Keep cool

All Images - Pinterest

Summer is here (well not quite) and I am certainly feeling the heat!   Looking at these pictures makes me want to dive and laze around in cool water.

I am starting to feel a little relaxed as the boys have finished their exams and school for the year.  My husband came up with a lovely idea on Saturday night, the three of them are going to go on a surfing trip for a week to Victoria.  I love the idea of them bonding and having boy (men) time together.

We are off to Moreton Island for Christmas with my sister and her family.  I can't wait to spend time with them and to swim in the beautiful clear waters of Moreton.

The lovely Julie-Ann from Decorating Forum has asked me to feature my blog on their forum this week.  You can read it and other beautiful blogs from here.

Enjoy today!


  1. That lovely bed looks absolutely perfect - I can't think of anything better than lying there with a book and some wine on a summer night!

  2. Me too Mimi, I started my official 'it's hot' whinge yesterday. That's a great idea for the men in your family and they'll have a wonderful time. Moreton sounds delish for Christmas.

  3. Yes it's super hot today! We're spending a few days at Moreton too! I love it there.

  4. We are so excited to be featuring you on the Decorating Forum this week Mimi:). Your holiday plans sound wonderful. There is something very special about a family beach holiday - memorable:)

  5. OMG, i just bought 2 more kaftans today (Country Road sale rack, yay) & an wait to wear them in your fair state this Summer, love Posie

  6. It's hopefully going to be hot here tomorrow (you never know down this neck-of-the-woods) and would love to be able to go to that first beach/sand shot.

    Love the fact your 'boys' get to go surfing and then you get to veg at home. Woohooo!!!

  7. Oh yes I could enjoy all that loveiness in your photos. What a wonderful idea for hubby and the boys I agree I think it really helps them. We are off to Moreton in the new year too can't wait. Have a lovely day my friend.

  8. Hi Miss Mimi

    Have a wonderful day,

  13. Hey, very nice site. I came across this on Google, and I am stoked that I did. I will definitely be coming back here more often. Wish I could add to the conversation and bring a bit more to the table, but am just taking in as much info as I can at the moment. Thanks for sharing.
