{Dusk in Munduk // Bali}

At the beginning of the school holidays I thought 2 months seemed like an awfully long time to entertain Audrey, especially with so many of our friends leaving Bali and Danny being away for a huge chunk of the holidays for work… Im sad to say it actually went so fast but we had the most wonderful time filled with adventures to new places, endless laughter, sunshine, swimming and too much yummy food! The best part was we had family and friends visit so there was so little time for feeling lonely or bored.

My friend, Deb, visited us in Bali in 2013 and we visited her in Japan last October. Those visits were short and sweet but we had 3 whole weeks together this time and we are already dreaming of more time together exploring in the coming months! Watching the girls friendship blossom over those weeks, I couldn’t help but feel so lucky to have such sweet friends in our lives!

Here are a just few images taken of Audrey and Skyler one afternoon a couple of weeks ago on an adventure in Munduk. Two friends, chatting, exploring and dancing {they couldn’t resist twirling their new coco + ginger dresses}. I will never get tired of the rice fields here… They are incredibly beautiful!



This month we missed out on sharing our 10 on 10 posts {the beauty of a busy summer} but we decided t0 link to one another anyway because we LOVE our little group! That means its time to stop by Sara Garcia’s blog, see what she has been up to! Rowe x

{10 on 10 ~ Instagram Edition ~ june 2015}

well i am so terribly sorry to say i missed out on sharing photos the last 2 months with my 10 on 10 circle of friends. i really have no good excuse other than life got in the way a little… danny was home in australia working for a whopping 7 weeks and i was trying my hand at solo-parenting.

initially i thought how hard could it be. i’ve got this! boy was i wrong…

can i just say, getting dinner on the table every night when you are running straight from school to after school activities is freakin hard! we ate plain pasta with raw veggie sticks a few too many times and resorted to omelettes for dinner on more than a couple of occasions! danny and i normally share the school runs and take turns doing the after school stuff so i have to confess, i was struggling juggling audrey’s after school commitments with home life. its super hard when you are the one and only person.

single mumma’s out there… i salute you! you are truly incredible beings doing a kick ass job!!!

anyway… i didn’t want to miss another month so here it is. a post of my instagram photos because who has time to shoot, download, edit and blog photos when life is so hectic? certainly not me! the month of may, spent exploring bali. edited with afterlight, vsco, mextures and little moments app.

{10 on 10 ~ bali edition ~ march 2015}


on the weekend audrey had a friend stay over and we decided to go to the skatepark. we planned to get the girls lessons because audrey hasn’t skated before. then we decided there was no need. her friend had skated before and although danny hasn’t skated for a while, he did skate throughout his youth and i think he is pretty good, especially in a bowl so we figured he could surely teach them a thing or two!

they honestly had the best time… we were there for hours and i cant believe how good they got so quickly, riding down steep ramps and being courageous enough to ride with all the boys.

me on the other hand… i was totally freaking out! hovering near by, helicopter parenting… so embarrassing! sometimes i just had to cover my eyes because all i could think about is the girls falling on concrete… grazed knees or broken limbs! needless to say, we all got out of their alive, injury free! the girls are already talking about the next time and audrey is dreaming of the perfect skateboard!

so you know how the 10 on 10 works. i link to one of my dear and inspiring friends so you can stop by and see what they are up to, then keep following the links till you come back here. go take a peek at ginger unzueta and how she sees things.

thanks so much for stopping by! if you do a 10 on 10 project, be sure to leave a link in the comments below so i can stop by and take a peek. rowe x
