Elsie and Joan

I have some pretty amazing women in my life. 

Mum, sister, cousins, aunts, girlfriends that rock my world.  They are a constant source of inspiration, support, love, encouragement and laughter. I am blessed to know and love each of them.  There's no doubt that they will all feature often on this blog but there are two extra special ladies that always remind me of just how lucky I am.

Elsie and Joan. My Nana's.



Gorgeous!  But what they also have in common is their warmth, generosity and strength.  These are two incredibly strong women, their fortitude is something I in turn, draw strength from.

I'm planning to profile each of them individually on separate posts, but collectively, they've been major influences and shaped my life significantly.  They remind me that I've got what it takes to get through tougher times and to appreciate all the good things.  They worked hard for the lucky life I have.  

People say you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family.  Well, I couldn't have chosen better if I'd tried!
