Motherland...

The Mr and I spent last week's long weekend in Hoi An, Vietnam.   We had an amazing mini getaway and stayed at one of the most incredible resorts I have ever been lucky enough to stay at - a completely luxe experience.   We also spent time in the quaint little town of Hoi An, walking the streets and feasting on yummy Vietnamese food.  A minibreak full of contrasts. 

I always love being in Vietnam.  Although I was born and raised in Australia,  I am of Vietnamese heritage so there is always something that feels so familiar whenever I visit (even though I haven't actually spent that much time there).  Maybe it's seeing where I come from, being able to read the signs and understand the language (sorta most of the time! :)) or the familiar food smells... I'm not quite sure.

One of my favourite Vietnamese food blogs, The Ravenous Couple, posted about their recent trip to Vietnam.  It's a great little photo essay of their journey in Vietnam.  Read their post and you can probably see why I love it there so much!

Music memories

I have the office to myself this afternoon so I can ditch the headphones and am turning up the music.

I used to be really up to date with music, read music blogs and keep up with new songs, artists, go to gigs.. but this has sort of faded out in the last few years. These days I seem to rely a lot on Spotify and their playlists and recommendations which is great for busy people!

But this afternoon I am feeling a bit nostalgic so reminiscing and playing some songs played at our wedding back in 2010 which is bringing back some beautiful memories.

Today I need to concentrate and write a briefing paper for my boss' boss.  Being in an open plan office it means putting on my headphones and turning on Spotify to listen to their Afternoon Acoustic playlist.  It's my go-to playlist and features this sweet little tune from John Mayer...
