On the weekend Jason and I got our engagement photos done by Laura. We were a little awkward at first because we didn't know how to act natural but over time it got so much easier. Laura is fantastic! I started to feel less self conscious even though there were a fair few people around. There were two weddings at New Farm Park, well they were getting their photos taken.
Afterwards we sat and have a late afternoon picnic which was really lovely. Then the 4 (Josh, Laura's hubby was there too) of us watched Public Enemies.
I really enjoyed this movie. It was intense and really interesting. I was completely fascinated by the story and loved the clothes, the coats and the hats.
While waiting for the ferry I took this photo (I lightened it a bit). It was such a beautiful night or I guess you would call this Twilight. Jason and I took the ferry to New Farm Park. Brisbane is known as the River City so a lot of people take the ferry to parts of the city.
Yet again I'm feeling very dreamy and thoughtful and it makes me want to go outside and sit in the sun and read, write , think and daydream.

This looks so cosy and a great place to relax in the sun. I think I will when we get our house we will need to create a space like this in our backyard. I can imagine myself spending a great deal of time here.
I'm dreaming of our wedding, but I'm also dreaming of our life together. I'm thinking about all the travelling I want to do with Jason. Our plan is to go to Europe next year and maybe go past the US on our way back home. And Laura and Josh got me thinking about living overseas for a few months.
I've been thinking a lot about my future plans. Travel is a definite. But I also want to do a lot of helping other people and being more creative and learning more skills. I told Jason that we should get involved in some type of overseas church activity. I would like to go to Cambodia and help out with the SHE Rescue home and Jason might go over to Vanuatu and help build schools and help to educate and train. I've also wanted to volunteer at the children's hospital and just get involved with helping people more.
I think I'm really starting to see the kind of impact I can make and how I can go out and experience by seeing new places, meeting new people and just loving life. I think I've been a bit stagnant and I feel like I have this renewed sense of passion to just live. I'm so incredibly blessed and I thank God for everything I have been provided with.
Sorry I didn't mean to go on this tangent when I started this post this morning. I actually didn't know what to write about and this just started flowing out of me. So I hope you make it though.
Just had to add a few pictures which pretty much sums up my feelings. That joy and sense of freedom and beauty.
I hope you all have a wonderful, beautiful week!
P.S. I have a blog award that I have to give out. Next post!
