Long weekend before Christmas

We just came back from a wonderful long weekend at one of my favorite beachside destinations - Mooloolaba on the Sunshine Coast. It was perfect although a little hot on Saturday. We took my husbands staff away for a night and out for dinner for the second year running. It's a great way to unwind and time to take life a little less seriously. My family arrived yesterday to celebrate our parents 40th wedding anniversary. There were 19 of us with all the kids! Quite big!
Hope you week is great, Hayley x

This is a a great image of what Christmas looks like here in Australia!
As much as i am looking forward to a white Christmas in New York one year, I must say, we really are blessed to enjoy a long summer and great food this time of the year also!

yay! sounds like you had a fabulous time, there is going to be 30 of us in Noosa for ten days for christmas and new years, you may be able to hear us from Brisbane!

It's hard to find shots of an Aussie Christmas isn't it, hoping to post some more later in the week xxx (love your new blog header too)

Ah beautiful Mooloolaba... we have holidayed there, every year for the last 15 years, since before they had high rise buildings. Our first stay at the Landmark, we were taking the plastic off the new couches and dusting building dust of the bench tops! This is our first year not at Mooloolabah. We went to Coolangatta and I spent the week saying "this is so like Mooloolaba"!
Sounds like you had a lovely break! I love your new header by the way. A-M xx

Beautiful photos! Looks like you had a nice weekend. It was 65 degrees today here in new jersey...which is very unusual but it was really nice. There is definitely something special about christmas in new york but I wouldn't mind spending just one in Australia!!!

Just reading that word Mooloolaba, makes me feel homesick. Happy Christmas - this Ozzie is having a very cold one this year, xv.

Thanks Kimberlee, you're going to love Noosa, and Vicki, I would adore to be in France for the holidays.
All you girls over there in the States will just have to put Australia on your Christmas list one year.
Thanks everyone for stopping by and leaving lovely comments. Hayley x
