Gemma and Oscar’s Flower Filled Hunter Valley Wedding Image by Lisse Photography

Spring has sprung and the weather is turning! We can see the glimpses of summer whispering in the breeze, and everyone has just that little more spring in their step (pardon the pun!). Though I’m sweltering away in bluesy New Orleans, all reports from Oz indicate mood shifts and Vitamin D increases – which makes me excited for our return. Now Melbourne you behave for that day!

The whole patterned team have all been hard at work in all sorts of ways, from working and planning, to painting and packing . What a week! If yours has been as busy, it’s time to take a break, and enjoy the roundup of this week’s specialty blogs. Enjoy!
