Hello from Sydney, Australia! We’ll Be Right Back!

BRB

Hello peachies!

I hope you’ve all been well.

Over the past month, the hubby, little peach and I packed up our lives in Hong Kong, said some tearful ‘goodbyes’ and jetted to the place I’ve always called home, Sydney Australia. There has been SO much to do and still SO SO SO much to do, to say it’s been a tad hectic would be a major understatement.

To be completely honest, I have been utterly exhausted and still am. Just to give you a bit of an idea of what’s been going on, the week before we left Hong Kong was totally crazy. Believe it or not, on our way to our farewell drinks with friends (which was subsequently cancelled), the hubby had to be taken to the emergency due to extreme muscle pains. And if having a hubby who wasn’t allowed to do any heavy lifting during a big international move wasn’t bad enough, the little peach fell seriously ill with salmonella. This then led to little to no sleep and the little peach needed her mommy more than ever. So, blogging, emails and Simply Peachy and Simply Peachy Baby just had to wait. As did all the loveliness I had in store for you peachies – the beautiful real weddings, sweet engagements, pretty inspiration boards and fun DIYs.

I’m now happy to report that the hubby and little peach have both recovered, but the little peach is having a really hard time with the move and settling into her new surroundings so sleep still seems like something from a past life. Our boxes are also arriving soon so expect a lot of hair pulling and frustration whilst we try to unpack and squeeze nine years worth of boxes into our temporary abode with a clingy little peach around my leg. Fun stuff huh?!

So dear peachies, I am so sorry for not being around and the perfect blogger that I should be, but I do hope you understand. Please bear with me during this taxing time. I promise all the peachy goodness will be back once life is a little more settled and sleep is within sight. Simply Peachy and Simply Peachy Baby will be back with a bang from our new home in Sydney, Australia.

I am super excited about this move and cannot wait to bring you the new and improved Aussie Simply Peachy really soon! If you’d like to be a part of these exciting times or have a wedding, engagement or shoot to submit, be sure to drop me an email to see how you can get involved!

But for now, it’s back to the joys of relocation admin, unpacking and cuddling the little peach. We’ll be right back!

I can’t tell you how much I’ve missed our daily doses of peachiness!

Pastel Inspiration Board

I don’t know about you, but I am already excited for Summer and Spring. Nothing says warm weather more than pastel colours. Which is why I love this combination of pastel pink and mint paired alongside with a sunny yellow and lilac. All these delicate colours make me think of a perfect Spring wedding… sun shining… a cool breeze blowing. Top this off with sweet pink and mint tones, pastel macarons and pretty florals, who wouldn’t love this colour combination? This board is making me so happy right now!

Simply Peachy On The Move!

Hello peachies!

I hope you’re all peachy keen.

You may have noticed that things have been a little quieter than usual around here lately and I’m here to explain it all:

(1) The hubby, little peach and I have been busy packing up our life in Hong Kong as we prepare to move back to the land downunder next month! Yes, you heard right. Simply Peachy is heading home – back to Sydney – and I’m pretty excited (but at the same time horrified by the logistics of it all).

(2) We’re trying to tie up all the loose ends and the icky admin before we go which, as you can imagine, is oh-so tedious!

(3) We’re trying to see and spend time with all our friends and family to say our goodbyes before we go and that has been super sad and hard.

So, I’m sincerely sorry for not updating Simply Peachy as often as usual and for being extra slow in replying to emails and submissions. I’ll be in and out over the next month or so while I finish up here and settle myself and the family back into Sydney, so please bear with me during this chaotic time!

BIG thank you for your patience and never ending support. I can’t wait to bring you the new and improved Aussie Simply Peachy really soon! If you’d like to be a part of these exciting times or have a wedding, engagement or shoot to submit, be sure to drop me an email to see how you can get involved with Simply Peachy!

But for now, speaking of Oz, check out these gorgeous Aussie weddings and inspiration shoots from our archives!
