The Days in Between..

My dear friends, it's been a long while since I've written on these pages, which are so dear to my heart.  And the days in between, words can not begin to describe.  First of all I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your love, prayers and support, comments and emails.  Every word has helped more than you will ever imagine and having such an amazing community by my side throughout the last few months, has in part, enabled me to find my strength and gather the courage, to find my feet and continue to pursue my passion.


The days in between my posts have been filled with so many emotions, many still too raw to put into words. I held Ben's hand I pulled the door closed on our little Mildura cottage, hooked up our beautiful little caravan and set out on a new chapter, as we had planned to come home to Brisbane.  Our road trip is a time that I will always cherish and although I miss our little cottage and my dear friends in Mildura each day, I know that this was a move back to our families that we had to make.


Over the past few weeks, I've been slowly getting back into the real world, working with my amazing mum and sister to bring to life, Wilde Asher, our online boutique that I've been planning for many many years.  Through this process, I've made the decision to make Her Library Adventures a personal blog, a place where Ben and I can share our adventures and a very special place where our beautiful little boy can always be remembered.  

I'm very fortunate to be able to move the creative aspect of my blog, over to Wilde Asher. Its been a wonderful experience to create a new space and I'm really looking forward to settling in with a cup of tea and filling it with all our ideas and inspiration.  


Tonight I hit the publish button on the Wilde Asher blog and was overwhelmed by emotion.  At last, the space I've been dreaming of for so long has come to life and next week so will our lovely little boutique.  Day by day my heart is filled with a little more joy and my passion begins to re-emerge, forever guided by Cohen's eternal shining light.

I'd love for you to join me on the next part of my adventure and look forward to sharing moments from this beautiful world with you.

Much Love
Sophie
