The Daytime Adventurers

Tiger & Peacock

My mum and I are ridiculously close. One of the most delightfully unexpected things about becoming a mumma myself, has been the daytime adventures we go on with the rug rat. Seeking out the perfect piece of lemon tart here, or a little shop there, it always feels a bit naughty (like we're skipping school!) when we do something so delicious together.

On one of our latest adventures, we went to Fitzroy North to find Tiger & Peacock. I'd read about this small emporium with its vision to inspire through a collections of homewares, furnishings, antiques and jewellery and wanted a piece of it!

Heading to an area that we don't spend much time in, and a shop I had never visited before, made that morning feel like we were on holiday. I guess in a funny we were on holiday from the familiar. And it's these moments of discovering something new with mum by my side that I treasure and adore.

Happy Friday to you, and whatever adventures come your way!

* This photo was taken at a cousin's wedding, only 2 weeks after I had junior. I think I look tired and shell shocked, but mum looks so gentle and beautiful - as she always does!

    Re. this post - I know justwhat you mean by those lovely times where you get to hang out with your mum and little one - it does feel like skipping school in the best way possible. those days are such a gift (both mine are at school now :(.
    PS Couldn't agree more about the Jennifer Hawkins Marie Claire cover - how ludicrous!
