JAN 2017

There’s nothing better than feeling at home, especially when you’re away from home.

We spent our first few days at this lovely Takapuna home that Polly (bless her) booked for us on AirBnB. Just about fell in love with the entire north shore of New Zealand because of that home, the garden, the big windows, and all the little tidbits of good homey loving. I really got a feel of vacation here.
