As soon as I came across Sacred Social on Instagram I knew that I needed to find the soul behind this meme, this feed and the abundance of heart in these messages! Sophie radiates the sacred energy of her feed and vision in an online world where we increasingly need more and more of this.
If you’re heading to the Central Coast this Summer these are my must visits for some of the best that our little part of the world has to offer! My recent birthday family dinner at Fish Dining was perfection, one of our local favourites Young Barons is pasta perfection and for a bit of high tea kitsch another local is Hatters Tea House. The Central Coast is a bit of a gem, and although this is no secret, having an Insider who adores the explore and who seeks out all things joy helps to narrow down where to visit!
It was 18 years ago this week that my fragile, broken 48 year old Mother was no longer able to fight the cancer that had slowly destroyed her body for 6 years. She died in Gosford Hospital in the early hours of the morning on the 15th of January 2000. 18 years … sounds like a long time. Most days it does actually feel like another lifetime, an alternate universe, surreal and disconnected from the life I have rebuilt since that day. Other times I can easily recall the smells and sights, touching her forehead moments after she had died, spending time on my own in her room gathering her things in the hours after she left us.
