Sydney Love…

Hello there. I’m sharing more pics of Sydney today. My experiences there were completely amazing and I can’t even express the joy and gratitude I felt. Pictures do a better job than I can with words…

coming home.

It was bittersweet to leave the place where I spent most of my childhood days but coming home to my family was wonderful. I got to see my old friends and their new lives. I got to meet their children and visit their homes. We shared many laughs about the old days but the best part was seeing how they have all grown into amazing, beautiful and successful women. I want to thank them from the bottom of my heart for dropping everything for my visit, showing me a fabulous time and welcoming me into their hearts and homes again. I felt truly blessed to be surrounded by their grace and love.

Have a lovely rest of the week and thank you for letting me share these with you.

xo,

Ivy

  1. All you photos are beautiful but the image of the Sydney opera house is stunningly so. It somehow draws me in like I could step right into the frame. Wonderful!

  2. Your photos brought back wonderful memories of the 9 months that I spent living and working in Sydney. There is so much contrast in the city; and all available for the exploring through the simple act of just following your feet.

    The Luna Park shot reminded me of the Feelgood Festival: and discovering that I didn’t like Ferris Wheels half way through riding in one!
