What a crazy year this has been, Mum, but today is the LUCKY 13th!

As Mamy said, life is not a straight line…  And yeah, it’s crooked as hell right now, but there is a beauty and a whole lot of love in all these kinks.

Happy Birthday Jan

Hey Mum, the shot on the left could have been taken in our garrigues (bushland) only yesterday!  Incredible how the landscapes in South Australia and the Minervois can look so similar…

mum, it's your birthday!

Happy Birthday to you!! – I swear your face hasn’t changed a bit since then.

Here’s to a great year, more reunions and please, come back SOON xoxo
