Warm wishes

From us to you :)
We are getting ready for our big trip to Argentina, where we will be joined by the whole New Zealand (and more) crew. Cannot wait to see everyone (I just wish somebody would do the packing for me!).
I hope you have some awesome holidays, full of fun, love, family and friends.

I had to wait forever for Sophie to go to bed, and she has been waking me up just after 5:00 am lately, so I am happy that I managed to do something!
