2 Dutchies at Ettalong :
The owner of the shop was a blonde bombshell named Marjan, the name of her business was "Goddess on Holiday". The shop was filled to bursting with all the things that I love; beaded purses, sarongs, sheepskin jackets, leather belts with leather piping: a pseudo-hippie's delight.
I tried on a few things hopefully, but Margie was the lucky one.
Steve, man that he is, and attracted by #blondebombshells, started chatting with the proprietress who was #Dutch and #charismatic and who opened the conversation with : "I knew your wife was Dutch too. As soon as I saw her I said to myself , 'now there is a farmer's daughter', 'cause I am a farmer's daughter." she said with a smile and a toss of her blonde mane, winking at Steve. "Yeah, she's Dutch alright, and you sure are too! I noticed that as soon as I saw you!" said Steve sheepishly.
So we talked a bit about how each of us came to be here, in #Australia.
Marge was determined on an embroidered coat, and Marjan was determined to satisfy her with a discount, but Steve without any cash on hand, had to figure a new plan and quickly. "This is Australia!" said Marjan, "you can't do anything without cash!" "I guess I'll need cash for the ferry too!" said Steve with the realization. "God, yes! Do you want to borrow some?" Her friendly and trusting nature warmed us to her instantly, so after failing to get cash out of the empty ATM, we took her up on her offer. "Thank you, Marjan! You're a gorgeous person! Let's have a photo to remember you by!" So the two Dutchies stood behind her #boho counter and #smiledforthecamera. -----------------------------------------------------------------------

Let's get to know our partners!
Each week, I'll be sharing a question you can ask your partner to prompt conversation and guide you down the road of deeper connection.
A simple google search will produce many,
many more questions - so use this to get the ball rolling. You may be surprised at
all you discover!
This week's question: If you could have your spouse experience ONE special time in your life with
you that he/she did not experience, what special time would that be and why? What do you think they would feel about that experience?

Another self post but happy chrimbs to all ya insta peeps and jus wanna share that this time last year I was in the throes of a mental health crisis n wasn’t sure why I was alive, this year hasn’t been easy by any means but I can say 12 months later I have met so many kind and hilarious people and done so many stupid and hilarious things, and that really made all the bad days worth it.

So unmengen thanks to everyone I know and sending good vibes to anyone who needs it. Xo #gettheconversationstarted

There is no ‘I’ in the word team! The vision awaits for an appointed time. However in order for that vision to be fulfilled you need the right people around you in order for it to come to fruition!
This week I challenge you all to look around you and ask yourself are the people I surround myself with a part of the vision or a part of the distraction!
Have a blessed week ahead!
