It's Friday and nearly July.

Been sick.
My siblings tell me I don't blog enough.
They get quite agro about it. I tell them I have a life. If I didn't have a life, I'd be exchanging pictures all day with my sister.
Like such.

.. and ..

Here's gangsta Avi. (please note it's a snapchat filter and not the real deal)

The new wheels.
The Livians got a car a month ago. It was Duey.
I needed a downgrade and they needed an upgrade.
They went in and got a Vanguard and I got their Duey.
Not crazy. Not crazy at all.

Shooting my last wedding ever tomorrow. I said that last time, but the bride is the mother of the last bride I shot and I couldn't say no to my favorite ginger Rach.
I am seriously not a fan of weddings photographically.

Super Moon, Te Mata and Ariel.

Last nights Super Moon. Te Mata Peak. Safe to say, Hubbalush loves her Ariel. She's my favorite big sister Mum. (Shame Tyler, Shai, Nessa and Rome) Goodnight Hawkes Bay. Earthquake: I felt it. I got my child up and ran outside onto my concrete porch where I thought it would be safest. The Seismologist on the news the next day said running outside is not a good idea in the event of an Earthquake. Now I know for next time. Hawkes Bay didn't feel the effects of it like Southland did .. and is continuing to do. Over 1000 aftershocks since it all began. Tyler is stuck on the South Island and finishing out their tour, much to my dismay. It's a disaster zone in parts down there and although she's on the skirts of the danger zones, you'd think it professional AND safe to cancel the tour and bring the troop home .. but no. Some stupid doesn't think so. Goodnight.

Kawe Mate.

Recently an Aunty of mine, who is staunch in her Maori culture, talked to me about the protocol of Kawe Mate. Kawe Mate is a custom during the maori process of death that involves taking the deceased memory back to where they were well known or considered home. It's a custom that is basically a gesture of love to family members who weren't able to attend the tangi. My family never practised it at all and I don't think it's necessary to start. I carry his memory in my heart, as does his Mom, that's all that matters. Happy Mothers Day!
