Last night, Lady Lucy took us for a walk down to the beach.

She was really excited to show us the way to her favorite sunset-viewing spot!

Unfortunately, there was quite a bit of cloud coverage, so all we could see of the sunset was that sliver of orange on the bottom right…

The clouds in Perth never seem to disappoint, though.  How gorgeous is this?!

While living in Perth definitely has it’s perks, Kyle & I are always keen for an excuse to travel when the weekend rolls around.  Earlier this year, our friends Olivia & Trey acquired their newest adventure — Karridale Cottages & Hop Farm.  When Olivia mentioned they were doing a massive planting of native seedlings on the property, we jumped at the chance to head down south, roll up our sleeves & do a bit of work on the farm.

This gorgeous, tree-lined drive welcomes you onto the property…

Day 1: Some of the seedlings we gave a new home…

Todd was our driver for the day.:)

While Kyle, Todd & I went to work planting the seedlings, Olivia followed behind, securing plant bags to protect the baby trees and help them grow.

Day 2:  Olivia + Fuggles heading back out to the farm…

One of the best parts about Karridale Cottages is that they are dog-friendly.  Lucy had the time of her life being a country dog & making friends with Fuggles!

While Todd & I watered/fertilised all 300+ newly-planted seedlings, Kyle helped Trey prepare the Hop Yard for their inaugural crop.

What an amazing weekend!  I’m exhausted just thinking about all the work we did.:) As much fun as it was getting my hands dirty, I’m really looking forward to coming back to Karridale Cottages as a guest in a few weeks’ time for my Big 3-0 getaway!

Thanks for inviting us down to your (not-so) little slice of heaven, Olivia + Trey!  Any time you need a bit of help, you know who to call! 😉

Over the weekend, Kyle & I had the pleasure of meeting this handsome little bub.

Sweet baby Jack had a bit of a bumpy start, but nearly 3 weeks into life outside of the womb and he already has everyone wrapped around his precious little fingers.
