Kia ora,

I needed a break from work after facilitating events and trainings through June. I also experienced the loss of a close family member and friend over the last few months, and welcomed a new mokopuna into te Ao Marama (the world). Life’s like this sometimes, and taking time away from our everyday routine can help reset ourselves. My ‘big’ sister and I spent four days in Ōtautahi (Christchurch) recently doing just that. Blue skies and cool days made long leisurely walks very enjoyable. I highly recommend it!! My cup is full!
