MOST RECENT

Today we walked from the homestead to the graveyard to pay our repects to my mum's paternal grandmother. ⚘

On the first attempt to escape Latvia she was with my mum, her siblings and their mother sitting on the back of a truck laden with logs and building materials. When the truck rolled over an embankment everyone was injured and taken to hospital. 🏥

Sadly Milite didn't make it. 🍁

This terrible twist of fate meant that my grandfather was given leave to return home to bury his mother and look after his now paralyzed wife, newborn son and 5 other children. 💔

A few months later they made their second escape attempt walking out of Cesis to Ventspils over 220km away taking a cart (where my grandmother lay) and a cow (to provide milk for the new baby). The rest walked. They took the back streets and laneways for days on end. When food was scarce bread was made from carrots and jam from nettles. They finally made it to a port and were allowed onto a boat taking wounded German soldiers back to Germany. 🖤

It was moving to let Milite know that her granchild, great grandchild and two great great grandchildren had returned to visit her from Australia to a now free Latvia! 🇱🇻

Spending Saturday morning having a bit of an unwind from the week just been. It has been crazy busy between my day job and approving designs and concepts for the second sample (which should arrive soon), this coffee is my 5 minutes of solitude. Before I get up and get this website live!! (Hopefully)
But seriously, where can I get this ring?? Credit: @justineleconte

Behind the scenes at my 🏠 This is a little photo to get to know me a little better - the me, behind the Instagram page. I love candles, soft music, oil burners, positive affirmation cards, cups of tea, I love the saying “carpe diem”, addicted to travelling to Europe, and living by the ocean. All these things are to fill up my cup, to keep me rejuvenated and sane from working in the legal industry and from working in the space of human rights breaches and violence and family conflict. People often have an idea that lawyers are abrupt, hard, intimidating, or rude (and unfortunately the profession is filled with many of those types). That’s not my style. I want to bring more peace, love, and kindness into the world. I believe with every ounce of my being, that we can achieve outstanding legal results by being kind, sincere, and compassionate (and we do! 💪). The world needs more softness and care. That’s my work in the 🌍. #love #peace #behindthescenes #therealme #kindness #zen #humanity #lawyer #lawyerlife #candles #carpediem #saturdaymorning #relaxation #humanrights #townsvillelawyer #brisbanelawyer
