It’s been a while. How have you all been coping this crazy year?
I’ve been debating with myself whether or not to start this blog again or shut it down completely. It’s been such a long time between posts and, is blogging even a thing any more?
After much reflection and indecision, I decided to keep the blog going for a few reasons; 1) I do like to look back on places we’ve been and experiences we’ve had and 2) As a creative, I thrive on being inspired by other creatives in Melbourne and around the world. So, here we are. Back at it again…
Currently, we are nearing the end (fingers crossed) of a 6-week lockdown in Melbourne, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are wearing masks when we leave home and have a night-time curfew. It’s a strange and uncertain time, but I know, and hope, we can look back on this time and think wow, wasn’t that a crazy chapter of our lives, but we got through it.
Speaking of chapters, this month Mark and I celebrated 10 years of living in this fine city of Melbourne. It feels like a strange time to celebrate, and it is, especially in a city where most of what we enjoy about it is difficult to currently enjoy.
But it’s easy to focus on the negatives, so instead I wanted to celebrate by reflecting on all the good times Mark and I have had here. We’ve also learnt A LOT along the way, somehow survived many bitterly cold winters, seen so much great art, both indoors and out and my oh my, we’ve never eaten so well in our lives!
So this is an ode to 10 years in Melbourne, featuring ALL the Melbourne things we hold dear to our hearts.
Stay safe and stay well x
