Creating in Sydney!

Hi Everyone just a quick update on my adventures in Sydney with Brad! Today we were going to go on a bus tour but it was full so we decided to walk down to Circular Quay and catch a ferry to Manly.   We had lunch at a local pub near the beach front, looked at some shops and ate some delicious passion fruit sorbet at the ferry terminal. Well, Brad had a salted caramel ice cream with a waffle cone. By this time I had chalked up 11 000 steps and felt spent!i made an executive decision to get an Ola ride back to our apartment. Needless to say, we are both exhausted. We had a chicken salad and now we are relaxing watching TV together! 

Tonight after our dinner I finally finished a Stampin’ Up! card kit I’ve been meaning to complete. These kits are so quick and easy to do!

Hope you enjoy your time wherever you are!
Until next time,
Keep smiling!
