Our renovation project of 2016 was just about turning our ordinary suburban home into the one of our dreams.

Weekend Wanderings: Oldenburg Vineyards, Stellenbosch

A few Sundays back we were invited to spend the day out in amidst the vineyards of Stellenbosch, and I can never turn down a trip to the winelands!

Weekend Wanderings: Breakfast at Cafe Bon Bon, Franschhoek

This week’s weekend wandering is short and sweet… because my visit to this destination was, unfortunately, far too short and I didn’t spend as much time here as I should have!
