chasing sanctuary

Bulli Lookout, Maddens point - Coast of Wollongong (1.5hr south of Sydney)

Jasmine jelly served with kiwi fruit and icecream; pot of French Rose tea : Nan Tien Temple
romantic breakfast dessert: Apple Brioche, Strawberry fields cake, chocolate mousse dome: Happy Hello Cafe, Strathfield
Romantic lunch date: Tandoori chicken pizza, Devils delight pancakes, Strawberry patch pancakes - Pancakes on the rocks. 

After the hustle and bustle of the surprise party, my love and I decided to go an a day trip out of the city, to visit Nan Tien Temple down in Wollongong and have a picnic down at Kiama. Weather wasn't on our side so, instead of feasting over sushi, pasta and fruit on a picnic rug under the warmth of the sun, we huddled in the back of the car munching away whilst the gusty wind and rain shook our little car parked nearby the Kiama Blowhole. Despite the weather, it was definitely a lovely day spent chasing sanctuary before returning to busy city life. A second romantic date spent was with dessert for breakfast and lunch, however it didn't prove too happy in our bellies :P

surprise surprise!

For the past 2 months, I have been sly and down right cheeky in planning my love's surprise birthday. All the hard work, sneaking around came into fruition last weekend and thankfully the sun decided to come and play after a week worth of rain. It was a theme costume party - heroes vs. villains and we threw a good old BBQ to celebrate into the hours of the night. Although the surprise was a tad early, Happy Birthday to my love. :)
