Five Years Ago....

Five years ago Brad and I spent an eye opening, core shaking, learn a lot, breath taking year living in London. The day we arrived we knew only one family.... that is all... two adults and two children who I had not seen in over 7 years. We had each other, our passports, our bank account and a whole lot of desire to live a year just as us. Without realising, it was a test, not just on our relationship but also on ourselves. Could we survive a whole year on our own with no help from our much loved, friends and family back in Australia? That year, I remember spending a few sunny afternoons in Greenwich Park a short stroll from our council housing unit on the Thames simply, reading, chatting, drinking a few champagnes and simply watching the grass grow... oh how times have changed!!!

I saw this post tonight and it really threw me back to those simple moments.

When was the last time you sat back and simply watched the grass grow?
