Blue Skies and a Day in the Sun


Hello lovelies. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. It's a long weekend for us here in Brisbane and for that I'm grateful. The weather has been amazing and we have had these utterly gorgeous sunny days. 

Today, Jason and I had a mini adventure. We went to church in the morning, then we went to Southbank to have some breakfast. There are tons of cafes and restaurants to choose from there and we tried a place we hadn't been to before called Poppy's Basket Bakery and Deli. It was a cute little place and the food was good. 

We then walked around and looked at the markets. There were two kinds on today. The usual Southbank markets on the weekend and the Young Designers Market that is on once a month.

We then sat in the sun on one of the grassy patches and just relaxed. That photo at the top was taken then. I ended up showing the original photo instead of the Instagram version. I just had to show how blue the sky was. It was beautiful.

Our other plan was to go and watch The Avengers but we had more time to kill so we walked over the bridge into the city central. And there was another lot of markets going on. It was the Suitcase Rummage markIt was also great. People selling out of their suitcases. A whole ton of vintage clothes, shoes, books and handmade items. We had a quick browse. 


This is a terrible shot but I didn't think to take any closer ones when we were looking around. This market is also on the first Sunday of the month. 

Tonight we are going to see The Avengers because by the time we walked back to Southbank Cinemas there were 'few' seats left. This was at least half an hour before the movie. I have to remember that Southbank usually always sells out. 

I love days like this. Exploring my city and just soaking in the sun and atmosphere. It's so laid back and it makes me really appreciate living in Brisbane. I want to have more of these days (and document it more).

Have a wonderful week.
