Happy Saturday everyone!!
It is such a beautiful day in Johannesburg. We plan on spending some time outside today, I’m thinking maybe having a lovely picnic, we’ll see.
A few weeks ago I laid down on the grass in our garden, just looking up at the sky, it felt so incredible and peaceful. It still shocks me that something as simple as that brought me so much of clarity.
I finally understand why people are crazy over camping trips, I can’t wait to go on one with my family.
These smore cookies are going to be at our picnic today, this was a recipe I struggled with recently and I’m so glad it worked out – FINALLY!
These cookies have crispy edges, soft centre’s, toasted marshmellows and loads of chocolate! It is absolutely divine and one for the cookie jar!
Also these images are just my favourite thing over, Iove how comfortable I’m getting with my camera, shooting in manual mode gave me serious anxiety! But I’m glad I never gave up and trust me there were many times I wanted too!
Let me know what you think of these photos and what you enjoy doing to relax 😌 and keep sane of course 😉.
