I’m organizing a 5th birthday party for Bunny right now. It’s going to have 40 people or so and a jumping castle and we’re taking over my father’s property, which has the room to host large gatherings. I had my wedding reception there and that was loads of fun, so hopefully this party will be […]


With Easter almost here, my mom’s birhday this weekend and my son’s 5th birthday on the horizon, my life is full of love, chocolate, gift buying and party organizing.

But this year I don’t really feel the need. I’m not sure why. In fact, […]

  Hi guys, I know my posting is slow at the moment. I’ve been in birthday celebrations for a few days now, hanging out with friends and family, getting lots of great gifts, traveling into the city and having a few drinks and some laughs. This photo of Bunny was taken with an Aboriginal dancer […]


When you ask people this question, you expect to hear cities like Paris, New York, London, even Sydney. What you probably don’t expect to hear is one of my top 3 cities – Mexico City. I’d like to say Mexico City has a bad rap for its pollution and crime, but that wouldn’t be true. […]
