Happy Australia Day!!

And HAPPY ONE YEAR BLOGGING TO ME! My little baby blog that I love so much! I thought it was one year today, but it turns out it was one year yesterday. But who's counting right?

So AUSTRALIA DAY!! My day began with a big spirulina banana smoothie made with coconut water, and then I was off to the beach. My favourite beach in the whole world (yes I am aware I am yet to see every beach in the whole world to really make an educated and experiential comment, but I don't care).
North Curl Curl. I love it! 8am and it was already chockas with people. I was there to clear my head a bit and enjoyed the run I did up and down the beach before jumping in the ocean to cool off and feel the cleansing effects of the salt water on my skin.

I was off to yoga next, but got the timetable muddled up and couldn't hang around longer that I had initially planned, so drove home and decided to go for a run instead. And in 30 degree heat. I did it yesterday afternoon and felt great so I was off again. 4.5km bush run, dripping with sweat, and came home to drown myself under this -

The good ol' backyard Aussie sprinkler.

Such childhood memories right there. I think every Aussie has fond memories of jumping through sprinklers in their youth.

Maya and Oliver came over for lunch which was so nice as I hadn't seen either of them for a while. We munched on vegies, my zucchini hommous, raw bread, a big salad, and delicious grapes and watermelon that Maya and Oliver brought over to share.

It was all so yummy. For my salad - I sliced up chinese broccoli, threw in alfalfa and mixed sprouts, fresh corn, and then dressed it with olive oil, a dash of sesame oil, some apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper. Quick. Easy. Green and Gold. Yummy.

All smiles in the kitchen. With my Australian flag temporary tattoo!

I hope you all had an amazing day!
