Dear Woodi,

In you I found my other half.....

Seven years ago to the day, we had a beautiful wedding. And to this day it still remains the most magical day of my life. If someone had of told me then, that I would love you more in seven years than I did in the moment we became 'Mr & Mrs'..... I would have told them it was impossible! I believed that my heart couldn't possibly love someone more than I loved you in that moment.

I was so very wrong, and have never been happier to be wrong. My Love for you has blossomed and bloomed one thousand times over since we married. My heart forever growing to hold all the new ways in which I love you. And I now know, that as impossible as it seems, my love and heart will continue to swell in all our years together.

Seven years ago was the start of a new life together and the beginning of a family, the gifts that our marriage has given me are endless and I will forever be thankful for you and all you give me in this life. Thank you for the past seven years of loving marriage, for all the magic you have poured into my soul, for standing by me in my times of struggle and celebrating my victories.

I look forward to many more years, beautiful moments and memories together, I know that with you by my side I can make it through the darkest of storms and there will always be light and magic in my life. We are one, for in you I found my other half.

Yours in love,

Traci xoxox

Entering a new phase of my exsistence......

I have tried a couple of times to come back to my beloved blogging after a difficult period but each time it never quite felt right, I couldn't reclaim my little space with comfort and confidence. But I am entering a new and exciting phase of my existence and am a distinguished *scoff* 30 year old now.... and I really want to start blogging again about all the new and exciting (and the boring, mundane and miserable) things happening in my life right now.

BUT so many exciting things have happened while I've been gone and it doesn't feel right leaving such a huge gap in this little blog of my life - even if I'm the only one to read it....

I made some really big changes, and eliminated some negative people and influences. I spring cleaned my life and I have to say, when you clear out the negative it is AMAZING how much positivity flows in to your world.

I made a lot of new friends and started living life a lot more, all of which lead to me having the confidence to do this....
Change my look completely!! I really stepped out of my comfort zone here and the changes since have been many.

I started taking time out for myself - without feeling guilty! Time out used to be time locked away in my room or a candle lit bubble bath (which I still love and frequently enjoy!). Now time out is girls night out with my friends - going to Chicks at the Flicks and dinner, and going to the gym with my friends and family members.

My husband and I went away with our friends to CMC Rocks the Hunter - a country music festival for 3 nights! Kid free for 3 nights was such a weird feeling, something I wouldn't have dreamt of doing. Despite missing our kidlets we had a fantastic time, it was so great for Woodi and I to take time out as a couple and just enjoy one another. Something that we didn't do enough of, but are now making a conscious effort to do more. My hair (although shorter than it's ever been) was let down more in those 4 days than it has been in such a very long time.
We finally got the car we've been wanting for the past 7 years, a Holden Jackaroo! It's my new ride and I love it :o) We have taken it on a few adventures already, one of our fave was 4WDing on Stockton Beach. The kids thought it was amazing that we were driving on the sand and in the dunes. It was so much fun and I even worked up the confidence to take the wheel myself, it was really nerve racking but I felt amazing afterward.

The twins Moo and Boo started playing Soccer this year and after some falling through of coaches I was nominated and have been having a ball with it! Our family have been looking forward to having the girls involved in a sport that we can go along and watch, and are really enjoying it!! We have quite a little cheer family gathered for every game and Loo even wears a pair of the clubs soccer shorts to each game :o)

I started working again and started my own business with the Oasis Homewares franchise, it took a lot to put myself out there again. But I love the products and love working again! I have to admit I love the paper work more though than putting myself out there... It's been hard pushing through my anxiety and various other issues but I gave it my best shot.

For the moment though I am giving Oasis a little break, until I get on top of some of my issues. After over 12 years of suffering from depression and 5 or more from Social Anxiety I am finally on a new and exciting path. I have a team of doctors/specialists with a treatment plan that has me extremely hopeful for a better and brighter future where I can reclaim what these illnesses have taken from - but I thinks that in itself is a post... or three.

So it is with this new and promosing direction in life I feel I have reclaimed my comfort and confidence and want my little bloggy patch back to express my struggles and celebrations of these paths I am taking and the many improvements in my life.... I hope this is the first post back in a long series on Moodi Mumma's Musings xox

My 30th at Old Texas Ranch

For my 30th B'day a group of my family and friends hopped on a coach and headed to the Old Texas Ranch for an evening of fun!

I had a fantastic evening celebrating turning 30. I was the 1st (of many in our party) to ride the mechanical bull, I was pulled up on stage to dance to the YMCA and ended up singing a song with the band :) We played games and danced all night, it was a wonderful way to celebrate surrounded by the special people In my life.

Last words from me in my 20's...

Well my 20's have been kind and cruel. They have seen me:
* get engaged
* had my Pop taken from me
* get married
* taken my first trip overseas
* fall pregnant for the 1st time
* have my beautiful twins
* move interstate
* fall pregnant for a second
* have my precious Loo
* Lose touch with my long time best friends
* watch my husband lose his nanna
* Lose my Grandma
* Remove negative people and influences from my life
* Meet some wonderful new friends

I am happy to say goodbye to my 20's and embrace my 30's... I feel they'll be my best yet :0)
