Well, it's been far too long since I've given an
update! This new year started off busy with holidays
but has definitely slowed down.  
I'm trying to enjoy my last month in New Zealand.
Which, for me, means drinking as much coffee
as possible. It's one of my favorite things about this place!

Since our husbands are working at a music festival
this weekend, Christen and I have been able to spend
some quality time together. 
Today, we tried THE most delicious iced coffee I've
ever tasted. It was made using a Fretta, which I may
just have to get for my own home. Has anyone ever tried
this form of cold brew? I recommend tasting it
if you come across some! 

Did I mention we have the pleasure of
hanging out with this kid all weekend?
We're pretty much guaranteed a weekend
of smiles :D

Our family had a wonderful Christmas and New Years :)
We packed up a teardrop trailer and towed it
up to a small beach town about 4 hours north of Auckland.
We spent the last week of 2012 at the beach, cooking meals
and spending time with a group of dear friends.
It was the perfect end to a wonderful year.

We'll be off on another holiday with my husband's family in a few days. 
I'm pretty much sold on a summer Christmas & New Years :)
