I reminisce about New Zealand a lot- I will always remember fondly the time we lived there. I know I've mentioned it before, this week I was feeling particularly thankful for the time I was able to spend there.
New Zealand has been at the forefront of my mind recently for a number of reasons. Our Kiwi friend was visiting the this week! It was refreshing to reconnect, it was SO fun to hear a NZ accent again and it made me feel more committed than ever to returning to New Zealand.
Unfortunately, New Zealand has also been at the top of my mind due to the tragedy in Christchurch. The death toll is creeping up and what is left behind has been deemed a national state of emergency.
I feel compelled to mention it here because my heart goes out to all those touched by the earthquake-- to all my friends and readers in New Zealand, I'm sending you love.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from our time there; I think you'll agree it's a very special place.
If you're interested in donating; one of my favorite finds has been this site which allows you to download New Zealand music for free with a donation.
