Saturday perfection

Yesterday we ended our fabulous week in Melbourne celebrating my beautiful sister in law’s 40th Birthday. It was held at Stones of the Yarra Valley and it was very grown up and FAB. 40th’s sure beat 21st’s that’s for sure.

The location was amazing and even though the day was miserable, wet, windy and cold it was a perfect day. The food was spectacular. The wine flowed. And the company was sublime. I got to spend the day with all my sister’s and brother, celebrate a very special member of our family and enjoy the occasion kid free. Afterwards we got home to all the kids and celebrated together. It’s one of the best days I’ve had in a long time and it’s exactly how I’d like to celebrate my own in a few years time.
