I adore Summer and the busyness of weddings but one thing that Winter brings that fills my heart with love is spending more weekends with my family and friends. We had booked in a special family weekend a long while ago at a friends house in the Blue Mountains. As last week grew colder and colder I had thoughts of how magical it would be if it snowed. I have only seen snow less than a handful of times in my life (even though I lived in Scotland for almost 2 years) so on Friday morning when we woke up to news the Mountains were covered in snow, but the roads were closed, we were excited but forlorn... We were so keen we packed the car anyway hoping for the best. After a few errands and calls we decided to take the chance and head off. As luck had it the road opened just as we began ascending! Everyone arrived safely and we had a beautiful weekend away. Huge Thanks goes to the family who own this amazing home and allow us to share in their weekends away. It is a beautiful (and magical) place with and without snow.
