Mister and I enjoyed a beautiful weekend away in Opononi, Hokianga. A lovely three hour drive north of Auckland. My favourite photo of our trip, admiring the beauty of the beach at the Copthorne Hotel & Resort Hokianga.
We rented a holiday house with a wrap around deck and amazing view of the beach and sand dunes. A lovely house with retro decor, blue walls and an inviting atmosphere.
Delicious treats of the week
Elijah, my handsome nephew is an absolute delight. At only six weeks old, Elijah has developed quite a humorous personality. He makes my heart smile and he is such a joy to be around.
I enjoyed a stroll through the Auckland Botanic Gardens taking in the delight of spring (despite my hayfever). During my high school years I would visit this place and dwell within the lively scent of flowers and feed the ducks in the pond. One of my favourite places where I lose myself in the serenity of nature.
This week’s national news has highlighted the issue of child poverty in New Zealand. KidsCan is an organization in New Zealand supporting disadvantaged children. One in four children in NZ live in poverty, alarming but realistic. Child poverty is prevalent all over the world. There are many ways to lend a helping hand. The smallest gesture of giving can make a large difference. Donating clothing or contributing to the food bank at the Salvation Army is one of many ways to make a difference in your community. I’m an avid supporter of our local Salvation Army. How could you make a difference in your community regarding child poverty?
