Spark, flicker, fire in the belly.

It has been a year since I was last here.

A whole summer has passed. Snow has fallen in flurries, and then melted away. Tears have been shed over nothing and everything. Laughs have been shared with many and no one. And on and on the world keeps spinning.

It is no mistake that I haven't posted anything here for a while. The spark was gone; I had no meaningful words left to write, and I didn't want to post here again until I did. So I stopped. I logged-out of the online chronicles and instead put my whole heart into the people that give me kisses every single day and night: my rockstar trio that keep me firmly anchored in my world, and the other beautiful people in my life that somehow piece me back together whenever I doubt myself.



But now, my cyberspace friends {dramatic pause... door opens with a flourish} I'm baaaack!

Well, not entirely actually. But I'm back to tell you something.

OK, two things.

Firstly - I never realised how many of you cared about what I was writing on this blog until I stopped. So thank you for asking when the next Latte Mum post is going to be or for telling me that you're missing my updates or for staying loyal to Latte Mum in one way or another despite me being completely dormant. Thank you for being interested + for taking the time to tell me that it matters, because it does matter so much to me too that I write; that I do this. I needed reminding.

Secondly - I wanted you to be the first to know about something new that I'm working on for 2016 (can you believe we're just about there?!). I'm busily planning and creating and transforming a little space into something pretty darn gorgeous and inspiring. I won't give away the details yet, other than it seems that while I've been still and quiet this past year, my little heart and soul have been busy remembering parts of me that I thought I'd lost a long time ago; passions + creative sparks + flickers + flutters in the tummy that tell you when you're onto something good. So I'm following that trail to see where it might take me, and what else I might uncover along the way.

I will be revealing all on Monday 4 January 2016, and I would really love to see you there - more details on location to come. Bring your post-xmas glow + New Years resolutions with you!

Until then, this is where you can find me... x
