    Hello muffins!  It’s me – little miss yellowtrace. Yes, the rumours are true – I’m back!

    I’ve missed you guys so much. How have you been? Did you enjoy all the guests posts while I was away? Did you have a favourite? Tell me, tell me, tell me! I want to hear everything. Anyway, I really do hope so – I personally thought they were rockin’ man.

     

     

    As for me… Well… I had the most amazing time. Europe was off-the-hook-insanely-awesome! True story. Seriously, how lucky am I to be able to take four entire weeks off to travel around? I don’t want to sound like I’m rubbing it in or anything, but I really do feel lucky. My bank account not so much, but my heart is full of joy and my mind is bursting with inspiration and beautiful memories.

    (Oh, and my closet is full of clothes, shoes and stuff… Oh, come on! It’s so much cheaper to shop in Europe than in Australia. Ask anyone. It’s true! Really, I actually SAVED so much money!)

     

     

    Now. Husband and I combined forces this year, and we came back with… wait for it… eight and a half THOUSAND photos. WHAT??? I know – we are completely crazy! It should not be allowed! But there – we did it.

    So now I have a bit of work cut out for me to sort through everything, and put some structure behind all the stuff I want to tell you about. There is SO MUCH I want to share with you. But I am going to need a little bit of time get organised.

     

     

    So… How about we make a deal? You give me a few days to do that, and I come back with some killer (!!) content for you. What do you say? Do we have a deal? Sweet! It’s a deal!

    By the way, I love making deals with you when the only person negotiating is me. This is great. I’m totally onto something here.

    Until we meet again, I’ll leave you with a little collection of photos from the trip. Hope you like the taste of what is yet to come. See you next week!

      I am super inspired looking at these pics. My husband and I picked up our visa’s to move to London for a few years this morning! My ‘places to see list’ is out of control. So glad you had a brilliant time!

    5. Deal!

      Favourite post… wow they were all brilliant.

      Welcome home! Love your photos, they are all amazing little snippets and I can’t wait to see more. You must be bursting with inspiration! I’m so glad that you had an amazing time.
      I loved the Jealous Curator post but they were all really cool.

      ps. you look so glamorous in the photos! I’m sitting at my desk turning lime green with envy!

      Welcome back Dana…from the photos it looks like you had a great time. All the guest posts were great but I particularly loved ‘For the love of Fes’. I so want to go there. Can’t wait to hear more about your European adventures.

      Welcome Back Dana. A toss up between Mr Mister (love the chalkboard house) and Pop up cities (spectacular)for me. Sifting through 8500 photos will be a fun project. The curse of the digital camera! By the way I negotiate with my children like that all the time. It works for all of us ha. Really looking forward to your upcoming posts.

    9. Sarah-Jane says:

      welcome back love! you know you’re a nutter, right? looking forward to the slideshow….

    10. Tijana says:

      Welcome back! I’m excited to see more of your photos! I’m crossing my fingers that I’ll get to take my own European vacation this summer so this is even more inspiration to make it happen.

      The collages are great. Especially for an impatient, big picture kind of person like me. Maybe you can make them clickable to a larger picture for details?

      You are lucky indeed.
