This year has been a blur. One of our biggest hopes for 2019 was to spend as much time at home as possible, but we’ve somehow spent nearly 5 months of it living in hospital. This little getaway to Salt at Shoal Bay on the NSW Coast was so that I could finally work and shoot my collection with Spell, and a much needed change of scenery for us all.
We had barely checked in to Salt before realising a beautiful family that we know from hospital were also staying there with the same idea! It was surreal being able to get to know each other in the outside world, spontaneously popping champagne to celebrate our daughters. There is nothing more special than enjoying something so normal, and watching them finally able to meet and play together for the first time (both immunodeficient) despite having spent weeks living just rooms apart.
I think we’re going to need many more little getaways like this when possible, catching up on rest and soaking in the winter sunshine from the couch. This incredible view sure helps expand Ru’s world and horizons instead of isolated hospital rooms. We can count how many sunrises she’s seen on one hand and it makes it even more special being able to enjoy from the bed here. If only we could move in!
