we are where we are meant to be.

We are back home, okay so we have been for a few days already, but its just been a hectic week.

Our long weekend in Cape Town was divine, in fact it felt like we were gone about a week, which is a good thing. We spent the rest of the weekend just visiting some of our favourite places.
I was very nervous going back to Cape Town, this was the first time both of us had been back since we left in February. It was the first time back to our old house. I just knew it was going to be a tad emotional, and I was so scared that we would have major regrets about moving back to Joburg.

My parents have bought our old house, so we are lucky enough to be able to go there whenever we can. So when we arrived at the house, it was one of those bittersweet moments, we were both sad and so excited at the same time. My parents have turned our house into the perfect holiday home. It is beautiful.

And going back to Cape Town, was just what we needed. While it is without a doubt, the most beautiful place in South Africa, and no matter how much we love it there, it's just not home to us. Home is Joburg, home is where our family is, home is where our friends are.

We are just where we are meant to be. And we are loving it!

Isn't it a good feeling to know that you're where you're meant to be?

And CT and your glorious holiday home will be there whenever you feel like a visit!

Exactly Shayne, I think that's what makes it easier.

Fabulous pics, looks like you had a ball, weather was good to you too. I feel the opposite now, when in Johannesburg I just know its not home for me even though my son and close friends are there.
