking up all the excitement
Ryder was projecting and watching him for ages just learning,
developing and loving life for what it was giving him at that exact
point in time.

Overthinkin gets you nowhere. Savour what you have in front of your
face right now and enjoy your life as it unfolds.

Snow in Tokyo

A busy week flying between Adelaide, Sydney, Gold Coast and then
finally Japan has left Ry and I totally buggered and almost looking
forward to a month of house-bound living! But never did we expect to
fly into a Tokyo snowstorm!!!!
There were even giant snowflakes pelting down late last night here on
the east coast in Isumi, Chiba!!!

Right back into the full swing of things, Kuni and I shot with Sho and
Jon for the new Oshmans spring wetsuit catalog today at our home studio.

Ry has been snugged up in fleece and bath time is our favourite part
of the day!

Is it bad to say I'm looking forward to heading back to oz next
month....always missing the pups and of course kuni, but snow on he
coast is much too much. A trip to pow pow land a must me thinks....
